Graham Paul Russell

Graham Paul Russell, 61 died peacefully at home on Tuesday, June 11, 2019. Born and raised in Wilmington, DE, Graham began his professional career with Dupont in the engineering division then went on to co-found Precision Inspection, Inc. where he remained for over 20 years. He retired in May, 2017 to enjoy his new life in Sarasota, Florida.

He was blessed with an “extended family” of life-long friends and a wicked sense of humor. Graham’s zest for life also allowed him to enjoy cruising with family, golfing with friends, especially the annual golf trip with the guys, and the “You the Man League” fantasy football club.  He is survived by Maria, his sister Barbara (Dwayne Jennings), Maria’s family and his extended family of friends who will miss him dearly.  Graham was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph & Louise.

I am sorry to read of the passing of your loved one, Graham. He will be missed. Sickness and death was never a part of God's original plan for mankind. Sadly due to the disobedience of Adam in the Garden of Eden we all inherited sin and death as recorded at Romans 5:12. Lovingly Our Grand Creator extends to us all the hope of everlasting life once again as recorded at John 3:16,36. He will make this time a reality by means of his Kingdom in which we pray for in the Lord's Prayer. Once more I am sorry for your loss.

Barb, Dwayne & Maria we were so shocked and very saddened to hear of Grahams passing. We have always enjoyed Grahams company when we would get together. Sadly for us God had a different plan for him and he is with your Mom and Dad having a grand time. You are all in our prayers during this difficult time. Please know that we are there for whatever you need. Love you guys.
