    My most heartfelt condolences to Russell’s family, I had the pleasure of being one of his dialysis nurses from January to last week. We always enjoyed joking together and he enjoyed teasing us during his treatments. He will be missed.

    I had the great pleasure of providing veterinary services to Russ and Kenny’s farm from the time I graduated from veterinary school until Russ and Kenny retired from dairy farming. I treasured the privilege and have nothing but fond memories.
    Their dairy farm was expertly managed and ALWAYS very clean and well maintained. You definitely would have no difficulty “eating off their floors”. It was so unfortunate that Russ’s health was failing him and that he had to go onto dialysis. I will surely miss him and I still think of him often. Rest in peace Russ. You have earned it!!

    My heart felt condolences to my sisters and brothers in law. We always enjoyed going to the farm for visits. Russell enjoyed giving us tours of the dairy farm and the machinery. Brianne even experienced for the first time with Russell a cow giving birth. We will always cherish these memories.
