Rustin James Crystal, 34, passed away on November 3, 2021, in Lehi, UT. He left this earthly life beside the two most influential women in his world. His strong, dedicated mother, Toni, and his beautiful, compassionate, wife Rebecca. Rustin was born on September 9, 1987, in American Fork, Utah, to Kerry and Toni Crystal. He married Rebecca on March 29, 2018, in Lehi, UT. In June of 2018, they welcomed their precious little girl, Imari. She was the light of Rustin's whole world!
Rustin was a serious but fun-loving teddy bear! Some would say he was a bit intimidating at first glance but to all that knew him, he was a loyal, hard-working, and protective person over the people he loved. Rustin loved the outdoors, fishing, collecting geodes, setting off fireworks, and caring for animals. He especially loved his bunnies.
Rustin was a jokester and loved to scare his electrician co-workers with "bang snaps," when they were on the job sites. You would often find him with his earbuds in, enjoying his audiobooks. His favorite collections consisted of H.P. Lovecraft, Brandon Sanderson, and Jim Butcher.
Rustin was a man who was larger than life. He wore many hats as a son, a brother, a husband, a father, and a friend to all creatures and people on earth. An electrician by trade and an angel as God made him. He loved in a way that no other man can match. He walked this earth but not its' slave. He amassed wealth to use it to live in the moment with his friends and family. Every day was an adventure that he prized and cherished, but most importantly, he had a way to share that moment to bring out the best of everyone around him.
