Russell went to be with the Lord and his wife of 58 years, Gwendolyone Joy (Keele) Leazer on August 25, 2017. He was a Christian man, whose life reflected his strength and Christian values. Russell served his country during the Korean War and later married the love of his life- Joy of Crescent, Okla. Together they raised and are survived by 5 children: Lisa Thompson (Tim), DellVan Leazer (Joyce), Nathan Leazer (Rhonda), Karrie Terrell and Amy Leazer, 11 Grandchildren, 8 Great Grandchildren. He was a master craftsman and could tackle any project he attempted from carpentry to mechanics, and more. He served on the Guthrie Police Dept. and later worked for Big Chief Oil, from which he retired. In later years, he especially enjoyed serving God in Prison Ministry and Mission Trips and spending time with his grandchildren. He’ll best be remembered for his love of God and family, willingness to help others, work ethics and witty sense of humor!
He was a loving Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather- who will be greatly missed. Services will be held at Memorial Rd. Church of Christ, Sept 9, 2017, at 10:00 am.
