    Russell was always a friend you could count on. I never saw Russell in a bad mood. He was the hardest worker and always had boundless energy. I will think of him often and all the good times we had working together. He is resting now and will always be remembered.

    My condolences to the Stith family. May you rest in peace, Russell! You will always be in our hearts. I will always remember your laughter when I say “you’re working hard again, where are your people? Hire me so that I can help with cleaning-up the building” and you would always laugh and say “yes, Beth, yes, I got to”. Russell, we will surely miss you!

    My condolences to Russell’s family. I will truly miss my buddy Russell. I worked with him for 5 years at Lifenet Health for ABM. I used to always tell him “Russell you are the best boss I’ve have ever had. He would laugh and say “OH Yeah??”. He would come and check on me and as soon as he saw me he would say”Miss Smileyyyyy! with a big smile on his face. He was such a pleasure to work with and he truly cared about people. He was such a hard worker. So hard that I used to tell him to slow down and take it easy. He was so easy to talk to. Even when I had to call out sick, he truly cared. A couple of times I was seen at the emergency room and he would tell my husband to give him a call back and let him know how I am doing. My husband really like Russell too. He told me you really have a good boss. Russell and I were only a year apart and I would tease him and say “Alright Russell you better slow down, you know you are getting old and he would say no no you getting old Miss Smiley and we would just laugh and laugh.I would say you know Im a year younger than you and he would laugh and say thats alright I’m still younger. LOL. I am going to miss my buddy so much. Rest in peace my friend!!! My prayers go out to his family and friends. May God give you all peace and comfort in this time.
