During a shortage of prison workers, his unit was deployed to work at Attica Prison. Russell recently retired from Midland Memorial Hospital after working there more than 30 years and was excited to begin the next chapter of his life traveling and seeing America with his love. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle and outdoor activities like fishing, hunting and camping. Russell never met a stranger and enjoyed spreading joy to every person that he met. Russell was quick to tell a joke and was always looking for a way to make people smile.
