  1. Mrs Susan Clyde and family, you have my deepest condolences with the lose of such a great family member. Russ was a great friend and always will be remembered as someone who would always help you if you asked him. He will surely be remembered by many and forgotten by few. He was always a great husband and father because he always was there to help. His family was the core of his life. He never turned a friend down that needed help and he was a good friend. The days ahead are going to be tough but I hope that you and your family will have the strength to get through these dark days. May God bless you and your family.


    Susan, Sorry to hear your loss of Russ. Even though we knew each more in high school and in sports then after school life he was one of the good guys. He was lucky to have you as his husband and fried for 76 years.
