R.J. took pride in providing for his family. His work allowed him to travel all over, including to Florida and Alaska; he enjoyed many people through his work, most which became friends over the years. He loved fast cars and his Harley’s. Always smiling and laughing, he brought joy to everyone, especially with his delicious cooking. Russell was truly a great father and mentor to so many.
