Created June 25, 2019
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share the passing of our beloved father, husband, son, uncle, and friend; Russ Christmas. Yesterday Russ took his own life and left this world far too soon after a long time struggle with mental health. We are so sad that he felt like this was his only choice. This loss was sudden, tragic, and incredibly devastating to all who knew him.

Russ was one of the hardest workers we know. He played hard, worked hard, loved his family and was extremely generous with his time. He had a love for the outdoors that was infectious and provided many memories that his friends and family now hold dear.

The biggest loss comes to his wife Emily and their four children; Carter, Ellie, Greyson, and Fletcher. Everyone who knew him knew that his family was number one and always came first.

This GoFundMe page has been set up to help with not only funeral expenses but to also support Emily and she moves forward being the full-time provider to their four children. As friends and family, we will use the money to take care of them the way Russ would have wanted.

We love you so much Russ and we will miss you. I hope you can find peace now and we will always carry you in our hearts.

SPECIAL REQUEST RE: Memorial Service for Russ

We are overwhelmed by the large outpouring of support for Russ and his family. We would like to ask that family and friends carpool when convenient to the memorial service Saturday. While there is parking, we're trying to facilitate everyone in advance. We will have a shuttle on-site.

Due to these challenges, please plan to arrive early so everyone has the opportunity to honor Russ.

The Memorial Service will be held on Saturday June 29, 2019 at 10:30 AM at the Upper Pavilion in Washington Park in Parley’s Canyon just to the east of the Mountain Dell Golf Course. Take I-80 East to Exit 134 and then onto the north frontage road past the Clubhouse.

Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity and love.
