Dear Aunt Carol, Lori, Janie & Jill

I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Russell was such a kind person and he is gone way too soon. I have so many memories of every Thanksgiving filled with so many laughs. I know my dad will miss him dearly as well as the rest of us.

Love Kathleen St. Jeanos

Maureen and I are so sad to hear of the news of the passing of Russ. Carol and Russ were the first two people that we met when we moved to Hazlet. And what great neighbors they were and friends. After the move to Bayville we lost touch but we have such fond memories of him. especially when he was cutting his grass and ran over a bee hive and ran and sought shelter in his pool. Our condolences, to all especially Carol and daughters Jill, Jane, Laurie.
