Memories Timeline


  1. Russell was a real joy to work with. His attitude and sense of humor made work fun. He was honest and forthright. The residents really liked him. He will be truly missed.

  2. Russell was always a wonderful cousin and destined to be in the medical field. I remember Russell, Vicky and I would play hospital when we were very young. Vicky would be the doctor and Russell would be the patient. He would allow us to perform surgery after surgery on him never once complaining. Seems like it was just yesterday. Russ, You will always in my heart. Love ya – Debbie

  3. Terri & Family,
    I was so shocked when you called to let me know that Russell was in the hospital. I really got to know him better than just as a neighbor, when we worked together at the dialysis center. He talked about you, his family and your plans for the house. Please know that I will help you in any way possible. When it warms up again, you, me & Grannie will restart our jaunts again! Love ya! Freda. Steve sends you his regards and sympathy also!

  4. Russell and I worked together @ Courtyard. He was a super nice guy, and a good nurse. We ate lunch together quite often, and he always talked so fondly of his dogs, and wife. I will miss him.

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss. I just found out today about Russ’ passing. We worked together at CarePartners on the weekends. I missed him after he left and I really regret that we didn’t keep in touch. Teri, he spoke of you often—-I could tell he loved you dearly.

  6. I am so sad to hear about Russ passing away. I have missed him so much since he left CarePartners. I sat next to him at an educational event last spring, and he seemed so very happy with his job at Courtyard. I am very sorry for your loss and hope that you can find comfort in your family and friends. I will pray for you and your family.

  7. We are deeply saddened by this news. Russell was a kind and thoughtful man. His friends here in the Tallahassee area feel blessed to have had the opportunity to share his life and music. We spent many a happy time with Russell, playing music and swapping stories out here in the piney woods of North Florida. We are so sorry for your loss.

  8. So very sad to hear that this very nice man and nursing friend has passed away. Russ and I worked weekends together at CarePartners, and I could always count on him to give sound advice and be an excellent clinical resource. He often spoke of his love for his wife and the plans for his house. I will miss him.

  9. I just found out that Russ passed away. It seems like yesturday, when we were kids, living on Diehl street in Michigan, playing kick ball & baseball in the street.
    This is very sad news. I send my condolences to all of his family.
