PEPPERELL, MA - Beloved father, grandfather, and great grandfather.

Russell Williams passed away peacefully at the age of 85 years old on May 13th, 2020 at Heywood Hospital in Gardner Mass. Russell’s journey began on August 28, 1934, to his late parents, Florence and Albert Prince. Russell was a child at heart, in so many ways. He never let his age get in the way of going on fun adventures with his friends and family. He was truly the life of the party at any family event and especially enjoyed going on trips to York beach in the summer time. Russell also had a huge love for all animals, especially his birds.


Russell is survived by his two daughters, Joy Whitcomb, and Cheryl Dunham, his son in law James Whitcomb, his three grandchildren Michael Dunham, Nicole Whitcomb, Amanda Allen Butler, & her husband Dale Butler, his great grandchildren Katherine, and Claire. As well as his best friend and neighbor Pat Burke.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a celebration of life will be held at a later date when family and friends can publicly attend.
