I got to know Russ as his Pharmacist at Ford Pharmacy. He was one of my favorite clients. We had many long discussions about anything and everything, but especially the Wisconsin Badgers. Even after Ford Pharmacy closed, Russ would stop by the Pharmacy counter of my new employer. We continued our visits and our friendship. He was a fine man and will be missed, but I'm sure he is smiling down from heaven. My deepest sympathies to Edna and the entire family.

I am an Extension Specialist who arrived after Russell retired, so I did not get a chance to meet and work with him. Based on his obituary, it's clear that he lived a wonderful life of giving to his country, his state, and his family. My condolences to his family as they celebrate a life well lived.

Edna and family: My deepest sympathy to you and your children and their families. As you recall Russ and I started work in Outagamie Co. the same year. So I watched your children over the years. You and Russ were always very special. We will hold your family in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless Russ's memory and all his accomplishments. Lou and Nyla

Edna Kay and I share in your loss. Our prayers are with you and your family. I sure enjoyed working with Russ when I was Governor and he was our secretary. He sure kept us on the right track. Kiwanis will miss a great one. We hope to be there Friday. Dale & Kay Vannes 90-91

Dear Edna and Family, Russ was a passionate advocate for many projects -- Parenting the First Year Newsletters was one of his pet projects-- that I know Edna assisted with as well. He was friend of many and touched many lives in his Extension career and volunteer efforts.. Thinking of you as you celebrate all that has been accomplished over his life time. Karen Dickrell

Dear Edna and family, It was with great sorrow that we heard about the loss of Russell. He was such a gift to us and a good friend through Kiwanis. We have so many fond memories of both of you and it is hard to believe he is no longer with us. He always had that sparkle in his eyes that let you know he cared and would help at the drop of a hat if it was at all possible. Because of an appointment for Jack at the cancer center on the 3rd, we will be unable to join you to celebrate his life. He was a special man! We are praying for all of you.
