I am extremely sorry to hear of Russ’ passing. I haven’t seen him in years. As we all know during high school and after people go ther seperate ways and loose sight of those friends that meant so much to us. Friends that have helped mold us into the adults we are now. I will always remember Russ laughing and playing tag with us in Elementary School. Always the biggest sweetheart. Middle school I will never forget this quiet kid who never spoke much all of sudden got the nerve to just say what he wanted and thought at that moment. I swear we laughed for hours at his jokes and silly disobedient behavior. I remember being in science and Mr Stendahl getting upset with us cause we wouldn’t pay attention to the movie about some science nonsense. Russ would just say “ya know man I’m not going to be a scientist one day so this doesn’t really affect me” needless to say he was asked to leave. I remember summer day’s meeting up with him, the Johnson brothers, Curtis’, Vandermay’s, Killians and who ever else was available to play good ole football. Granted as a girl I couldn’t play as well but kept score cause the boys always argued about who was winning. Or meeting to go sledding at Louman’s Hill. I can hear him know “Mandi watch out for the tree” crack it hits you upside the head and he falls to the ground laughing. It warms my heart that Russ found you and together have 4 amazing children. I wish I would have ran into him in these recent years to catch up. He truely will be missed and loved by all forever.
