A bunch of us who worked with Russ at Camp Hazen YMCA in Chester, CT, are only just learning of his passing now, in mid-March. I--and many others--loved and admired Russ, and deeply mourn his loss. My condolences to the family, with apologies that this is coming so belatedly.

Those of us connected to the Camp might well put together a tribute of some sort. If we do, we'd like his family to know about it. I notice that this guestbook expires very soon, and without it we will have trouble tracking down family members. If there's anyone in the family reading this, or if there are people at the newspaper or funeral home who have contact information for family members, could you please pass al my contact information ( and ask them to get in touch? Thanks.

In sorrow,
Glenn Hendler
