    From Jim Briggs email December 24, 2019:

    On Christmas Eve, at 2:55pm, CVMG member & friend to many, Russ Nighswander, succumbed to the injuries incurred from his collision with a deer last week & passed away. It is believed that he never regained consciousness.

    No further details are known at this time.

    Please include thoughts for Russ, his daughter Tammy & those close to him, as his passing adds a new dimension to what should be a joyous time of year.

    Godspeed Russ.

    Just wanted to let everyone know Russ has 2 wonderful daughters. Tammy as Jim mentioned above as well as Cindy.

    Russ was a friend or acquaintance to many people. Always there to give assistance or guidance when called upon.

    He will be missed by so many.
