Russell J. Muir Obituary
November 19, 1930 - November 6, 2015 Russell J. Muir (Rusty), 84, most recently of Northridge, and long-time resident of the Hollywood Hills and Hancock Park, passed away on Friday, November 6, 2015. He was born in Manhattan, New York and moved to California in 1971. Rusty leaves 5 children born to his first wife Mary and was stepfather to two with his second wife Joanne. Their shared passion for travel took them to over 50 countries during their 36 year marriage. Rusty retired at age 67 after 40 years rising in the ranks to executive capacity with Ivy Hill Corporation. He is survived by his wife Joanne, sibling Ora Schepps of New York, and children Michael (Charlene), Gary (Karen), Brian (Smita), Mark (Diana), and Lori (Vickie) as well as step-children Traci Foyster (Brian) of Nashville, TN, and Michael Grant (Julie) of Huntington Beach, CA. Additional family who grieve his passing are grandchildren Michael, Dani, Stephanie, Shannon, Kristin, Jacob, Christopher, Brandy, and Dylan. A Memorial Celebration of Life will take place on Thursday, November 19, at the Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills in the Old North Church at noon sharp. To honor Rusty's deeply felt concern about feeding the poor, in lieu of flowers, please donate to any charity that embraces that mission.
