He was also my colleague, serving as minister of FUMC Sachse for many years now. The unfolding news is that Russ died even before reaching the hospital, after suffering the attack at about 11 pm.
I was told by someone on the phone there that there are plans for a gathering at 10:30 am Saturday. I wasn’t clear as to whether this was a Memorial Service, so much as a chance for folks to gather in grief.
Please pray for Russ’ family, for his close friends, for FUMC Sachse, and for all of us who loved him on Connections Band.
We will dearly miss him.
