Darrin Leroy Russell, known best by many as “DR” passed away at his home on February 12, 2018 at the age of 52. A father, a brother and a friend, the loss of DR will be felt by many for years to come.

Born September 23, 1965 to Barbara & Justin Russell in Salinas, California, this future Electrical Contractor would find his start in the trade by sweeping the floors of Central Wholesale at the age of 14. It was then he realized becoming a master electrician was what he wanted to do.

Aside from circuit breakers and scissor lifts, it was baseball and the shooting range that called to DR. Seeing him around town in his trademark Cleveland Indians Hat and brown work boots, you could always count on the best profanity ridden conversation from him.

DR is survived by his 15 year old daughter, Danielle Russell, sister, Kelly Bodenschatz, brother, Bryan Russell (Andrea), nephews, Kyle, Josh and Jeremy Bodenschatz, Hendrix Russell, niece, Sofia Russell and several cousins.

A Memorial will be held at 7:00 p.m., Monday, February 26, 2018 at Struve and Laporte Chapel, 41 W. San Luis Street, Salinas, CA. 93901

In lieu of flowers, a ‘GoFundMe’ has been created to establish a Trust for DR’s daughter. gofundme.com/fund-for-drs-little-girl-danielle
