Ellen, I was deeply saddened to hear of Russell's passing but grateful for having enjoyed our time together during my brief tour at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey. I'll never forget our serendipitous meeting more than 20 years ago. Eagle-eyed Ellen spotted a young naval officer lugging his "portable&qu ot; Macintosh computer through the Monterey airport and seized on a mutually beneficial opportunity. For the occasional mac lesson, I found a home-away-from home, Ellen's great home-cooking, a cheesecake recipe I still make to rave reviews, and an unexpected bonus in Russell. He and I quickly became Shields-class sailing partners, fellow mac-loyalists, and good friends as we discovered many shared interests including Russell’s fire-engine red Mazda RX-7. Then I met Jon and his lovely wife Wendy whose annual holiday cards always left me looking forward to next year’s surprise. Looking back now, its so clear how Russell has enriched the lives of not only his family but of everyone who was fortunate enough to have made his acquaintance. His influence lives on in all of us.
