He was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and Waite Park American Legion Post #428. Russell enjoyed woodworking, flying radio control airplanes, gardening, visiting with neighbors, riding his motorized bicycle, playing Rummikub, and spending time and sharing bible stories with his grandchildren. He was an intelligent, dependable, kind and caring man with a strong faith who is now at peace with Jesus.

Survivors include his bride, Jeanne of Sauk Rapids; children, Christopher (Aleen) of Ironwood, MI and Sarah (Andy) Berg of Savage; sister, Roxanne Wrast of Nixa, MO; and grandchildren, Megan, Benjamin, Jacob, Nolan and Wilhelmina.
