I have not been a Master Gardener for very long, but Russ embraced me like I was. He was so helpful to me and was a significant participant in the project I lead for the NSVMGA. I was blessed to know him. He will be missed. My condolences to the family.

Russ was in my Master Gardener class but he volunteered far more time and energy. If a volunteer was needed, Russ was there. His humor and energy will be missed by all
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Russ has been a true friend to the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners. We could not have asked for a more dedicated and passionate volunteer. GardenFest 2022 (or any of our other projects) will not be the same without you, Russ.
