Mrs. Luchies & Family,

It was with great sadness that I learned of Russ's passing. I met Russ several years ago when he consulted, planned and oversaw the renovation of St. Basil Church where I am the Facilities Manager. We not only had business relationship we had an instant friendship. Russ was not only unbelievably knowledgeable about his trade, was passionate about it and his customers. I will miss talking with him like we did from time to time. My prayers and thoughts are with your entire family at this most difficult of times. We were blessed that Russ came into our lives and his legacy will live on in the amazing work he did on our church.
