Lester Leroy (Lee) Russell
Lester Leroy (Lee) Russell, born July 24, 1941, entered eternal life on September 3, 2021. His spirit is carried on by his loving wife Bonnie Jo Russell, their children, many grandchildren, four surviving siblings, and an extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life. We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Lee during his 80 years on earth.
Lee’s passion in life was land developing. He was known for his creative contracts in real estate. Lee was of the old ways and made a deal on a hand shake. He did not boast of his successes. He was humble in his daily walk and loved being a man of his word. His kindness was contagious through each life he touched. He will be missed immensely by all who knew him.
There will be a celebration of life, October 2 (Saturday) at 2 p.m. at Lee and Bonnie’s farm at 722 Sugar Ave. Ontario, Oregon.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to St Jude’s as Lee and Bonnie are firm believers in their mission.
Condolences for Bonnie and family may be mailed to her home at 511 2nd St. SW., Fruitland Idaho, 83619
