At age 21 he was the 4th generation to join the family insurance agency. Dreaming of his death at age 45 as an insurance agent convinced him there was more to life and it was time to find it and live it. After growing the business for 27 years he sold it at age 48.

Giving back provides the most personal satisfaction. Russell was the president and capital campaign chair for the building of the Providence Ronald McDonald House.
