Wishing our deepest sympathy and condolences. Russ was a genuinely nice man with many interesting stories. We did not gather often, but when we did he always brought warmth and laughter upon the room. Every year I looked forward to discussing his ideas on his craft in woodwork with him. He was very talented. Rest in peace, love, Avi, Sophie, and Ben.
