    The world just lost one Great Guy! I never met a nicer guy, who was always willing to help out anyway he could. He helped me and my parents greatly. He became Grandpa Russ to my nephew and a good friend to me. I sure will miss sharing a cold beer with you Russ. Rest In Peace Buddy!

    Carolyn, we are so sorry for your loss. Russ, was such as great man. I so remember he and Dad picking me up at Mizzou on their way back from hunting trips, or all those pennies he gave me for my wedding gift. He had such a fun sense of humor and always had that twinkle in his eyes when he was teasing. I know I speak for my mom, Odie, as well when I say heaven has gained an angel. I know Dad will be welcoming him.
