Russ was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed. I have many fond memories of our family spending time together, watching him and my dad rope at the rodeo and camping trips just to name a couple. I don't know if I ever thanked him for his willingness to step in a be my "fill-in" dad for father and daughter dinners every other year when I was in Blue Birds/Camp Fire (Thank you Russ- it meant a lot!) I will forever remember his laugh and I can see his wonderful smile know when he walked through the gates of Heaven and saw his beautiful daughter once again. My thoughts, prayers and love to Nona and the family.

Oh I am so sorry to hear this news! Such a kind man with a wonderful smile. He lit up my day every time he dropped off the water payment at City Hall. My heart is broken and yet, rejoicing for he is certainly in the presence of Jesus. Your family is in my prayers.

Russell was in the room with my husband and he told me they were getting along great. Jack was so upset when Russell was taken to ICU . He was saddened to see he had passed. We are sorry for your loss.
