    Ron--

    I'm glad I met your brother at the 2007 Racers Reunion. He seemed to be enjoying it.

    Rest in peace RUSS.

    Ron:

    As others have mentioned, I also met Russ at the first DePue reunion, as well as you. Nice to get to finally meet and see folks you have heard your whole boat racing life about.

    I really enjoyed, and will miss, the few times he and I bantered back and forth on the "Pepper" thread. I would have like to have had the opportunity to visit with him about his days and experience's with the Meyer/Drake Offy engines, as I have always been a big fan of that type racing, both dirt and hard surface track. I can't imagine how much pleasure (and probably headaches also) that must have given him to be involved with many of those great drivers of that time with those engines.

    RIP Russ....
