Russell John Burkhalter, age 62, of Virginia Beach, Virginia passed away at his home on Monday, April 6, 2020 surrounded by his family. Russell was born in Fitchburg, Massachusetts but had been a resident of Virginia Beach for the past 20 years.

He also leaves behind his much-loved extended family, Margarete Almy (Arne) of Columbus, Ga, and her sons, Peter and Larry Jr.; Eugene Wright Jr. (Cil) of Tucson, Az, and his daughter Sherri.

He was predeceased by his parents Edgar and Rena Burkhalter from Columbus, Ga.

Russell will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He loved to play golf and looked forward to his annual golf trip to Myrtle Beach. Devoted to his home town of Columbus, Ga. He stuck by his Atlanta Braves and Georgia Bulldogs teams.
