Dear Laura. We are very sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  Russ was a good friend and co-worker at Alcoa.  We had many conversations when we worked together at Alcoa.  A few of them were controversial discussions; but, always ended on a happy note.  In fact, we always agreed that many of those discussions were therapeutic. He was a loyal employee and could always be counted on giving his best effort on the job.  He loved his hunting trips. That was a favorite topic of our discussions at work. I am thankful to have had Russ as a good friend.  He will be missed.

Russ was a regular member of our literary travelers book group at the Lititz Library for many years. He always had a kind word for me; I remember him as a warm and gentle man. He faithfully read and commented on each book every month, no matter how strange he thought some of the book selections! He will be greatly missed, and my condolences to his family. So sorry for your loss.
