Russ, aka Lex was one of my favorite patients. I always looked forward to him coming into the clinic. I made sure I got to access his port. I loved all his different shirts, but I think the chemo ninja one was my favorite. We always were laughing about something. I'm so sad to hear about his passing! He will be missed dearly! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. ~Nicole Kahler, his super nurse (that's what he used to call me)

I feel a void that was filled by Russ in my life. I worked with him at US Cellular as I changed positions and really appreciated his openness and passion for others. Recently he helped to ease my own fears with my health and helped to guide my vision of how to live. My condolences go to heather and children he is a great man and will be missed by many. You will remain in my prayers.

Russ was a good man. He took a chance on me when I first moved to Joplin. He was great mentor with a huge heart. He always had time to listen and I always appreciated his ear as well as his advise. He would never shy to set me straight or to have my back. My heart is heavy with his passing. Heather is a great woman and he had nothing but love and respect for her. His family was everything. He will continually be a source of inspiration. I will miss him. My condolences to his beautiful family.

My deepest condolences to Russ' family: his wife, children, mother, and siblings, I worked with Russ at US Cellular and I considered him a store operations expert, and would send him questions for his input. He will be truly missed at US Cellular.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
