A down to earth, no nonsense guy. I remember his organizing trips for our boy scout troop to a behind the scene tour of Rikers and LaGuardia airport. It is a big loss. Best wishes to the family in this terrible time.

I am so very sorry and my sincere condolences to the Russell family. I worked with Steve at the Port Authority Police. Always a smile on his face, quick to help, and an amazing knowledge of what needed to be done. Steve was a gift to us all, and an example of how we all should live. I know we are better people because of our experiences with him. Prayers of the Russell family during this most difficult time.

Jane K, Honor Flight left a message on October 2, 2022:
I only knew Steve a short time, but I was graced by his presence on an Honor Flight just two weeks ago. We had the chance to chat over a frozen ice while waiting for everyone to return to the bus in Washington DC. I knew right away he was a good man. My deepest condolences to his family. The tribute video shows that he lived a good life. I hope you find solace in the memories. Godspeed, Steve. I am humbled to have known you.

My sincere condolences to the Russell Family. I worked with Steve at JFK airport for many years. I can say that I have never met such a wonderful person as Steve. He was always a shining star and brought joy to the office when he was there. Steve was always to first to step up to offer his help or do work outside his usual remit. He was the most caring, giving individual. Sadly, taken away way too soon from those who love him. I feel blessed to have known Steve.
Jasmine Ramos left a message on September 30, 2022:
My deepest condolences to the Russell family. I worked with Steve at MacArthur airport, he was a dear friend of mine. I used to call him my “work dad.” He always put a smile on everyone’s face and you could never have a bad day when we was around. The biggest hero I have ever met with the kindest heart who truly impacted so many lives. He shared so many of his stories with me and I will be forever grateful to have known him. I will miss you my “GIF” buddy. Rest easy!
