The family of Russell G. Espinosa announces his pἀssing on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, with heavy hearts and a lifetime of memories. Russell Blake was Victoria (Espinosa) Blake and Arturo Blake’s youngest child. Russell was born on October 18, 1959, in East Chicago, Indiana.
He spent much of his youth in Joplin, Missouri, with his siblings Richard and Marsha. Having earned a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Management from the University of Missouri-Rolla, Russell is now a graduate.
Before beginning a long and prosperous career, he went on to get a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering. Russell started as an engineer, but his perseverance and diligence propelled him into senior leadership positions. Russell persisted as a servant leader, displaying bravery to address issues and promote change.
In addition, he held the position of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers President of the Board, where he mentored and inspired upcoming engineers. His mother’s tireless efforts and a teacher who believed in him inspired him.
Russell lived in service to the Lord Jesus Christ and was a devoted spouse and parent. In addition to receiving inspiration to study the Bible, he followed a calling to oversee missions. Russell was a kindhearted and modest donor to numerous nonprofits.
He enjoyed playing basketball, traveling, the outdoors, being with his family, and listening to live music. Russell had a reputation for being a clever person. His moral character, sage advice, and positive outlook made him a role model among his family and friends.
Left to cherish Russell’s memory are his wife, Lidia Espinosa; his daughter, Karin Espinosa; his sons, Mario (Ayrielle) Espinosa and Alejandro Espinosa by Maria Kriechel; and his daughter, Natalie Rollo; grandsons Sebastian Rollo-Iozzo and Anthony Espinosa; brothers, Richard (Ruth) Blake and Arturo (Kippie) Blake; and sisters, Marsha (Angel) Ruiz and Rhonda (Wayne) Jazwierski.
