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.

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.
