I rejoice with you, Russ that you are now with our Lord, dear brother, however losing you here on earth is a great loss to me. Life here on earth was not easy on us at times, but God always carried us through and blessed us in many ways, and as I look back, I am grateful, because He used those difficult times to mold us and to be the caring, kind, loving, understanding, and thoughtful person you turned out to be. It is my privilege to have been your "Big Sister". I will miss you sorely and look forward to when I will be seeing you again in Heaven with our Lord. Until then, I guess God's not finished with me yet...I must be a harder nut to crack in order for me to be there with you and Joanne. I know He must be so proud of you! Love you always... XO Patty

Our deepest sympathy to Kim, Shayla and Seth. We love you and are praying for you.

God has richly blessed our family through a great friendship with Kim &Russ. Some of our fondest memories are shared with them. Russell was always eager to talk about the things of God and pray for a need, we will miss that. He always greeted us and said goodbye with "Bless them Lord" while hugging us, we will miss that. He always brought us a loaf of his homemade bread when they visited, we will definitely miss that! There is so much about Russ that we will miss....his laugh at the end of a good joke, his giving nature, his real concern for something you are going through and his compassion to want to help, but one thing about our dear friend we will always remember is the Blessing he was.
Love you Brother

I met him in the Bruce Carter VA. Medical Center. I met his wife as well. Both very nice people. I remember watching him walk around the SICU. I cheered him on. I know he is not in anymore pain. God Speed Brother.

You know, to spend time with Russ, was to laugh. Laugh a lot! I am blessed to have many memories with Russ, so I was privileged to laugh a bunch. You know though, we cried a bit too. One particular time was when we were talking about some of his life experiences, Vietnam in particular. He commented how he wanted to see that land from a much different perspective, one where there wasn’t any fighting. Well, we just happened to have access to some travel videos of Vietnam. Russ was all about watching those videos of that beautiful land. We sat together, and he cried, seeing that land from a different perch. Honestly, it was a spiritual experience for us. And through the tears, to see Russ’ infectious smile...priceless! Love you brother. And love you too Kim!

Always enjoyed serving with Russ in the Passion play at Crossroads Community Cathedral in East Hartford. His good humor and kindness always shone through. While the cast would be lined up in the hall I can clearly remember Russ yelling "make a hole!" in his booming voice so the make up team could get through..

May the Lord comfort you in the days ahead.. I look forward to seeing him again in glory.

I think my fondest memory of Russ when I made that huge strawberry shortcake and he said it was his favorite along with his first day on the beach and in the ocean after not having been in a long time. A precious memory etched forever in my heart. We shall surely miss him and I know he is making that manna in heaven already❤️ Love and prayers Kim
