Russ was a wonderful man, father and husband to my dear cousin Sharon. Our home was on the other side of the country, so my wife Kim and I had few opportunities to spend time with him. The short time we did have with him was priceless. Russ was kind, thoughtful and generous to us, so we will miss him forever. We will NEVER forget the special trip to camp with him and Sharon, the fire pit at night under a million stars and all the laughs we shared. Now he is in Heaven with our Lord amongst the stars and we look forward to sharing Heaven with him when our Lord calls us home. We love you, Russ and you are in our hearts forever.  ❤️

Rus was a great neighbor and friend. Sharon and were neighbors for 24 years and treated us like family. We. Enjoyed m any of their family dinners and the food was always great.
Rus was like a second father to my son Jake.  Rus taught him fishing, camping, tree work, mechanics, and so much more. Being a city slicker, I did not know much.
So Rus, you will al ways be in our  hearts.
Sharon and AJ, if we can be of any help, please call on us.

My sympathy to his family. Russell was a nice guy who gave me a beagle puppy named Brutus.
