Obituary for Dusty Rhodes published by Tampa Bay Tribune

The obituary for Dusty Rhodes was published by the Tampa Bay Tribune today, Sunday, June 14. Rhodes unexpectedly passed away earlier this week after spending a night in hospital. No cause of death has been released yet although his daughter-in-law Brandi – Cody’s wife – said in a post on Instagram that he passed away from natural causes following a brief battle with an illness.

The obituary reads: “RUNNELS, Virgil, Jr. (aka Dusty Rhodes), left this Earth on June 11, 2015. He was surrounded by his four children and his loving and devoted wife. He was preceded in death by parents, Virgil Runnels, Sr., Katherine Trefell and step-father, Mike Trefell. Dusty is survived by his wife, Michelle Rubio Runnels; children, Dustin (Tarel), Kristin Ditto (Don), Teil Gergel (Kevin), and Cody (Brandi); grand-children, Dakota Runnels, Dalton and Dylan Ditto, and Maris and Kellan Gergel. Also survived by brother, Larry (Denay) of Louisville, CO; and sister, Connie Jones (Gary) of Pensacola, FL. Dusty and Michelle spent 37 years of devoted marital bliss. He was the ultimate provider and a legend for all the right reasons. The family would like to extend its deepest gratitude to Dr. Joe Chiaramonte and Brandon Health Management for their loving care and support.”
