To Russ' family. I was sorry to hear about your father's passing. I remember Russ from kindergarten to 12th grade. I remember our fun walks to St. Stephens together along with Pete, Dave, Virginia, John and the other kids in the neighborhood. He was always fun to be around. My prayers are with you and the family.

Stefanie and Jacque,
Our deepest sympathy to you. We had some good times, and have fond memories of your dad; he was such a wonderful person, and a lot of fun. RIP, Russ.

How very shocked I was to see Russ's obituary. My condolences go out to his entire family. Russ and my beloved Grandpa John Powalisz played poker every week at my grandparents house until God called my Grandpa home again. I remember fondly what a kind man Russ was and a great friend who was loved and respected by my Grandpa. Rest in peace Russ. Now you and my Grandpa can play poker once again as you watch over all of your family and friends here yet on earth.

Stefanie, Jaclyn and your families, I am so very sorry to see that your father passed away. The greatest times we had at the old " Q " with John Barber, especially when we went out of town to do a basketball game. Your dad was such a GREAT guy, damn, too young! So many will miss him, so I pray that you may find some comfort in knowing this. My deepest sympathy to you!

Russ and I had a special relationship while attending PHC. We sat together with Howard Sheehan almost every day, when it was two boys and two girls at every table! We recently reconnected on Facebook and I loved seeing his family and hearing how proud he was of everyone. He went on a date with a good friend of mine in high school and she hit him in the head with a golf club at putt-putt! (by mistake of course). When they reconnected on Facebook, she wondered if he remembered. HOW could anyone forget that night. :) I was so looking forward to seeing him at our class reunion this weekend. He WILL be there but won't need to pay!!! So long Russell!
