Russell H. “Rusty” Shaffer, 39, of Fairmont, WV, gained his angel wings on March 19, 2022. Rusty went to heaven surrounded by his guardian/mom, Sally Nestor, and his very best friend Bob Bob/Bobbie Toothman.

Rusty was born on October 19, 1982, in Harrison County, WV, and was raised for 17 years by his brother-in-law, Cecil Swiger. Rusty has resided in the ResCare Group homes for 17 plus years.

Rusty was loved by the ResCare staff and his housemates. Anyone who knew Rusty knew that Barney was his favorite thing in this whole world. Rusty was a very loving soul and put smiles on everyone’s faces. He was one of God’s special people and was deeply loved and will be sadly missed.

Rusty’s family would like to thank WVU Hospice and the United Hospital Center nursing staff for caring for their dear special boy in his final days.
