Bless Russ.  He was determined to keep going as long as he could.  I often saw him at the Samoset Health Club where he was working out. He was always ready with a cheery greeting.  Happy that he could enjoy his later years doing the things he liked.  He was an inspiration.

He was such a kind man.  I shared some time with him at Knox, and he was a gentleman, regardless of his own needs.  I will miss his great smile and my condolences to the family.  God bless you all.
