    Rest in Peace, Rustoffa

    It's been years since I've visited the site and I'm sorry to bring sad news.

    Yesterday I was told by a family member that Rustoffa passed away on January 2, 2023. Funeral plans are still in the works and I'll post the link of where condolences can be made.

    He was a cool dude, longtime classic Van Halen fan and an awesome friend. He was one of the few members of this site that I became friends with offline.

    Rest easy, my friend...🕊🤍

        Sad news indeed... Rustoffa was someone I enjoyed their banter and post content. RIP

          How sad... A great, funny, positive poster here. It hurts.
          Had kind of made friends with Rustoffa a few years ago, as far as you can talk about friendship online.

          R.I.P and condolences to his family and friends.

                Social media apps took over and most of us started hanging out on Facebook, then Twitter, etc. I miss the message board forums. Thank goodness you kept this one going! I felt his Roth Army fam needed to know he's throwing back a couple of cold ones with Eddie on the other side.

                    Damn... sorry to hear about this. Was wondering what happened to Russ. Still got an old Waffle House shirt that he sent me for some reason.

                    Good to see Switch here again, despite the sad circumstances.

                              Sorry it took me awhile to get back with the info for Rustoffa's memorial service. It'll be this Saturday and you can give condolences to his family and friends online. ����
