Sad to hear. I worked at Adventure as a second job for a number of years when I first emigrated to Canada in late 1980's early 1990's. Many evenings and weekends running their Multi's and Hospital Menus. I found Russ and everyone of the staff I encountered welcoming. I remember specifically the "work outing/picnic" at Toronto island with my young family. One of very few places I have worked that hold fond memories. Learned a few work and life lessons along the way.
