Russ always brought a smile to my face with his jokes and kind nature. He will be dearly missed. Condolences to his family and friends.

Mr. Purdie was one of the greatest teaching influences that I had. I enjoyed the years that he taught Social Studies and US History. We became very close when I began my brief teaching career. When my grandfather passed away my family gave him all of my grandfathers civil war book collection. Mr. Purdie has had a very important impact on my life. He will always be remembered by myself and my family. I can't put into words the affect he had in my life. My deepest condolences to his family.

A man, large in life with a gentle touch whose Faith gave him the Proper Order. Russ's love of History recognized the rewards of Sacrifice. His Scottish gave him Pride and Confidence. His Family gave him Comfort and Accomplishment. Well done, Russ.
