Our deepest sympathy to all of the family and especially Mary Jane. Russ was a great, wonderful man and doctor. We will miss him deeply. May God bless each of you in your sorrow. All our love and prayers.
Dad was a great man who cared for his family, his patients and served his country. He made all those he communicated with smile. He was a charmer! He got a kick out of all his caretakers in the hospital telling him how much he looked like Ronald Reagan. I will miss him more than I can put in to words. I send my love to him in heaven where he will be loved by all. He will be in my heart for the rest of my life.
So sorry for your loss. My dad, Elmer Lamparter, owned Lamparter's Market on Grand River in Det. The store was on the block just before your dad's clinic. During a holiday dinner, when I was just learning to walk, I pulled up on a table and a lamp fell over on me slicing my head open. My dad called Dr Bolton and he left your family to stitch my head. I am now 63 and still thankful for his kindness. My dad died in 89 and only had great things to say about your dad. Grace Falko, Plymouth, MI
Russ was a great friend that will be very much missed. We had many great times in Florida and Michigan. Love and prayers to Mary Jane and family.
