Russ and Muriel have been dear friends to my brother Tom and I. I loved to chat with them when we fished their lake and helped occasionally around the property. Russ was a seriously good soul and entertaining with his stories. He always made us feel comfortable and welcome, and always had a smile on his face. Now I regret not visiting more often for I will miss my friend. He touched Tom and my hearts and will always be remembered in our thoughts and prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Muriel and Family, I want to express my condolences at the death of Russ. He was one super guy here on earth. He will be even more awesome in his new residence in heaven because the Lord will be rewarding him for the meaningful life he lived among us. He will continue being surrounded by music in heaven. He will like that. You are all in my prayers. This week I will offer a Mass in my apartment for him and you. Love, Fr Ralph

What can I saw about a class act who helped so many people in his life and did it with fun and flare! I feel so blessed to have worked with Russ for 10+ years and then reconnected after more than 25 years! Blessed to have had my special day reminiscing with Russ and my granddaughter chatted with Muriel. We walked to the lake and had the best day! Upper Tannery was and Heaven is a better place because of Russ!
