Bobby Rex Russell

Bobby Rex Russell, 44, passed away peacefully on Nov. 10, 2014 in Portland, Oregon, after residing in Astoria, Oregon for several years. Bobby was born in Rupert, Idaho on August 20, 1970 to Pat Holt and Jerry Russell. He was a jack of all trades, a gypsy with a golden heart. He loved his family and treasured his children. He had the strongest of minds and even stronger heart. He had three children and was still raising his youngest. He loved camping, fishing, cooking, and racing. He chose not to have a funeral but a small private family service at the ocean and in the mountains. He is survived by his mother Pat Holt (Ed Cosgrove), son Shane Russell, daughters Shaynia Russell, Mariah Russell (Richard Wiseman), sisters Tiffany Russell, Suprena Russell (Jeff Welch), Laurie Crosland (Adolfo Martinez), and brothers Jason (Melanie) Holt, Shane Russell, and grandson Lucas Wiseman. We will miss all of his crazy bedtime stories.

    My condolences for your loss. Life is so short and those we love are gone from our life to quickly. Isiah 25:8 is heartwarming. “He will swallow up death forever and the sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces.” May the God of loyal love comfort you during your time of sorrow.
