Russel Lee England

1947 - 2014

Russel England, son of Katherine and Lloyd England born on March 30, 1947 passed away, Sunday March 30, 2014.

He grew up on the California Bay area cities of Oakland and San Lorenzo. Graduating from Arroyo High School in 1965.

Russ is survived by the love of his life, Sunny Lois England, his wife of 30 years.

Russ successfully assisted in raising 5 children: Robert, Samuel, Laura, Timothy and Jacob. He was a much loved "Papa" of 7 ornery grandchildren: Alex, Spencer, Anna, Nicholas, Zoe, Isabel and Lucas.

Russ served 30 years with the California Highway Patrol from 1970 to 2000, but found true happiness as a retiree at which he excelled.

My father was an avid fisherman, traveler and all around outdoorsman. His skill at cribbage was often bragged about (by himself) and his sense of humor and ability to organize just about anything will be sorely missed.

Please join family for an "Open House" Friday, April 4th at 4p.m. at the family home. Call for information.

So sorry for your loss. Always enjoyed when Russ popped into the ER or when I'd see him on calls. They just don't come any nicer. God bless.
