You have my deepest condolences for your loss of Russell. Death is truly an enemy of all of us. Our loving heavenly father Jehovah will reunite us with our lost loved ones soon as promised in the Bible book of Revelation in chapter 21 verse 3,4. These verses may bring you much comfort.

CandleHad the privilege to work with Russ for the past 7 1/2 yrs. And all though we had our differences we became good friends over the last couple yrs. He was an honest hard working man!! Loved to hear his hunting and fishing stories. Also bragged about how proud he was of Rachel and loved spending time with his grandson Damian. He will be sadly missed. Thoughts and prayers to the family. Out paths will cross again old friend!!

All of us at Kersten Lumber will miss having Russ around. Miss his humor and hunting and fishing stories.

CandleI Worked with Roscoe (Russell) for 11 years at Vulcan in Antigo. When you had a conversation with Roscoe you could alwsys expect it to turn into a racing subject as he sure loved his races. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hitz family. Roy and Nancy St.Peter
