Rusty grew up in Waldoboro and was raised by his grandparents, Naomi and Gerald McPhee. He graduated with the class of 2018 at Medomak Valley High School. Rusty enjoyed academics while in school. He was a member of the Cub Scouts. He had a huge passion for video games, was a big Harry Potter and "Dr. Who" fan and enjoyed swimming. He was a loving, big-hearted, caring, empathetic person as well as a jokester, telling jokes and “stirring it up!” He will be missed by his cat, Mittens, and his beagle, Butch.
