I am so saddened by this news. Russ was my class mate and friend in high school and a FB friend. He had a great sense of humour and was such a warm, friendly guy. Gone far too soon. 😔
Sending my deepest sympathies to your family. 💕

Russ was a mentor, a friend and a champion. He taught me so much, from dog training to running a business, and also coached me on how to be a better person. Most of all, he taught me how to be patient.

My favourite memory was when we were setting up for Aquadogs and putting everything in the trailer. We would have endless chats. Russ showed me what dedication and hard work meant.

Russ, Amber, Gavin and I will miss you very much. May you rest in peace and we will meet again soon.
