Resident of San Jose
Russ, aged 77, passed away on Nov 2. He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Cheryl; their son Ted and daughter Carla Bohnett; their grandchildren Anna Harden, James Bohnett and Tori Bohnett.
Born in Nevada City, he was a graduate of Turlock High School and UC Berkeley. Russ enjoyed a 30-year teaching career in the Campbell Union High School District.
Russ will be missed around Bay Area golf courses and fondly remembered for swearing at the TV during 49er and Cal Bear football games. He will also be remembered for his political activism including his service as a past president of the Santa Clara County Democratic Club (2004). He was proud of the 70+ letters of his that were published in this newspaper.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to K.I.N.D., Kids in Need of Desks through UNICEF.
