Age 63 of Lino Lakes, MN, passed away on November 27, 2023. 

Russell Lee Williams was born October 24, 1960, in Omaha, Nebraska to the union of Emmit and Willie Lee Williams. He was a long-time member of Peace Tabernacle Assembly of God church.

Russell attended Highland Park Sr. High School. He was involved in numerous sports, and activity clubs. He continued his education to become a Master Barber, where he provided haircuts and laughter to his clientele, which included numerous professional athletes, like his favorite Football Team, the Minnesota Vikings. He also worked at Federal Cartridge, where he had a prayer bond, with the "Band of Brothers".

Russell took great pride in his family and friends and knew how to brighten a room with his humor and personality. He was a die-hard fan of the NFL MN Vikings (he made the loses look and sound good). He was staying on that bandwagon riding it out. SKOL! Russell was loved by those who knew him. He will be truly and deeply missed by his family, friends, and every person he met.

Russell was preceded in death by his father, Emmit Williams; his brother, Keith; and sister, Matlyn "Tina". 
He leaves behind to cherish his memory his loving wife of 22 years, Cresandra Paige Williams; his mother, Willie Lee Williams; children, Shae Noyola, Keisha Williams, Russell Williams II "R2", Rachel Carlson Williams, Daniel Robbins, and Anthony (Rebecca) Robbins; brothers, Emmitt Williams, Michael (Melissa) Williams, and Titus (Shontel) Williams; sisters, Gwen Williams, Linda Williams, and Kristi Williams; grandchildren, Dean Davis Jr, Mariana Noyola, Markell Ross Jr, Kavail Washington, Khavayiah Washington, Ramero, Daniel, Jayden, Jamisyn, Jase, Jordan, Kamron, Anaja, Liam, Madison, and Edison; great-grandchild, Leilani Robbins; his dogs, LeBron, and Bruno; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins, extended family, and beloved friends.


My best friend, my Knight in Godly armor, thank you for following your heart which led you to me. Until the Lord reunites us, I will try to be strong, and let not your tremendous love for me be in vain. I will love you forever and ever! TOODLES
Thank you, Lord, for sending Russell to find me, and thank you Mom Williams for raising such a wonderful man. 
Your Loving Wife, Cresandra
