Russell was born in Milwaukee June 29, 1937 and passed away February 7, 2019 in Milwaukee. The love of his life, Anita passed to the beyond last week on January 30, 2019. Russell needed to wait until he was sure she was lovingly cared for and resting. Russell was born and raised near the Marquette campus and later went into the business world in Milwaukee. His early passion for art resurfaced and he returned to school at UWM and earned a degree in Art. While working his way through UWM he met and later wed his beloved Anita. Russell was a great art historian and versatile artist showing excellence in many mediums as well as being a talented restorer. He had multiple impressive shows in Milwaukee and North Carolina. He was proud of his work bringing art appreciation to thousands of children as an art educator for Milwaukee Public Schools. he will be missed by his longtime neighbors in Whitefish Bay, friends and former co-workers. Russell was thankful for both his and Anita's splendid care at the Jewish Home and Care Center and Home Town Hospice.
