So sorry to hear of your loss. I graduated with Russ from CVHS and always thought he was such a nice guy. Saw him a few years ago at an alumni and it he hadn't change a bit.

Although I didn't get to see you that often , it was a pleasure when I did. I enjoyed talking cars with you. You certainly will be missed by all. Your brother Carl & The gang will sure miss your presence at the annual James Dean car show. I'm sure you'll meet alot of car enthusiasts in Heaven.
