I am sorry to read of the passing of Russ. I served my entire apprenticeship with Principal Heating in the 80's. Russ was a true gentleman and he always greeted us guys in the field or in the shop with a smile and extended hand. I recall Russ asking me at an apprentice dinner where I saw myself in a few years. Kidding I said "I want your job!". Russ laughed. Today I am a General Manager with sheet metal company. I know Russ was one of the key people that provided me with the opportunities to learn the business and he inspired me when I was a young man starting out in the business. Thank-you Mr. Walker.

My condolences to the Walker family.

I will always remember Uncle Russ for his great sense of humour, his glowing smile, his laughter, and going to "Bobcaygeom" for fish and chips. We love you Uncle Russ.
