My prayers go to the Walpole family and friends. Russ always made me at ease with any dealings or questions of work with his chill temperament.

I can't think of anyone I'd rather watch a good western with than Russ. He showed me how to properly make popcorn on the stove - and also that you should NEVER throw the extra away, because he loved to enjoy it on day two. Russ also explained to me why you never use soap on a cast iron pan, and a million other little useful bits of knowledge.
My favorite memory of Russ would be when he took my (then) 3 year old by the hand and paraded her around a party, asking other guests to give her pennies to toss into a wishing well, walking her to the well and listening to her little toddler wishes, which he announced for all the guests to hear. She was delighted by him, and I always was too.
