His wonderful close circle of local friends, Brian, Ari, Roxy, Matt, Carissa, Aaron and Devin, whom would get together often, were so important to him and he loved them deeply.
Russ loved nature and going for long walks at local nature centers and the zoo. He was kind and caring to animals, particularly his pet rabbit Bunny who he adored despite Bunny's feisty nature.
