  1. Russ and Millie were great neighbors to us at Cedarbrook Court and they were missed when they moved. I enjoyed playing golf with Russ and seeing him drive up and down the road. He was always on the go. Our deepest sympathy to the family at this time of your lost.

    So Very Sorry to learn of Russ’ passing. He was a great Golf partner. Russ and I teamed up for a few years playing in the Arthritis Foundation Fund raiser Golf event. Recently I cleaned up my office and found several annual team pictures with Russ and I and our other golf teammates. They will provide happy memories, and I will cherish them!! Our thoughts and prayers…. Mike Rawls

  3. We are so sorry to read of Russ passing.He was an energetic senior citizen,loved his work and hockey, was fun to visit with, enjoyed traveling and supporting his favorite “Town” in Michigan. Russ was a natural when it came to Master of Ceremonies. It was breathtaking watching him dance with his sweet wife. He and Millie were well loved neighbors. God be with you all and give you peace at this time. Kraig and Janet Clay

  4. I was so sorry to read of Russ’ passing. Russ and I had a shared love of hockey. He and Millie and I were billets all the way back to the early Bellingham Blazer days and during the Ice Hawk days. We played hockey together in the men’s league for several years. I loved to hear tales of his times playing in the Snoopy Tournament put on by Charles Schultz in California. We will all dearly miss Russ and I wish him love, peace, and a great sheet of ice for his new beginning. For his family,my wishes for peace and blessings.
