In 1967 Rust married Cheryl Lynn Bradley of Petersburg, Illinois. After graduating college, the two remained in Florida for a time. There they recorded two sides for Charles Fuller Productions of Tampa as Lee & Cheryl. Despite the fake RCA matrix # on the label which suggests an earlier date, this single was most likely recorded and released in 1968.
By the summer of 1969, Lee, Cheryl and their daughter Jeniffer Lynn had moved back to the Springfield area where Rust took a job working for S.A. Barker Co., one of Springfield’s best-known women’s clothing stores.
As for his musical career, there is no evidence that Lee Rust ever recorded again.
