Sincere condolences to the family of Russell Arnone. We were shocked to hear of his passing. He was in the Lions Club with my dad and would come to our home to do our taxes. Since I’ve been married for 32 years he has been doing our taxes which we would look forward to. He still had the sign in his tax office window that I made for him so many years ago. He always talked highly of his family showing off pictures of his beautiful grandchildren.. Russ we will miss you dearly and may you Rest In Peace with the Lord and reunited with Millie and your family! Rich & Barb Parry

Hello Anna Louise, you don't know me but I knew your father for many years. He did my taxes ever since I could remember. He spoke of you every time I went to see him. He loved you dearly. He was so happy when your children arrived. He proudly showed me their pictures all the time. He will be missed by so many people. My prayers are with you at this difficult time.
