Russ took so much pleasure in spending his time with his wife, kids, grandchildren, family and friends. He was a kind, humble, gentle, loving, selfless man who never complained in life, sickness or in health. Everyone truly adored him!! The Bovill Family home on Sunset Lake was one of his fondest places to be with his parents, wife and son Russell. He took so much pride in teaching little Russell how to fish, use tools, build and fix things. Some of his most favorite memories were being at Foxwoods, Las Vegas, Bailey’s Camp with his brother Tom and wife Debbie, Thursday nights playing cards at Scott’s with the guys, being by the pool at Lorraine’s, all his fun memories with Cindy and Jay, throwing Pat’s parties and their annual beach house at Salisbury with Cheryl, Sonya and Kenz as well as everyone else.

He had so much joy during his weekly visits over the summer with his sweet pea Jaylee. He was a member of Chelmsford Elks where he enjoyed playing bingo with Tim and his friends. Russ will forever be missed by so many and leaves behind a legacy that is respected by all. He never stopped fighting and did not want to leave us behind.
