Christopher Lee Russell

Christopher Lee Russell departed this life on Earth for a far more beautiful home in heaven on Oct 31, 2020. Having been born April 23, 1972, his years were limited with us, saying goodbye at 48 years old.
Chris was an “old soul” since birth. He loved many things, most of all his family and friends. One of his favorite pastimes in life was exploring new places to see and dine. He enjoyed the finer things in life and admired the beauty of art, music, and design. Chris was special to all who loved and adored him. His sense of humor was contagious, and he could laugh about most anything. We are saddened to say goodbye to you on this earth but look forward to seeing you again one day.
Chris will be lovingly remembered by his children, Carter Berry Russell and Isabella Marie Russell. He is also survived by his mother, Jane and John Dees, of Mendenhall; his two sisters, Tina (Jeff) Roberts of Mendenhall; Mandy (Jason) Daniels, of Oakvale; special friend, Spencer Little, of Jackson; step-sisters, Carrye (Newt) Ishee, Allison (Ryan) White, Elizabeth Dees, all of Summerland; along with a host of nieces, nephews, and friends who loved him.
Chris was preceded in death by his father, Howard Lee Russell.
A service was held Nov. 3 at Tutor Funeral Home Chapel in Mendenhall, with interment following in Shivers Cemetery. Arrangements were entrusted with Tutor Funeral Home of Mendenhall.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations be made in his memory to MORA (MS Organ Recovery Agency), 4400 Lakeland Drive, Flowood, MS 39232.
