Russ used to play at EVC in the worship team. Even though his instrument was bass, he knew we needed a drummer... so he learned to play the drums. Then when we needed a guitar player... he learned that.. then he thought about picking up the keys. What struck me was not that he was just talented, but that he would do whatever was needed and whenever. He was sort of my 'go to guy.' He had a heart that was over-sized in caring for others and giving to others. I will miss his smile, his warmth, his kindness, his gentleness, his easy ways and laughter... his friendship. I will miss him!
