We miss you at the college, Bobby. You always kept us entertained no matter what. But beyond that, you were a great guy. Broken hearts all around.

It has been my pleasure to work with Bobby Russell at Alamance Community College. We worked together in the Information Services department. He was a unique individual. Bobby's gift was that he was an expert fisherman, in the metaphorical sense. Bobby would throw out a line and watch for a smile. He would cast again and see if he could catch a laugh. Finally, Bobby would go all in to make your worries melt away. Bobby will be missed!
