Russell Joe Fine was born Oct. 30, 1949, in Tulsa, to the late Paul A. and Ruby (McMurtrey) Fine Sr. He died on Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2022, in Oklahoma City, at the age of 72 years, 10 months and 20 days. Russell and the former Ms. Sharon Lee Williams were united in marriage on Nov. 8, 1968, in Ada. This union was blessed with one daughter, Michelle.
Early in his life, Russell resided in the Sallisaw and Wewoka areas, prior to his family settling in Davis. Following his high school graduation from Davis, in 1967, he continued his education at East Central University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Business. Russell spent several years owning and operating Fine Family Clothing Stores in Pauls Valley and Ardmore, prior to spending time in Dallas working as an insurance adjuster. Russell and his family later returned to Davis, where he assisted with the family-owned clothing store, The Trading Center, in Sulphur. After his parents retired and sold the business, Russell then spent the remainder of his working career with Remmington Apparel doing service merchandising for large clothing stores across the U.S., retiring in 2015.
Russell spent much of his spare time playing golf, traveling, and reading. One of his most cherished enjoyments was spending time with his family, especially his grandsons and great-grandson.
