Russell A Lehocky, 66, of Libertyville, passed away suddenly and too soon June 21,2020. He was born December 11,1953 in Ironwood Michigan to his parents Ray and Rosemary. He is remembered for his enormous heart as light as a feather. He wished for a simpler world where people smiled and laughed a little bit more. Russell enjoyed friendship, music, good times, animals, and Michigan (Go Blue!). He made wherever he was sitting his happy place. He kept a fire burning for loved ones lost and suffered in silence. Russell gave so much and had so much more to give. He was loved, cherished, and will be missed. He is survived by his wife Susan; children Lauren and Stephen; siblings Rick (Melody) and Roberta Reid; his cat Zuzu, and endless friends. Friendly and caring. Quiet yet strong. Thoughtful and planned. Loyal and reverent. Funeral Mass will be 10AM Saturday June 27th at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 121 E Maple Ave, Libertyville.
