I had the honor of working with Russell for awhile. Got to know him at work and became friends away from work. One snowy night he helped me (because I didn't know how) put chains on a truck on the side of Fancy Gap Mountain. Once a week for awhile we would meet back at the Holiday Inn in Princeton, Wva. In one or the others room we would enjoy KFC and talk. I'll always treasure those memories of a man I found to always be good to me and helpful. This world, my world is a better place because Russell Palmer was here. He will be missed!
