Russ, you started as my leader and finished as my friend. You taught me a lot about being a Section Chief, about being a leader, and about life! I am truly a better individual because of the time and effort that you devoted to all of us! Please know you live in all of our hearts every day. Lanie, you and your family are in our hearts and prayers. Russ, get that camp ready for us, we will join you there someday and listen to each others stories once again. Until then, we will miss you.

I have known Russ and Lanie for many years. Met at Camp Read and got to love them both. I was in the USA in 2014 and was blessed to saty with Lanie and to see Russ a number of times and then again in 2016. A truly wonderful and selfless friend. All the memories will live on for Lanie and family and all of us who were blessed with Russ as our friend.

A wonderful Scouter and a gentleman. Bl ssedvto have known him.

On behalf of Troop 123 I want to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Lanie and the rest of the family. Know that Russ has had a tremendous positive impact through his generosity of time and spirit in Scouting. That spirit lives on in the hearts of the thousands of boys and men in the Manchester area who have participated in Scouting through Troop 123 and Troop 47, or in activities at Camp Johnson.
