    Pam Jakobsen Michelle’s aunt. I was shocked to hear of Russ’s passing and immediatly thought of his girls. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, I know how hard this time can be. Russ was a quiet one forsure but he sure had a big smile on his when you’d talk with him.

    Shocked and devastated to hear of Russell's passing.  We were best friends growing up in the neighborhood and remained good friends over the years.  I will miss him greatly.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Lee, Julie and Eldon.  -Chris

    I was saddened to hear about Russ' passing.  I've been praying for his family.  He was always a pleasure to be around.  I'm glad I spent some time with him at his daughters graduation celebration this summer.  God Bless Us All, Big Michelle
