This is very late, but I just learned that Russ lost his battle with cancer last year. Russ was a one of the funniest guys I ever worked with, always looked forward to meetings that I knew he would be at. Terri and I send our belated sympathies.

So sorry for your loss. I didn't get to know Russell as well as some of the other cousins, but what I do remember of him was that he was a very special man with a great sense of humor and a heart full of love for his family.

So cleaver, that snide smile and the most awesome wit, it did not get any better in any being. A great mentor to more than we know. When he walked into any room his aura was contagious. You will be missed. Until we meet again, God Speed Russ.

When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure. So glad I got to call you my uncle.

There have been too many good men and women lost from our class already and Russ was truly a "self made man". He carried the work ethic of his upbringing with him wherever he went. He will be missed by so many.
