Russ and Pam have been lifelong friends. Russ and Skip graduated from CVU in 1967. We have kept in touch over these 50 plus years. Russ would always include Skip in his tractor parades and plow days since we moved back to Elizabethtown from Western, NY. When we lived in Western NY, Russ and Pam would come by with their 5 th wheel and spend a weekend with us. Russ genuinely cared about people. He was a very kind and thoughtful man. We will miss him. Skip and Lil
