Phyllis: I was shocked and deeply saddened to see of Russell's death. I never met him that I remember, but my brother still talks about the wonderful pop corn that he raised and I brought him some on our trip home. He asks me every once in a while if I have any way of getting it again.

I will keep you and your family in prayer at your time of sorrow. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

A fellow medical transcriptionist and friend,

Steve and I met Russ through the Missouri Bluebird Society. Russ was never shy about sharing the knowledge he gained by his many years of birding and was adamant about Bluebird conservation. We always looked forward to the items Russ brought to our annual conference as he was very creative using recycled materials. Russ was quite the character and will be sorely missed.

I only had the privilege to know Russ for ten years. He was a man dedicated to many projects and it was his dedication to helping Bluebirds where we crossed paths. His passion for Bluebirds was contagious and his energy was unbelievable. He will be missed in the Missouri Bluebird Society but not forgotten. In 2014 it was my honor to award Russ the Bluebird Conservation Award for his years of dedication in helping and promoting Bluebirds. He did not slow down after receiving the award either; both in 2015 and 2016, he handmade multiple items to be auctioned off during our annual fundraiser. Yes Russ will be fondly remembered. Countless people learned from Russ how they too could help Bluebirds.

Condolences to Russ's family. We met Russ at the Bluebird Society gatherings. He was always willing to let you know what he knew, on almost any subject :) He was very passionate on doing the right thing, and we will sorely miss him.
Rest in peace Russ, and we'll meet again someday!
