Charles William Russell
POLAND, Ohio – Charles William (Bill/Charlie) Russell of East Liverpool moved on to a peaceful place on Friday Feb. 27, 2015 at the Hospice House in Poland following a lengthy illness.
He was surrounded by his loving wife, Helen, and caring members of his family.
Born in Hammondsville, Ohio on Aug. 31, 1930, he was the son of Mary Auerbaugh and Charles Leroy Russell.
He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, June Forester and one aunt, Dorothy Quring.
Bill was mill wright at the former Crucible Steel in Midland and retired in 1982. He also proudly served his country in the US Marine Corps during the Korean War.
Bill was a member of the East Liverpool Masonic Lodge #681.
He married his wife, Helen, on Oct. 16, 1982 and instantly inherited three children, remaining their father for the next 33 years until his death.
Bill is survived by his wife Helen at home and children, Kris Thompson (Shane), David Birch (Dee Dee), and Jeri Michelle Glenn (Gary).
In addition he leaves four grandchildren, Josh Jackson, Jerry Paul Jackson, Ashley Jenkins (Joe), and Zack Glenn; great grandchildren, Alexis, Olivia, Rosie, and Jace; a special nephew, Mitchell Banfield; two aunts, Margaret Marshall and Eva Smith of East Liverpool; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In addition to his family and friends, Bill will also be missed by his two “Furry” family members, Muffie and Little Boy.
The Arner Funeral Chapel in Chester is in charge of arrangements. However, at Bill’s request, there will be no calling hours or services.
The family wishes to thank the nurses and care givers at the Hospice House in Poland for their exceptional care and kindness during this difficult time.
