This is from my penturners forum: if this is in the wrong area please move it to a proper area.

I regret to inform the pen turning world that Russ Fairfield passed away on January 4th. He was 75 years old and passed peacefully. In honor of his many years of contributions to the woodturning and particularly the penturning community and with his wife Gerri’s permission, the Principally Pens chapter of the AAW is implementing the First Annual Russ Fairfield Memorial Pen Competition. Russ was the Secretary of the Principally Pens chapter and a long time AAW member. Details will follow but this “competition” is to be an annual event in honor of Russ and all of his contributions to the woodturning community.

Anyone who knew or watched his videos at http://www.woodturner-russ.com/Index.html knew what a generous and caring person he was. His videos have helped a large number of turners in many ways. Some here know his name and others don’t but I enjoyed his videos and his way of doing a ca finish on pens that I adapted to my own way of doing them. Rest in Peace Russ you will long be remembered by myself and others.
