Rusty Lusk 

It is with sadness that we bring news of the death of Rusty Lusk, who many AAHN members remember. Rusty was frequently in attendance at the annual conference, served an essential role on the finance committee of AAHN, and was also the husband of past-president and long-time member, Brigid Lusk.  He is remembered by one of our members as a person who was “soft spoken, curious, creative, with a good sense of humor”. I remember him as helpful, friendly, and welcoming and looked forward to seeing him at each conference.

We were recently informed of his passing after a lengthy illness.  While a memorial service will be held later in the summer, his obituary is included 

Donations can be made in Rusty’s name to the West Suburban Humane Society at

AAHN is indebted to Rusty and Brigid Lusk for their service and their support through the years. Please remember and celebrate the life of Rusty. If you would like to send a card to Brigid and need her address, please let me know and I will forward it to you.
