Joe Arthur Trusty
~ June 5, 1946 ~ November 4, 2017 ~

 Joe Arthur Trusty, 71, passed away November 4, 2017 in Rapid City. Services are scheduled for 1:00 pm on Thursday, November 9, 2017 at Black Hills Funeral Home. Inurnment will follow at 2:00 pm at Black Hills National Cemetery. Military honors will be provided.

Joe and his family supported Oahe Speedway from the beginning.  He loved his Blue Oval and was always one of the first in line for his class calls and ready to race.  Joe and Rhonda had their favorite pit spot, just north of the bathouse, in the middle of the pits.  The staff at Oahe speedway always knew that Rhonda had checked out the bathouse and it was, for sure, picked up and cleaned for the race weekend. 

Please keep the Trusty family in your prayers.
