Bill Russ was a good man, always had a smile. He was a honest and most decent officer, helped me once when we had an issue with someone staying in the neighborhood long long time ago....
I remember about every time I saw him - so sad to see him go.

Though I moved from New Unionville in 1998, I miss Bill as a delightful soul in this world. Showing his Colt pistols, talking about cars, nature, food and family -- he was a man of strength whom I admire. Blessings to you dear family.
