    I didn’t realize until today that Russ was your nephew. I am so deeply sorry that his time here was so short. I didn’t know him very long, but he was a good guy. My deepest sympathy to you and his family. Pam Brun

  5. I am a co-worker of Russell’s aunt Diane Morrison, you are in my thoughts and prayers. – Always remember the following

    Those we Love remain with us,
    for Love itself lives on.
    Cherished memories never fade,
    because one loved is gone.
    Those we Love can never be,
    more than a thought apart,
    for as long as there’s a memory,
    they will always live on in our heart…

  6. I can’t believe how the years have flown by…the pain in my heart has faded to a dull ache but every memory that I have of you is sharp and seared into my mind. My little fairy child, I will always love you.

  8. I remember when I first met Russ, Always had a welcome to anyone who joined our Teamspeak Online.And always made people laugh. We stayed up late alot of times just talking. During a rough time in my life, He helped more then anyone and helped me pull my family back together. I always wanted to repay him for that. But now this is all that I can do>> He was a hugh loss to so many people online. Everyday I go to the link to pay my respect.

  9. I would first like to thank all of the people who have helped my family through these unbearable last few days.My brother was one of the funniest people I had the pleasure of knowing.I wanted to thank him as well for all the smiles he has left me with and all those great stories and memories of our childhood.You will be missed and know that my heart is broken. Your sis, Laurie.

  10. It has been many years since I last saw or spoke to you but you were always good to me. Steve and I still laugh about how loudly you were snoring the night before my brother’s wedding. We sure enjoyed the stars at 3am! My thoughts are with your family.

  11. It was an honor knowing Russell. I pray that the children will grow strong in the years ahead and leave the mark that Russell has left on so many people in such a short amount of time.



  12. It’s hard to believe that 4 long years have gone by since your passing. I still miss you everyday and wish you were still here. We will meet again one day, I am sure of it. Until then I know you are looking down on all of those you knew and cared about. Til I see you again my friend. Love, Lori

  13. It’s hard to believe that one year has gone by. I think of you every day and remember all the good times we had. You grew to be a special man and touched so many others. You were a Son to be proud of. You are missed by so many and forgotten by none of us. You will always be in my heart and I love you.

  14. Its unbelievable with such a loss as tragic as this Russ wasn’t just my uncle he was like a father to me and my hero, the only hero I ever needed, even though hes gone today he remains in my thoughts and in my prayers and i know he will always be following me making sure I’m not doing anything he wouldn’t do, uncle Russ you were always there for me and I promise that i will be everything you were to me to your kids, and your work will continue in this world. Russ and i had so many memories all good ones thankfully, like ‘OFFICER I HAVE NO CLUE.’ Love ya Uncle R.I.P.

  15. John, Sue, and Family,
    My heart, so strongly goes out to all of you. While I am not as close to each of you, as I would like, I can feel your sorrow, very strongly. I have been there! Russel, while I didn’t know you real well, I do remember some fun times we all had, at the Bingo Hall, a few years back, and you were very thoughtful, kind and considerate, and one to be proud of.Although your journey is coming way to soon, I pray for you and your family, that the journey will be a good one, and we will all see each other again, one day.

  16. Matt, Terri, John, Sue and the whole family: There are no words to express how deeply sorry I am..Russ was a good man, always willing to help someone out. I look around my house and see electrical work he did everywhere.. there are many people who are going to miss him greatly. My deepest sympathies are with you.

  17. More time has gone by and the ache in my heart remains the same. You are so missed by the ones you had contact with everyday and those who were just starting to discover you again.

  19. My beautiful boy angel…Christmas is upon us and you have been gone almost a year. You are missed by so many. You touched everyone you met. I was talking to friends the other day and they were recalling you laughing at their incredibly bad jokes. I remember that day. Those were the dumbests jokes I had ever heard and you thought they were hilarious. I hear the sound of your laughter ringing in my ears. I am blessed to have known you and I am so grateful for the one you sent to me. Rest easy Son. You are forever in my heart and I love you

  21. Russ,
    I just found out about your death today. Even though I haven’t seen you in probably 20 years I want you to know that I have many good memories of us that I will never forget. Bike races, chestnut wars, swimming in the lake, boy scouts… We had a lot of fun. Even when you shot me in the butt with my BB gun! I always looked up to you. Too bad we lost touch all them years ago. Take care… your Edgemere Drive buddy, Tony

  22. Russ~
    On many levels you’re a wonderful example of what a man should be. Your humor, your advice and mostly YOU will be greatly missed by many. Thank you for all the ‘insights’ you gave me over the years. I will never forget & you will never be forgotten.
    May you rest peacefully now my friend.
    ~~ONE FINAL GIFT…by D.H. Cramer~~ Scatter me not to the restless winds
    Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
    Remember now those years gone by
    When loving gifts I gave to thee.
    Remember now the happy times
    The family ties are shared.
    Don’t leave my resting place unmarked
    As though you never cared.
    Deny me not one final gift
    For all who came to see.
    A simple lasting proof that says
    I loved and you loved me. ~~~~~
    (Have a safe journey home Russ)

  29. To someone who was like a father when mine was never around. To someone who showed me many of the things i know today. That someone was and still is you. You physically have left me, matt, your children, sisters, and parents to early. But spiritually u will allways have a place in my heart and will allways be around. We have had many memories. But in my eyes they were not enough.. I will never look at mortal kombat, mustangs, or even matt without thinking of u. But that might not be a bad thing, because the key is not to forget. But to embrace those who have died, and think at every moment what would that person think. i will miss u and because of you i am the man i am today.. And i love you for it.. A MEMORY IS U SCREAMING AT MATT TO STOP SMACKING THE GOBYS ON THE BOAT.. LOL.. LOVE ERIC :’/

  30. wow i just heard the news, i wish i could of made it, its been a long time since we chilled… the pain still is the same. alot was left behind family son and a soon to be wife….take care buddy
    in my prayers

  31. Your Passing Effected More People That You Probably Expected. You Had A Huge Impact On Many Peoples Lives, Whether You Knew Them As Family Or Just Friends. I Just Wanted To Say Thank You For The Memories You Gave Us All.

  32. …I thought that after all this time I could push you to the back of my mind, but I can’t…I miss you and think about you often…you are always in my heart…I love you…
    Mary Ann
