Perfect picture – Russell always a friendly smile and warm welcome. A wonderful man who dearly loved his wife, kids and grandkids. We enjoyed the good times together and I was always impressed by his desire to help folks – which was much appreciated after the tornado when we stayed in Rodney and Cheri’s RV parked in Russell and Margie’s driveway. Together we shared prayers, meals, debris cleanup, and tales of the young boys. He will always be fondly remembered. Prayers for Russ and Rodney; Cheri, Abby, and Ryan; as well as the rest of the family and friends. Peace my friend.
