Cole Thomas Russell, 15, of Mt. Vernon, passed from this life on Monday June 3, 2013.


Cole was approaching his sophomore year at Mt. Vernon High School where he had been on the wrestling team, football team and track team. He enjoyed work and was a volunteer with Point Township and Black Township Fire and Rescue. Cole loved to hunt, fish and target shoot but more than anything he loved to help others.
