I remember Russell from way back (Ottiwell Elementary School, Normandin Jr High and NBHS).  He was a great guy and a friend to all who knew him.  Words cannot express my sadness today.  RIP Russell.

Captain Russ -

The NBHS football days were joyous...I can't believe that you have left us.

Time surely has marched on.

I got a call from Konnie Yankopolus last night informing me of Russ's passing. The three of us were close friends through the years of our youth. Konnie and I visited him at home just before the 45th reunion. He was in tough shape with his health at that point, although he was still working. Condolences go out to his family. May he rest in peace.

Russ was my lawyer since the early 80's, and was presently handling Mike's estate.  Over the years he assisted my Mom in some legal issues and and was very patient with her.  I tried to get Russ to sign on to the web site and tried to convince him to attend  the reunion or a get together, but was never successful.

He had been very sick over the past 2 years, and was often in the hospital, but returned back to work as soon as he could.  Each time I had an appointment, once business was discussed...we were off the clock.  We would talk about our years at New Bedford High and laughed over a few stories. 

God Bless him now, and I hope he is at peace now.  My sympathy to his family.

Richard, it was wonderful of you to post these pictures as a memorial to a person who never forgot where he came from.  He is no longer suffering and is at peace.

     I also remember Russ from NBHS football.  A very good player, a gentleman, and a leader in the Class of '65. God Bless you my friend.  We will meet again.   Lenny Scammons

Russ and I went through confirmation classes together. He always had a great smile and infectious personality. Rest in Peace.

I sat behind Russ in home room our senior year.  He was always kind and considerate to everyone.  His on-field persona was so different from the "real" Russ.

So sorry to hear of Russ's passing and his long illness.  I sat next to him in a couple of classes.  Though I saw him as one of the popular kids, he was always kind, considerate and friendly to everyone.  My sympathy to his family and friends.
