In 1970 he married Doris Jacks McDonough. He loved and cared for her four children, Luane, Ramona, Diana and Russell, as any wonderful father should. They had 2 daughters together, loan and Julie. They all loved ranching, fishing and hunting and short trips. Russ lived and helped on the ranch for many years until he married Gaff. They sold the sheep later and raisedcattle.
