Dear family of Chuck Russell,

We learned too late of Chuck's passing to attend services. I worked at the USX Research Lab in Monroeville from 1973 thru 1983 and worked in Chuck's Ceramic Eng. Group. Chuck was a fine person and was a good friend and associate. We often played golf together in the golf league and had many good times.

Sharon and I wish you our blessings,

Bill Vance
