Lance E. Russell

Lance E. Russell, 85, of Millfield, passed away Sunday, March 13, 2022, at O’Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens. He was born March 4, 1937, in Athens County to the late William and Mildred Russell.

Lance worked at Complete General Construction in Columbus in his younger years, and then Abex, Athens Mold and Machine, and over 20 years at Ohio University in the Maintenance Department. He also spent many years farming, pulling tractors, and traveling throughout the states for dirt bike and four-wheeler racing. He really enjoyed the races that were held on the home farm. He will be sadly missed by all who came every year to all the races and waved to Lance as they drove by.

He is survived by two brothers, Howard (Ruth) Russell of Chauncey and Dave (Norma) Russell of Jacksonville; son-in-law Everett Rutter of Lancaster; brother-in-law, Charlie (Judy) McCune of Millfield; a very special brother-in-law Roger (Cathy) McCune of Millfield; sisters-in-law Marian (Jim) Reazor of Florida and Bonnie Shifflet of Glouster; a very special nephew Cole Shifflet (Chelsea Washburn) of Amesville; and many more nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Lance was preceded in death by his wife, Ruth A. (Butch) Russell; son, Chris Russell; and daughter Amber Russell-Rutter; and brother and sister-in-law John and Goldie Russell.

Many thanks to Roger, Cole, Chelsea, and Jim & Kathy Washburn for all the help and care they provided to Lance over the last year.
