Our family moved to Martinsville in 1984 with our young family and Russell was there our first day to help with others in the church to help us move in. He and his family were always there to help and support us, especially when our boys received their Eagle Scout awards. He lived a Christ like life and a blessing and an example to each of us.

We were members of the Martinsville branch from 1997-2001. My little girls nicknamed Brother Shockley, “Brother Gum” because he always had a stick of gum for them. I remember he was always so kind and helpful. One time my daughter, Sarah, lost an earring down the vent at the church. Brother Shockley promptly removed his white Sunday shirt and put his arm down the vent and retrieved it, much to her delight. He just couldn’t take the big crocodile tears! When it was time for us to move away, he was there, ready and anxious to help us. My husband, Howard, had a beautifully carved walking stick that he gave to him to express our gratitude for his kindness. He was a wonderful man.

Russell and Clovie have known me my whole life. Russell, whether he knew it or not, was certainly a great role model for me. I have loved him all of my life and, although I saw him little in many years, I will miss him. The world lost a good one. Condolences to all of the family.
