He was preceded in death by his wife Viola Anderson and his brother, Farrell. He is survived by his brother-in-law Robert Anderson (Bev) and family from Kathryn, ND, his nephew Rolland Anderson (Debbie) and family from Glenwood, MN, and his niece Debrah Danelz (Robert) and their family from Donnelly, MN. Russell was passionate about being an active member of the Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. He was a part of the congregation in St. Louis Park, MN until he relocated to the Morris, MN congregation in 2009. At the age of 22 he dedicated his life to Jehovah, as symbolized by his baptism, and committed to obey a command Jesus gave all his followers (Matt 24:14). For 74 years he shared the good news found at John 17:3 with everyone he met. He looked forward to the government that all Christians were instructed to pray for in the Lord's Prayer (Matt 6:9,10). He now sleeps in death awaiting the resurrection to life (John 5:28,29; Ps 37:11,29). The memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, December 28, 2013, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses located at 104 East Highway 28 in Morris, MN.
