Mike was one of a kind, and unfortunately they just don’t make ’em like him anymore… Extremely knowledgeable, dependable and helpful. He was a welder and backhoe operator the majority of his adult life. Mike was a true jack of all trades, evidenced by the fact that we never found anything he couldn’t do!! He often referred to his many “repairs” as his Russell Riggin’. Although throughout the years, many of us have “fussed” about his numerous “repairs”!!!
Mike was a very creative and passionate person… always on the go and willing to help anyone he ever met…. And he never met a stranger. A young man who worked alongside Mike said this of him, “I’ve worked with a lot of people and none finer than him. I wish I had known him longer. Anyone that met him will miss him.” Truer words have never been spoken about Mike Russell
