I will miss the all too many times. He used to try to get me going with his sly remarks. He always made me laugh. Remember the good times years ago when we all used to go snowmobiling one of the best times in my life Denny Rick john And Russ Jim, my gosh, can't remember everybody used to play sock tag on the snowmobiles. Fishing on the pontoon or just hanging out. He could always keep my attention with his wit. I will miss now that he's gone more than ever. This was one of the best people I ever knew in my whole life.May God bless him and his entire family.

i have so many memories of Uncle Russ, but my favorite times were having coffee up at the restaurant in the mornings...it helped me so much after losing Dad, his love and support will always be remembered, but I am comforted that there is a big table with coffee poured and the stories will live on forever, with him and all those Lee brothers!
