Russell MacInnes, Our Dear Friend and Coworker

Many of you have followed Russell’s story, first published in our newsletter in August 2013, and again September 2014.

After 21 years of service as a utility worker with the District, Russell was diagnosed with ALS in 2013.

Everyone who had the privilege to know Russell remembers the pure joy he brought to life every day, and the smile that never seemed to leave his face.

He put up a courageous fight these last two years, never losing his joy.  On Friday, March 6, 2015, his battle ended and he passed on.

Many of you have given generously to help Russell’s family with his staggering medical expenses.  On behalf of his wife, Brenda, and daughter, Elizabeth, we thank you for your caring generosity.

If you would like to make a donation in Russell’s memory, the MacInnes family have a gofundme site to help with medical expenses.  You can also read more about their journey with ALS there.

We will deeply miss you Russell!  You will always be a member of our family and we honor your memory.
