Russ was such a big part of our neighborhood...he will be greatly missed. Every spring he brought us a new pin flag, he trimed our tree, plowed our road, helped my husand with the boat dock and was first on the scene of any trouble on Archdale. He was a TRUE friend. I will remember him walking down our alley with Michael and the dogs visiting with the neighbors. We are very sorry for your sudden loss.
