We were honored to have known Russ through his community foundation work and in his assistance in creating Youth Advisory Councils (YAC) throughout Michigan and around the world. My husband, Jim, first knew Russ when he visited a family farm to discuss and review the farm's polled Herefords. I knew him during my 23-year tenure as the YAC advisor for the Marshall Community Foundation. As noted in the obituary, his accomplishments were many and exemplary, however, the most winning was his humility and love of the simple things of life. As I remember him saying in so many of his opening remarks, "It was a privilege" for me to have known him.

Karen and Family:
I remember you the most as I was judging demonstrations during State Show and you were a participant. I had been foods-nutrition winner as a 4-H member and met you Dad for the first time when we went to Club Congress in Chicago. He was such a well known man that I felt so special that I would be spending the week with him and the delegates to Congress. He had been and IFYE and that was one of my goals, accomplished in 1969. then after he went to the Kellogg Foundation, I joined the MSU Extension staff, in 4--H . It has been a wonderful career as I am now retired. Meeting your Dad a 4-H foundation meetings and various functions at Kettunen Center was always a a treat.
My thoughts and prayers will be with all of you. God Bless

I have the best memories of the years when my late husband, Mario, had the privilege to work under Russ' leadership while developing the Kellogg sponsored projects in the health professions in Latin America.
Above all we cherished his friendship and the very pleasant visits to his family at the farm.
My condolences to Lou Ann and to the members of the Mawby family.
