Oh Dear Ann, Maggie & Jaquie & family! We are so shocked and saddened to just now hear of the loss of your precious Russell. What an honorable man who passionately loved his girls and family! We had not seen him in a number of years but we alway respected him and appreciated his advice on occasion. We have already missed the visitation at this point but please know that you all are in our prayers! Praise God for a life well lived! Linda and Ronnie Taylor

My thoughts and prayers are with you Ann, Jaqui and Megan. Russell was an awesome boss & attorney, and gave me a chance when I was just 17 yrs old. I learned alot working for him, and got to know you and the girls when they were just toddlers! He will be truly missed.

I met the Daves many years ago when I began doing lawn maintenance for them at their house in Lubbock and at the house in Ransom Canyon. From the beginning I had a deep respect for Russell. I always called him Mr Daves and one day after doing some work for him at the law office we were sitting in his office and he told me Lynn you can call me Russell you don’t have to call me Mr Daves. I never told him but I always looked up to him and felt like I could ask for his advice for legal dealings. He was always there for me and in several ways I was there for he and Ann. He was a gentle giant of a man. I will always remember him as a good friend. My heart is heavy with his passing but I know God has called him to do His work in heaven. I am going to miss you Mr Daves. Peace be with you and your family. I hope to meet up with you again one day and hug your neck and do some catching up.

I meant Russell in 1973. Became great friend, and had a lot of the Adventures together. Russell taught me how to skydive, and paddle a canoe Down the Rio Grand River. To scuba diving in Honduras.
