Private funeral services have already been held according to Russell’s wishes. The family is being cared for by Dutcher Funeral Home in Coldwater.
Russell was born September 29, 1929 to Joseph and Lorena (Smith) Anderson in Albany, Indiana. He graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. Russell enlisted in the United States Coast Guard on February 15, 1949 in Cincinnati, Ohio and was discharged on March 9, 1954 in Seattle, Washington where he received the National Defense, Korean Service and United Nations Service Medals.
Russell worked as an accountant for AMAX in Coldwater for 32 years, retiring in 1983. He was the plant controller when he retired.
