Russell graduated in 1966 from Peoria High School. After high school he entered the United States Air Force Academy at Lackland AFB where he received advanced training in aircraft maintenance at Sheppard AFB, Texas. He went overseas in December of 1966 and was stationed at Mac-tan AFB in the Philippines. He returned to the States in 1968 to finish his time in the service until 1970. He then moved to Illinois to work at Caterpillar, and he was also a car mechanic. Then, he moved his family to Jacksonville, Florida in 1978. Russ worked as a mechanic. He was always working hard to support his family. His other forms of work were as an asphalt laborer and a truck driver before he finally retired in 2009. He was a kind and loving man who would give you the shirt off his back. He enjoyed spending time with his family and most importantly his grandchildren. They were most important to him. He loved being outdoors working on cars, motorcycles, and his semi-truck. He also loved building things including a house with his dad in his early years. He was an avid motorcycle rider and loved to ride his Harley Davidson up until he passed it off to his grandson Marco. He will be dearly missed but never forgotten.
