Obituary for Forrest "Rusty" Russell Stevens Jr.
Rusty Stevens of Eatonton passed away unexpectedly at his residence on Wednesday, March 30, 2016. He was born on July 20, 1942 to the late Forrest Russell Stevens Sr. and the late Phyllis Harvey Young Stevens. He moved to Georgia in 1958 from Oregon and lived in Dekalb County until he retired from Dekalb County Board of Education where he was an Elementary School Principal. He then moved to Putnam County in 1995. Through the Elks he spent many hours with the Veterans at the War Veterans Home in Milledgeville. He was an active member of the Eatonton Elks Lodge since 1998. With the lodge he started the free junior clinic for boys and girls at the Uncle Remus Golf Course, and naturally enjoyed playing golf every Monday and Friday most weeks. No service is planned at the present time. Rusty is survived by his wife Diane Stevens, children Forrest Russell Stevens III (Cheryle) of Lawrenceville, Rick Stevens (Stephanie) of Christ Church, New Zealand, brother Robert Stevens (Beverly) of Oregon, grandchildren Renee Wade (Chris), Rebekah Richards (Michael), Forrest Russell Stevens IV, Frank Robert Stevens, Rhys Stevens, Savannah Stevens, great grand children Lee Bowman, Thomas Richards, Grace Wade and several nieces, nephews and friends who will miss him dearly. In lieu of flowers the family has requested donations can be made to Georgia Elks Aide more children’s center, 2394 Morrison Road, Conyers, GA 30094 in his memory.
