I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to the Peter family. I recently called Russ to catch up, and became informed about this tragedy.
I worked with Russ as a member of product teams back at Maytag and also on Jenn-Air at Whirlpool. It was so refreshing to work with such a genuine, and all around good person. Russ always did his best to help me and to keep me informed, (I worked in Toronto). Russ was Russ and did not put on any 'airs'. When I was in career transition he went well out of his way to help me. You must be proud to have had such a great father and husband. He left a lasting impression on me.
