Charles Russell Smith V

Charles Russell  “Rusty” Smith V, 32, of Salisbury was taken back into the Lord’s arms on Friday, July 2nd, 2021. Born on May 12th, 1989 in Salisbury, he was the son of the late Charles Russell Smith IV & the late Michelle Marie Ross.

Rusty lived by his own rules and anyone that knew him understood the bond he and his brother Shawn shared – It was the “Rusty & Shawn Show,” that no one could ever come between. Rusty always told Shawn “my chest is your vest.” He was the big brother that everyone wanted because he would do anything to protect his family and he was loyal to a fault. The only thing that rivaled the love Rusty & Shawn shared is the love Rusty had for his three children.

Rusty is survived by his children, Tiffany Sproul, Charles “Chase” Smith VI, and Jacob Smith; his three brothers, Shawn Smith and his wife, Susan Smith, Phillip King, and Dylan Vaughn; three sisters, Kyndell Lipphard, Sara Vickers, and Aerial Smith; Uncles, Danny Ross and John Smith; great uncles, Melvin Cusick and Al Cusick; three nephews, Shawn Smith Jr., Julian Smith, and Kai Hydes; two nieces, Ellie Rose Smith & Royalty Lipphard. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother Becky Ross, his paternal grandparents Charles Smith III and Patricia Smith, and Gloria Harrison.

Rusty will be greatly missed. A private celebration of life will be held on Friday, July 16th.
