Uncle Dean was a wonderful man that treated me as though I were his flesh and blood. I will never forget him and how he loved me.
Dear Joy and Family,
Was so sorry to hear today about Russ’s passing and on behalf of the W. M. Grace family we wanted to send you a note and offer our condolences. Russ was a great person, I recall fondly the patience he had with me teaching me about the construction industry. Truly a nice person, so sorry for your loss.

I was very honored to be able to call him Grandpa Dean. My brother is married to his granddaughter. He said “oh you’re Jeff’s family, that means you’re my family.” He and Grandma Joy are the most amazing people I’ve ever had the pleasure of being around. I love them purely and she is in my thoughts. I was heartbroken to have to miss the services.
Our family lost another beautiful light.
