A longtime attorney from Carmel who died unexpectedly this week will be laid to rest Sunday.

The visitation and funeral for Carl Joseph Russell, 63, are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Visitation will be from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday at Flanner and Buchanan - 325 E. Carmel Dr., Carmel.  A celebration of the life will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday in Orchard Park Presbyterian Church, 1065 E. 106th St., Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis legal community was shocked by the Krieg DeVault LLP partner’s sudden death Wednesday.

Russell had a 33-year legal career. He graduated from Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 1980. While in law school he served as bailiff to the Hon. Jeffrey V. Boles in Hendricks Circuit Court.

He worked as an assistant U.S. attorney and later practiced as a partner at Bose McKinney & Evans LLP and most recently with his wife, Elizabeth G. Russell (Betsy) as a partner at Krieg DeVault LLP, where he served as legal counsel to the firm.

Joe is survived by his wife, Betsy; son, Marc Russell; sister, Sara Edwards; and four nieces and nephews, Bryan and Kevin Beswick, and Bob and Meg Hammond.

His obituary describes him as a true patriot; a lover of history, especially all things dealing with the Civil War; and an avid hunter. He also never met a dog he did not like.
 
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Russell’s name to Orchard Park Presbyterian Church or the Humane Society of Hamilton County.

  1. It's an appreciable step taken by the government to curb the child abuse that are happening in the schools. Employees in the schools those are selected without background check can not be trusted. A thorough background check on the teachers or any other other new employees must be performed to choose the best and quality people. Those who are already employed in the past should also be checked for best precaution. The future of kids can be saved through this simple process. However, the checking process should be conducted by the help of a trusted background checking agency(https://www.affordablebackgroundchecks.com/).

  3. You need to look into Celadon not paying sign on bonuses. We call get the run

  4. My parents took advantage of the fact that I was homeless in 2012 and went to court and got Legal Guardianship I my 2 daughters. I am finally back on my feet and want them back, but now they want to fight me on it. I want to raise my children and have them almost all the time on the weekends. Mynparents are both almost 70 years old and they play favorites which bothers me a lot. Do I have a leg to stand on if I go to court to terminate lehal guardianship? My kids want to live with me and I want to raise them, this was supposed to be temporary, and now it is turning into a fight. Ridiculous

  5. Here's my two cents. While in Texas in 2007 I was not registered because I only had to do it for ten years. So imagine my surprise as I find myself forced to register in Texas because indiana can't get their head out of their butt long enough to realize they passed an ex post facto law in 2006. So because Indiana had me listed as a failure to register Texas said I had to do it there. Now if Indiana had done right by me all along I wouldn't need the aclu to defend my rights. But such is life.
