You are/were a wonderful father to the kids and wife that chose to be in your life. Especially to the very end. Your life was filled with happiness and good memories of all of us. As being your little girl and your caregiver for the last two years of your wonderful life, I couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you for giving me permission and trust to take care of you. It was my honor to be there through the tears and sorrow, the happiness and smiles. Especially through the process of trying to get you a transplant. I was there when we got the news that you were accepted and the news were you were declined. I’m proud to be a Brock. I will hold that till the day I’m with you again. Finally rest peacefully. You don’t have to worry about the people who choose to not be in your life. But be great full for the people who stood by your side through everything. I love you dad. You are my bestfriend. Will always be. I don’t know what’s left of my journey on this world but just know, I will do it in your name.
Forever, your little girl

This is Shannon Russells oldest biological daughter thanks for mentioning me in the obituary, Russell junior knows of me and so does Malena. My dad knew me he was involved in my life a short time, as a newborn about 6 or 7 and at 14! if were going to list his children in an obituary lets list biological over unbiogical please. I wanna say though i didnt have a relationship i still loved my father unconditionally yes i had anger towards him but i always wanted a relationship but he never reached put to me personally and now he never will. 43 years on this earth without him to help me and i will continue to do so but i want it known i was his first born his first daughter, he told me when i was younger to become a nurse guess what dad i did. Ive accomplished so much and u missed out on it all i gave birth to a beautiful little girl u will never know! Im sad i didnt get to say goodbye, im sad that u didnt get to know me, however im greatful for my brother rusty because he and i have been bonded since we met! I hope your visions going out were the sorrow u caused in my life!

I am shocked that as a nurse who nurtures and takes care of others feels this is the appropriate place to leave such a message. I’m assuming you attended a Vocational School of some sort . You really should of listened/studied a little closer in Psychology It’s very obvious you must of completed that course online due to your posting on this memorial ! You definitely could benefit from some cognitive therapy to get over the hurt you have done nothing about regarding your relationship with Russ over the last 43yrs the phone works both ways. I’m sorry you never had a relation ship with Russ he was a GREAT MAN who loved life , a GREAT provider for his family as well as a father to many of their friends, and a very humble person who asked for nothing in return . Russ has minor children who don’t deserve to be subjected to your attention seeking passive aggressive poor me behavior. I really hope your proud of your self and have closure now! Stay away from Russ’s family as you have been.... Oh and his vision as he was leaving this world were filled with love and comfort as he embraced those of us who were there in his arms.
