We have known Russel and Bonnie since the early 60s. We lived just down the street from them in Summit, NJ prior to us being transferred to the new Bell Labs building in Holmdel. Russell had a keen eye for locating items on sale, and would always call me with that info. In those beginning years we were on a fairly tight budget, so saving a few bucks here and there was quite important.
Over the following years we remained close friends, and will miss Russell very much.
We send our most sincere condolences to Bonnie and all of the Prielipp family.

It is truly sorry to learn of Russell's passing.
He was my room mate at BTL from 1963 on to Holmdel. We hiked together and made apple wine from the cider we brought back from the Delaware water gap. Then sailed together and attended Power Squadron classes. You both were great friends even getting together at your house and in Houston many years after BTL.
Our fond best blessings to you and he will always be in my best memories.
