Paul was born on Oct. 10, 1940, in Kennett, Mo., to the late Willie and Lillie Russell. He is preceded in death by his brother, Bill Russell, and great-grandson, Judah Lee.

Paul leaves behind to cherish his memory his devoted wife, Betty Russell; sons, Paul Russell, Randy (Patrice) Russell; stepdaughters, Pam (Calvin) Townsend, Shannon (Lamar) Currington; stepsons, Shawn (Karen) Hudspeth, Chris (Anna) Hudspeth; grandchildren, Brittany, Gerald, Reid, Roni Marie, Blake, Summer, Austin, Coy, Denny, Joey, Lindsey, Bryce, Jacob, Caleigh, Dustin, Kelly, Bridget, Evan, Connor, Mason; and many great-grandchildren.
