Russell Loren “Russ” Killen, 60, of Springdale, died Monday, June 18, 2018 at Circle of Life Hospice. He was born January 26, 1958 in Hobbs, New Mexico to Horace Ward Killen and Thelma (Myer) Killen Norman. Russ enjoyed working on his Mustang and he loved Nascar. He was the type of person that would give anyone the shirt off his back and he could always find humor in anything but, above all was a devoted father, grandfather and friend.
He is survived by his daughter, Lisa Garcia; adopted son, Jonathan Killen; three grandchildren, Jhonatan Garcia, Victoria Garcia, Christian Garcia; two brothers, Harlan and Tom King; one sister, Judy Welch; and best friend and mother of his children, Julie Kalinowski and many friends that he called family. Russ was preceded in death by his parents, stepfather, William “Bill” Norman and a brother, Steven King.
A memorial service was Friday, June 22, at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made to Circle of Life Hospice.
