Sad news

Postby Bigdog » Wed Mar 13, 2013 3:37 pm

I just received a call from Russ Leggitt's wife and Russ passed away early this morning. Russ is a former member of the forum and a great cubber. I will miss him a lot.

I know Miss Martha has had some health issues, but Russ seemed very healthy the last time I saw him. I'm so sorry to hear that he has passed.

So sad to hear. I always liked Russ and the help he gave at CubFests. I always wished I could have made it to Woodson Ridge.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

My condolences. Russ was a fine man and a good friend.

I will never forget the first time I saw Him and Frosty, dressed for the parade at Stonethrow.

Wow! what a shock. Maybe his health was the reason that he did not make DSCF the past two years. Even though this forum has a wealth of guys willing to share their knowledge with us, Russ surely set the bar high, not only giving us his wisdom, but also being a true gentleman . I really enjoyed talking to him, the few times that he and I were together.
