Russell loved his 4 children immensely. He was an avid golfer, pool player, cribbage player, and enjoyed ice fishing. He’d go to any length for a laugh. He always had a sarcastic comment or a wise crack or two.

Russell is survived by his wife Crystal (Germundson) Nolan, children; Erin, Joyce, Ethan and Caleb, grandson Dawson, brother Brian (Joyce) Randall and sister Corinne (Steven) Walton.

Russell is preceded in death by his parents Joel & Corinne Randall.

Memorial services for Russell will be held on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 2:00 PM in the Trinity Lutheran Church of Cooperstown, ND. In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorials to WeeCare Day Care Center or the Cooperstown Country Club, both in Cooperstown. Arrangements with the Cooperstown Funeral Chapel.
