Papa Russell's Service Fundraiser

About This Cause

On September 20th, 2012, the world lost one of the brightest lights to have lit it. Gary Russell, my father, passed away after his long and arduous fight against MS. He was a passionate worker, devoted father, and loving husband. Truly one of the kindest souls, anyone who met my father has felt a lasting impression of his love and compassion in their lives.


My father spent his last year living in Louisiana with his beautiful mother and sister. He was from the south and always truly felt at home there. Under their loving care, my dad spent his last year happy and well taken care of. It is the request of his family that he be buried next to his father in Mississippi.


The members of my family live modest lives and the expense of funeral arrangements are an enormous financial burden. We are all coming together to ensure a perfect and beautiful remembrance for my father. We want him to be laid to rest without inflicting financial hardship on those who are saying goodbye--particularly his mother and sister.


We have been overwhelmed by the number of loved ones and friends who have offered financial and donation support. If you are interested in donating to help the family fund Papa Russell's service, you may do so here. We are endlessly grateful for the love and support we have received from each and every one of you. The abundance of compassion that we have felt is truly an example of human goodness in its purest form. We love each and every one of you.

    Girls, any words that I could write would have no meaning after your loss. Your Dad was a good man, and it was a privilege to have known him.
