The news of Russell's passing is both shocking and sad. I first met Russ in 1976 when I joined the MBCA and through the years he was always kind, patient, and willing to share his vast knowledge of mechanical banks with me and anyone else who wanted to learn and grow in the hobby. Of course,Russ was also The Guy you could go to to for bank repairs and parts of any kind, and always seemed more than satisfied to charge you less than what his time and effort would have required. In sum, I believe the word that best describes Russ is "mensch"-- a down-to-earth man of great integrity and honor. My heart goes out to his wonderful wife and longtime sidekick Sheila and to the rest of the Harrington family. Please take care of yourselves.

The Wilson Point Community has lost one of its most active, involved and productive residents with the recent passing of Russ Harrington. Russ, often called Buzz, has demonstrated his strong commitment to the Community in many ways. He was the longest serving member of the Wilson Point Civic Improvement Association Board of Directors. He and his wife Sheila established and successfully managed the Wilson Point Parade for years. Russ was an active member and later the leader of the Church of the Ascension on Wilson Point Rd. until its recent closing and has been a key factor in ensuring that the Church site remains a positive part of our neighborhood.
Russ owned many properties in our Community, which were always well maintained. He was a strong supporter of our local Volunteer Fire Department. He never failed to stand up for what was right for his Community. His support could always be depended upon, whether it was his personal time and energy or financial donations when needed.
While all his efforts on behalf of our Community are greatly appreciated, the one thing many of us most cherished was his friendship. Russ was an honest, caring, and generous person who truly cared about people.
Russ’ legacy and influence will no doubt be preserved through the many family members he has on Wilson Point. Russ will surely be missed, but he will long be remembered for his positive impact on our Community.
