    Growing up, we had many great nights of board games and playing cards at each other’s house;Our moms were sisters.
    I’ll always cherish the breakfast in Clear Lake after the car show. So glad we made time for that.
    God’s peace too all family and friends.

    I worked with Russ at Iowa Ind. Hyd. We became good friends and spent many hours together when we worked at our sister plant in Galion Ohio. We golfed together, went to wine tasting parties and laughed a lot. I had not seen Russ much since we both left IIH but he did stop by my house two years ago for a visit. He will truely be missed. and now is home with God.
