Obituary for Aron James Rust

Aron James Rust (AJ), age 90, passed away in his home on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
Aron was born on May 15, 1929 in Worthington, Minnesota to Aaron and Henrietta (Sietsema) Rust.
On June 22, 1951, Aron married Harriet Schneiderman. After serving his country in the Marine Corps for 2½ years, he and Harriet came back to Worthington to farm and raise a family.
Aron held many jobs including: farmer, postal carrier, bus driver, lawn care business owner, and wood craftsman.
His family and friends will remember him for his enjoyment of people, especially over a hot cup of coffee, and his involvement with the community as a 4-H leader, horse boarder/trainer, singer at weddings and funerals, and by helping out wherever he saw a need.
Aron loved God and accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior as a young boy and was a longtime member of First Baptist Church in Worthington where he was a song and Bible study leader.
Aron is preceded in death by his wife, Harriet Rust and parents, Aaron and Henrietta Rust.
Those left to cherish his memory are his two sisters, Dorothy Mae Bedell and Bethel Anderson; daughters Barbara (Dean) Johnson, Cherlyn (Milton) Bos, and son Kevin Rust; grandchildren Abram (Debra Oosterhouse) Bos, Jerusha (Brandon) Bos, Megan Johnson, Drew Johnson, Courtney Rust, Connor Rust; and great granddaughter Stephanie Bos.
Visitation will be held on Sunday, December 8, 2019, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Benson Funeral Home. A private family committal service, with military honors, will be held on Monday, December 9, 2019, at the Worthington Cemetery.
