Michael J. Russell, 57, of Ruby, SC, passed away peacefully on February 25, 2022, at home surrounded by family.
He was born February 11, 1965, in Winter Haven, Florida, to Joe and Lynda Russell. He was the oldest of two siblings and grew up in Bartow, Florida. Mike became a resident of Chesterfield County over 25 years ago.
He was a hard worker, but had a humble soul. During his life, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, cruising on his motorcycle, but most importantly he cherished his time with friends and family the most. He was the life of the party anywhere he went, and could always keep a crowd laughing. His bubbly spirit will be deeply missed by all.
He is survived by his life long soulmate and loving partner, Laurie of Ruby, SC; daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer Russell and Brian Weaver of Chesterfield, SC; daughter and son-in-law, Jessica and Justin Rivers of Chesterfield, SC; daughter and son-in-law Karie and George Mortensen of Port St. Lucie, FL; and by his seven grandchildren, Kyle, Jordan, Rylee, Erin, Trevor, Holden, and Alex. He is also survived by his mother, Lynda Russell, and his father, Joe Russell.
Norton Funeral Home & Crematory is honored to be serving the Russell family.
