A man with a large personality, Mr. Rutledge will be remembered for his cooking skills, and sharing time with family and friends. He always enjoyed his trips to the beach and would do anything for a Whataburger and Starbucks.
Those left to cherish his memories include three brothers, Terry Potts (Cindy), Doug Rutledge (Christy) both of Etta and Brandon Rutledge of Tupelo, a host of nieces and nephews and his special canine companion "Arrowhead".
Along with his parents, he is also preceded in death by his life partner, Paul.
