He led an active life which included scuba diving, water skiing, hiking and fishing, gardening, and tennis. He loved cross word puzzles. Most of all, he was a teacher - interested in everyone, he wanted to make others happy.
Win and Russ moved to Chico in 2002 to be near their daughter, Bonnie Wilson, and her husband Gary. In Chico they continued their active life with the Trinity United Methodist Church, bird watching and Sierra Sunrise activities. After Win’s death in 2003, Russ lived at Windchime of Chico.
