Over the last two and a half years I have gotten the privilege to know Russ, he was always thinking of others . He would do anything for anyone and that showed each and everyday. The world is a sadder place today as he’s not here with us. But we all have fond memories with him, ones we can hold on to and cherish. Thinking of you all at this very difficult time.

Marilyn and family, I was so sad to hear of Russell’s passing. My heart goes out to all of you. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to see him last summer when I was home. Russell was a great guy and always had a great sense of humor.That’s what I remember most about him. And you always knew Russ was around because you heard him lol. He will be sadly missed. May he fly with the angels now and his soul be forever at peace xo

I was there and got to spend the last few hours with him. I would have lost that had it not been for Russ. Picking me up.
