William R. “Ronnie” Rust knew what he wanted to be when he grew up.
At the age of 7, or perhaps 8, he saw an ambulance drive by his home in Lyons Station. He watched it until it passed out of sight.
“I said, ‘That’s what I want to do … help somebody.”
Helping others who are “going through a tough time” continued to appeal to him. As he grew older, he realized that dealing with the death of a loved one was a tough time indeed.
