Nancy and Suzanne,
Even at a time of such unexpected sadness, love and memories endure
and they will stay with you always. Russ was a wonderful colleague,
enjoyed working with him on his International assignments with ED&C.
His friendship and upbeat personality are hard to duplicate.
He will surely be missed and our sincere thoughts are with you.

So sad to hear of Russ' passing. I have great memories of him as a client, a boss, a co-worker and friend. He was always kind hearted and thoughtful in all his actions and words. He could be tough, but always fair.

Dear Nancy,

Donna and are deeply saddened to hear of Russ’ passing. Working with him at AT&T and Lucent was pure pleasure. He was not only excellent at his job, he was an outstanding person. Russ always willingly offered his help and treated everyone with utmost respect.

I will keep my fondest memories of him and always remember his smile and sense of humor.

Brian and Vall Magory asked me to send their condolences. They are boarding an airplane for Europe.
