death of a member, RUSSET

Postby shindigman » Sat Feb 13, 2021 2:37 pm

Hi guys, I am devastated to inform you of the death of my lifelong friend Tony Russel (RUSSET) he died from a heart attack on Sunday 17th January, 2 days after his 75th birthday, he has been my best friend for over 70 years, we played together as kids, went to the same primary and grammar schools, I started to play guitar and taught Tony his first chords, we then learned from each other, both played in bands and later formed a shadows band with Tony's younger brother on bass guitar, we both had a lot of good times, and for the last 5 years we ran the Quarry Bank music club (we only have zoom meetings currently) Tony was a great guy, I have so many good memories, a heartbreaking loss of a dear friend - John

Always sad to lose a fellow member. We (most of us) are at a dangerous age.

My sympathy to his family and friends.

Having responded to several posts of mine over the last year or so, it had occurred to me he hadn't posted just lately. Sad news, RIP Tony.
