It is with a heavy heart that we learn that Brian Russell, President of Bryston passed away on Saturday from an apparent heart attack. We will provide details as we learn more. In a blog posting, Brian’s colleague James Tanner wrote:
Saturday I lost a terrific friend and business associate.
Brian Russell passed away in his sleep Saturday from a suspected heart attack. He was 68. I worked with Brian for over 45 years and he was the most kind and caring individual I have ever known. He came across as a rough gruff bear of a guy but deep down he had the emotions of a teddy bear.
I will miss him a lot and I am still in disbelief over this.
