It was truly a blessing when Russell came into the family. He gave our beloved Aunt Gladys and Joan’s life a new beginning. They did the same for him. We are all so much better to have known and loved him.

So sorry to hear Russell passed. I thought a lot of him. I worked for a while for Mayor Crocker. Russell always came in and visited with me when he was in the building. I enjoyed our talks. He was a special man. He had been through a lot, seen a lot and had a lot of stories to tail. God bless!

The state part of address wasn’t working: North Carolina

Chris and Peggy, so sorry that I can’t be there. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your father. I loved uncle Russel dearly. Every time I came home to Arkansas we made an effort to see each other while I was there. I cherish the memories of growing up and visiting with Joan, aunt Gladys and uncle Russel. Some of my favorite memories were when we would all go camping at Norfork. Good times with the family.
Kevin and Russel had a mutual respect for each other for serving our country.
God bless you and comfort you and your family during this sad time .
Love Sharon.
