Hundreds (perhaps thousands) of people knew Russ Worthington. He perhaps was better known as Cousin Russ.
I was amongst the many who knew and admired Cousin Russ. He seemed to be at all the genealogy conferences, helping others in the Family Tree Maker booth. When he wasn’t in the booth, he was usually someplace else helping someone with a question they had.
I spent the last hour trying to write my thoughts about Cousin Russ. I failed. Then I found a eulogy written by Geoff Rasmussenin the Legacy Genealogy News web site that said everything I could not think of. I suggest you read Geoff’s article at: https://news.legacyfamilytree.com/legacy_news/2022/05/cousin-russ-well-miss-you-and-thank-you.html.
