I just learned of Russell's passing. I first met Russell back in 1963 at Buckroe Junior High School.

Such a smart guy. I always enjoyed talking to him.  There are certain people I remember who were just sooo smart that it was just amazing. He was also so very interesting to talk to.

Certain people I remember very vividly even after 50+ years.  Russell was one of them.

My condolences to his family . We miss you Russell.

My brother was so good to and for Mom. Drake and Wendy were visiting from Las Vegas when he passed and they, also were a Blessing for Mom. I will never be able to be on the Cape again due to physical this and that but our Ancestters have been there since the 1600's and my spirit will always abide. Am so pleased that my son, Krith Par and his wife, Joy Davison Parr and children Drew (17) and Jordan (14) LOVE the Cape and still visit as often as possible.

I also remember Rus going back to Buckroe Jr High in 1969.  He was always a good person and a good student.  I am sorry to hear of his passing, and wish the best for his family and friends, and especially for his sister, Chris.
