Hello team, My condolences to all. Russel and I have had some very meaningful meetings together over the last 50 years. Sad to see him go but I am sure that I will catch him up in a few years time. Kind regards, Woody.

Our Sincerest condolences to Russ's Family,
We feel privileged to have met Russ and felt honoured when he was able to travel over to Shantytown to attend the NZ Drillers Federation Conference in 2015. Attached is a photo of three of the eldest foundation members who attended the DRILL2015 Conference, cutting the 40th Anniversary Cake. Russ's contribution to the NZ drilling industry has been massive.

On behalf of the NZ Drillers Federation I would like to pass on our condolences to the family on the passing of our life member Russ Harris. Unfortunately I did not hear until afterwards or we would have sent representatives to the service. Our thoughts are with you all
