Russell Lowell Taylor, born March 25, 1956, passed away on December 27, 2020, of cancer. Russell was surrounded by his loving family while under hospice care.

He was born in Shelby, Montana to Elsie and Robert Taylor. He joined big sister, Roberta; brother, Joe; and sister, Mary. Russ grew up in Shelby. After graduating, he joined the army and served for four years in Lawton, OK and Germany. Russ had two children, daughter, Bonnie and son, Raymond.
