I grew up with Aaron, and Russell was like a second father to me. He loved his motorcycle, country music, dried fish, and the maple leafs. He took Aaron and I out fishing at my cottage where I caught my fist fish. The line broke when I was reeling in the fish, and Russell (I don’t know how) spotted the line in the water, snagged it, and was able to bring the fish in. He was tremendously generous, and always bussed Aaron and I around to get McDonald’s or Taco Bell when we were young. In retrospect, we probably didn’t deserve it, because we were such little trouble makers. I appreciate all the things you did for us Russell. Thank you.
