Predeceased by his partner, Charles Goggans and his parents, Russ is survived by a sister, Kerry Mello, and his brother, Bill Eigard. He is also survived by a large circle of loving friends who found enormous pleasure in sharing long conversations, unending laughter and his passionate, and sometimes passing commitments.
