I moved to St. Paul in 1981. Russ was one of the first people I met. I remember he showed me around St. Paul. He was very nice to me and I'm sorry to hear of his passing. We just lost touch and it's been many, many years now. I just googled him to try to find him and was shocked, to say the least. I'm very sorry for your loss.

I worked with your Dad at the State so many years ago. He was a good friend and a very hard co-worker. We laughed a lot back then, even when the work load was very demanding, he will be missed.

I worked with Russ at the State.

He was a good guy.

At the service this morning you went around and gave everyone there a hug and made us all feel welcome.

Your words about your Dad were very touching.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I worked with Russ many years ago at the Dept of Jobs and Training, at least when it was named that. We played together on a Coed softball team and I remember Russ as always being one of the big hitters. My favorite memory of Russ is that one year our team was not playing very well. One of the men brought a video camera to the game. Player after player seemed to hit the ball but was either thrown out or the ball was caught. Then it was Russ's turn. I still remember Russ hitting the ball and...

Dear Leyna and Scott and family, I am very sorry for your loss. I remember how happy your dad would be when he spent time with you on the weekends. He loved you so very much. He had a big heart. May he rest in peace.

My heart is very sad but also very blessed in a way. I am not certain of the types of relationships others have in their lives, but Russ was my true genuine friend. I have a tendency in my relationships to "pause for the cause" and ponder at times if I should do-say- something- how something should be said- should it wait til later, etc. My relationship with Russ was on a different level, pure and simple and always straight from the hip or the heart. - I without pause could tell him...
