Russ was a good friend and neighbour for many years. We raised many a glass of cheer together. He will be missed.

We regret that we did not learn about Russ's death in time to be able to share the memorial service. We felt privileged to know Russ and to learn about his life's journey and many accomplishments. We have such good memories of tales told, laughs shared during our time at NW1. Our sincerest condolences to Helen and family.
My heartfelt condolences go to Russ's family. You were all so amazingly "there" for him during his final journey. Russ' obituary is eloquent and truly captures the essence of that great man.
I could fill a book trying to express what Russ' friendship meant to me, to know him was to love him.
I'm sure that Russ and Don are having a wonderful visit, with Don hoping that Russell remembered to bring the cigars!
Love to Russ' family,
Had a lot of good laughs with Russ while working with him for a number of years. He was a great man and served his country well. Thanks for being a part of my life Russ. He touched a lot of people. I know your family is very proud of you and will miss you very much.
Dad you will be missed very much, jim and pat. We both loved you dearly and you were the best father, role model for a son could ever ask for.
