My deepest condolences to the family. May you find comfort
in your treasured memories of Your loved one and May God continue to comfort you in the days, months and years ahead. Psalms 119:76

My love of music since college many years ago has been significantly shaped by Rusty and Poco. We are heartbroken. But what a gift he gave to the world.

Rusty,skills talent's underrated! No ego! The notes and music just flowed with his life on stage, in the studio! The politics of recording industry kept Poco below Star status ,like credence,eagles! Yet the music made it's way for us to appreciate! Thanks for the music, talent's,tunes that dance into our hearts! R I P

Poco played the music of my life.

He has made a very positive impression on my life through his music and his band Poco. The best pedal steel player ever. His death has hurt me as if he were a close friend. He rests in peace, in the heaven of the great!

This is horrible news. Rusty Young may he forever Rest In Peace. Rusty and Poco were such a amazing part of my life. Their music and especially Rusty and his amazing musicianship gave me the desire to learn to play music on my own. His and Poco's music got me through many hurtful times in my life and always lifted my spirits. The many songs he wrote have such deep meaning and are what writing music is all about. He will surely be missed by me and so many others. Thanks for keeping the music...

Thank you for the wonderful music that will be enjoyed forever!!! My condolences to Mary & their children & grandchildren, as well as to all POCO members.

The best is ahead with the Lord!!
Thanks for all your amazing talents you shared with us
We all loved the journey ❤❤
