Professor, you and the show were the absolute best. You all have been missed, but all of my kids grew up watching the reruns, because I loved the show. I still watch it. Thanks for all the good years. R.I.P. until that glorious day comes.
Sincerely

Back in 1990, I met Russell one Wed afternoon on the top deck of the ferry on the way over to Bainbridge from Seattle. We were the only ones up there and after noticing his much older though familiar appearance, I walked over, apologized for bothering him, and asked him if he was the Professor from Gill's Isle, to which he replied "Why indeed I am young man." He asked me to sit down by him and we talked the rest of the way. As a scientist myself (BS's in Zoology/Chemistry/Geology and an MS/PhD in Geochemistry), I told him that he was my inspiration as a child to be so. He was thrilled by that admission, took a keen interest in my environmental cleanup work, had a great smile, a kind voice, looked you right in the eye, and had a strong handshake. Will never ever forget that or him. Thanks for taking that time to talk Russell. You were one in a million! Rest In Peace!
