  • Azinta, our sincere condolences to you and your family. Our fond memories of the Luining family go back many years.

  • Dear Azinta & Family Our deepest condolences for your loss. Russell was such a gentle soul. In the 1980's I was privileged to work for Russell and his brother Cecil. Russell personally trained me as a door to door milkman. He was kind, patient and very considerate. He would always say "make sure you take a break." Outside of work he was a friend and fellow brother in Christ. I enjoyed our talks at work, at the cottage at Gull Lake, at Aglow and special services at Faith Temple where he graced us every once in awhile with Azinta. Apparently he was quite the running back at DMCI. He could easily have joined the Bombers with his brother but chose a different path. Now there are no limits as he is in the loving presence of his beloved Jesus and his dad and mom and two brothers. Love & prayers Pastor Rudy & Gina Fidel - Posted by: Rev.
