Rug was born in Kansas City, Mo on May 27, 1962 to Ed and Ruth Yewell. He enjoyed his work as a demolition man and bartender. He never met a stranger. Rug was truly unique and one of a kind.

Survivors include his wife Susan Shortino and family, Dog Lady, Mother Ruth Yewell, Sisters; Carla, Denise, Lisa, brother Mike, and many nieces, nephews, aunts uncles and cousins. Rug was preceded in death by his father Ed Yewell, grandma and grandpa Swope, grandma Yewell, sister Lori Yewell and Cousin Randy Rue. There will be a private burial at Wayside at a later date.
