We will miss all the laughter after tournaments and parties.

Russ served our community as a sports official for years and was loved and appreciated by many. He might've had a few disagree with a close call but the resulting smiles and goodwill from his work filled his lifetime quota and that of a dozen others. He cracked me up ... sometimes it was hard to tell if he was pulling your leg or serious. It took me several years to figure out that 95% was the leg. I don't know how he fit in his volunteer Church and Festival work along with his real work as a talented mechanic or fun work as an official but he did. I was caught off-guard by his passing but, after thinking about it, figured he passed the test and was ready for the next adventure. I will be out of town for his remembrance this Saturday at the Field but my heart is there and can picture him with a big smile calling someone out at the plate. Russell made a difference. I will miss him. Kim - Sandpoint Parks and Rec and Friend

Russ is going to be missed in so many places. I'm used to seeing him at church, volleyball, McDuffs, and mostly for years on the diamond. Countless games.Wish we would have had at least one last season with him. He was truly an exemplary man.. I will miss that smirky smile when I made some comment about his ruling on the field. Sad to say, but this time, Blue, you're out. You will be missed by so many! Prayers to the family.

Russell was the best man at our wedding. He was the awesome shortstop of our co-ed softball team. He was the quarterback for our co-ed flag football team. He was a true friend and will be missed by many. RIP Russell.

Mary and I will miss this wonderful guy! Somehow it feels like the light is a little dimmer knowing that Russ is gone. Peace and love to the family.

I feel some of the sadness and void that all the people at First Lutheran are feeling. Russell was a key factor in what made our church feel like a family. He hovered over us all like a hen hovers over her chicks. He took care of every need that arose during worship or saw to it that it was done. He really cared about all of us. I am feeling the emptiness, but I know that Russ is, or soon will be, with his Lord, and with all the saints that have gone before. God is hovering over him now, like a hen hovers over her chicks. Rest In peace, and peace to his family members and all the parishioners at First Lutheran Church. Amen.

Steve and I were so sorry to learn about Russell's passing. What a shock! I knew Russell as one of the Festival's long time volunteers in security. He was dedicated to his position and very passionate about his job. He will be missed!
