George Kittelson Russell

Born: 2/27/1937, Billings, Montana
Death: 5/22/2014, Moab, Utah

George “Babe” Kittleson Russell

In 1937 I started the ride of a lifetime. I was born in Billings, Montana to George C. “Bud” & Lola Russell of Ballentine, Montana on February 27, 1937. I spent the war years in Renton, Washington where Mom worked for Boeing Aviation while Dad served in the Navy as a Sea Bee. Thanks to Mom I was able to see the first B-29 Super Fortress lift of the runway on September 21, 1942.

My school years started in Renton, moved to Hardin Montana and finished in Marine Boot camp at Camp Pendleton, California.

Fifty some odd years ago my semi truck broke down and stranded me in Moab. From there, I found work in drilling shot holes, oil field construction and driving truck. I then went to work at Texas Gulf salt plant, retiring after 34 plus years.

In the middle of my working years I met and married Linda Gayle Tucker. We had two fine children, Bryan C. and Kristie Lee.

Later on I married Billie and although we divorced, I never stopped loving her.

I enjoyed taking my kids fishing on Boulder Mountain, gathering firewood and riding dirt bikes. My greatest pastime was barbequing for my friends and family, while having my famous margaritas on the patio. No matter what- Life has been good and I had a really, really good ride. I ended that ride on May 22, 2014 to go to my margaritaville in the sky.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
