Timothy "big Russ" Russert Passes away

Statement from the Russert family on the passing of Timothy Joseph Russert – grandfather of NBC’s Luke Russert, father of the late Tim Russert:

“It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Timothy Joseph Russert. While he was affectionately known to the world as “Big Russ,” he carried no more important nor meaningful titles than those of father, grandfather, great-grandfather, patriot and friend. He passed peacefully with his family at his side from natural causes at the age of 85.

We warmly thank all those who were inspired by his life and his lessons.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Alzheimer’s Association so that the world may move closer to finding a cure for this sad affliction.

We ask for privacy as funeral arrangments are pending.”
