He was preceded in death by his father, Daniel Edward Russell, Sr., a son, Timothy Holliday, Jr. and his niece, Jacy Riley.

Lance's memory will live on in the hearts of those he leaves behind.  They include his wife, Kala Russell of Silver Creek; his daughter, Scarlet Daley (Gage) of Brookhaven; 2 sons, Andrew Riojas and Colton Riojas, both of Silver Creek; his mother, Linda Russell of Silver Creek; 2 sisters, Pam Smith of Silver Creek, Amy Riley of New Hebron; 1 brother, Daniel Russell, Jr. of Lucedale and his mother-in-law, Dawn Cody of New Hebron.  Lance also leaves to mourn his passing a host of nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
