    Services for RussianRed

    We lost a greatly valued member of the HuskerMax BBS when RussianRed passed away last Friday, October 4th. I spoke to his son, Richard, Jr., this afternoon and a formal funeral service isn't being planned. The family is hosting a celebration of his life at the American Legion located at 7811 Davenport Street in Omaha on Tuesday, October 8th from 6 to 9 PM Central time. All members of the HuskerMax community that want to join in this celebration are invited to attend. I am making the assumption that Husker game day attire is the dress code.

    Here is the map for the American Legion.

    May 31, 1955 – Oct 4, 2013

    Here is the thread where members have left condolences.

    In honor of Richard the HuskerMax BBS will be dark from 6 to 9 PM tomorrow.

    Good move David.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do…
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Very fitting tribute having the BBS down.

    Good call, David.

    Great tribute honoring RussianRed making the BBS dark from 6 to 9 PM tomorrow.

    I propose a postathon in RussianRed's Perpetual Threads from 9 to 11 PM when the lights come back on to celebrate his great contributions to this site.

    There will never be another like him!
    It's a great day to be a Husker Fan!

    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I'm younger than that now.'

    It's gestures like this that truly distinguish this place from all other message boards out there Dave. Thank you.

    The View from the land of enchantment. Yes, I remember when Nebraska was known for great football and Johnny Carson, but now it's claim to fame is fighting over a football coach and a piece of pipe.
