Thomas L. Russell

Batavia – Thomas L. Russell, age 78, of Francis Rd, passed away Saturday evening (September 2) at Strong Memorial Hospital in the loving presence of his family.

Tom will be remembered as a loving and devoted husband, father, grandpa, brother and uncle, who loved, cared for and doted on his family with every fiber of his being. His humor brought a smile to anyone that had the pleasure of knowing him. He enjoyed taking care of his lawn and gardening with his wife, helping out with whatever was needed at his daughter’s dance studio, shopping, spending time with his grandchildren, and was an avid Buffalo Bills fan.

He will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 53 years, Nadine Waite Russell; children, Thomas M. Russell and Kristin (Chad) Alquist; grandchildren, Devin Tyczka, Drake Tyczka, Gunnar Alquist, Tanner Alquist, Addison Alquist; siblings, Bev (late Patrick) Mooney, Judith (late Maurice) Atkins, Bruce (late Cheryl) Russell, Patricia (James) Ehmann, Edward (Pamela) Russell; along with many in-laws, nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
