Rusty was born October 14, 1989 in Tecumseh, Oklahoma to Russell Wade Bolen and Teresa Kathleen (Pierce) Watters.  He graduated from Sasakwa High School, and he worked as a Roustabout.  He was also the co-owner and operator for Bolen Energy.  He went to bondsman school and automotive vo-tech.  Rusty grew up on South Canadian River, and he loved riding on the river, fishing, hunting, and trapping turtles.  He could fix anything, and he loved to grow a garden and to cook.  He married Kelsey Colene Morris on October 18, 2022 in Konawa.  Rusty was a father, husband, friend, brother, and a son. He asked for very little, but gave so very much. He was pure gold with a magnetic personality, and “to know him is to love him”.

He is survived by his wife, Kelsey Bolen of the home; his parents; three sons, Kyle-14, Cash-10, and Ryatt-3, all of Konawa; three daughters, Ember-7, Reagan-5, and Delilah-7 months, also all of Konawa; and two brothers, Wayne Bolen, and Deaton Bolen, both of Konawa.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Raymond Pierce and Lucretia Kay Thompson; and great grandparents, James Clifford Pierce and Audra Aurora Pierce.
