Russ was a graduate of Carmel High School and Miami of Ohio University. He was admired by and will be missed by so many. His infectious laugh was known by everyone he encountered. A huge football fan, Russ rarely missed The Ohio State football games.
He loved anything that had to do with his beloved Buckeyes. At the time of death, Russ was working for Maddox Electric (formerly ERMCO of Florida) as a Project Manager/Estimator. His field of work allotted him several exciting opportunities which included construction of the Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, OH, the renovation of Soldier Field in Chicago, IL and Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Pandora in Orlando, FL.
