Larry and I will always remember Russell as a kind, friendly and generous man. His sweet smile and loving eyes will be missed by everyone who knew him. Larry worked with him at GPC and we had the privilege of attending church with him and his wife years ago. God bless your memories and your sorrows.

Deloris, Pam, Norman and extended family. I am so sorry to hear of Russell's passing. He always had a warm smile and funny comment whenever we ran into each other. Take comfort in knowing he is in a much better place with no worries or pain. I have no doubt he, my mom and dad are chatting it up and enjoying each others company again. Hold on to the memories, they will help you on. Love to all, Kathy(Johnson) Daniels
