To the entire and extended Russell family, please accept my deepest sympathy. When I was younger and growing up the all of the Conklin Forks kids, Phil was like another father... just a little farther down the road. He always had time for us, always had a smile for us, and always took time to help if we needed it. We trekked all over his land, swam in his creek, went sleigh riding, and later when we had motorcycles, he allowed us to ride anytime. His field was the central football and baseball field for everyone. We even helped mow the lawn. Phil left a legacy for all of us that lived (or live) in Conklin Forks. You will be missed.
