Remembering Russ

Today we are mourning the loss of our good friend and mentor – Russ Myers who passed away on July 1st after a courageous battle with cancer.  Russ was a build mentor for the Daredevils from the early years of the team throughout our 2017 season.  His patience with the students and willingness to share his vast knowledge of machining and building will be sorely missed.  Russ believed in the Daredevils and always strived to see the team succeed.  This year Russ was the recipient of the Woody Flowers Award, which is given to a mentor who inspires students to communicate and work as a team.  Russ was an inspiration to every student and mentor as well as a great friend to everyone who has had the opportunity to work with him.

Additional information will be forthcoming.


  1. Condolences from Team 2530. We admire his dedication to the Duluth East Daredevils and his inspiration to all.

    Russ was an amazing mentor. He was well loved by team and team families. He touched many lives in the robotics world and outside. Peace and grace for all who knew and loved him.

  3. Ann M. Todd says:

    Prayers and thoughts to Russ’s family, co-workers at Archers and the whole Daredevils Team of Duluth East. Rest in Peace Russ, you will be forever watching
    and guiding over the Duluth East Daredevils.
