Russell was a good friend of ours for many years! In fact, he was a friend to many. We will miss his kindness and concern for our family and others. Our love and sympathy to all the family.
May his soul rest in peace. Condolences to the family.
My deepest condolences to the family. May he Rest In Peace.
We were saddened to hear of Russell's passing but rejoicing that he is reunited with his sweet wife, Ann. The Lynch family blessed us in ways we can't even describe after we became their neighbors in Maywood Manor in 1974. Russell and Ann were such examples of Godly parents. We continue to pray for you, Rusty, Steve, Lisa, Lorie, and Julie. Boyce and Pat Rorie, Mountain Home, AR
