I was saddened to hear about Russ's passing. Russ and I went to grade school together. He was always a nice guy. He was probably the tallest guy in our class and we played some basketball together in grade school. He was never mean to anybody. I did not know that Russ had passed away until this website was set up. I lost contact with Russ after high school. I will miss not seeing Russ again at our future reunions but I know he will be with his fellow Dragons in spirit. Rest in peace my old friend.
Russ and I hit it off in freshman year. We were both over 6ft tall and really shy. Later on, we were both in our Senior production "Arsenic and Old Lace". Russ was the bad guy. That was great acting, for Russ could never be mean to anyone in reality. Will miss you, my friend.
