Russell VanVoorst of Reynolds Indiana passed away on November 14th 2010.  Russell was the ripe young age of 86.  Most of us only hope to make it that long in life.  Russell was a special man who had a large impact on several people in and out of the horsepulling industry.  He began pulling in 1948 and always seemed to like  the big boys.  He moved from Indiana to Bear Lake Michigan in 1961 and resided there for over 11 years.  He than moved back to Indiana in 1972.  He teamed up with Benny Reed in 1984 to pull the record load of 4575 on the Dynamometer Truck at the Hillsdale Fair pull in Michigan.  He last pulled in 1984.  Russell was also a Veteran and as a young lad was drafted in the service in 1944 to fight in WWII and than went on to Japan & the Philippines.  Thank you for your service to our country Mr. VanVoorst.  Your a hero in our eyes and you will be missed by many!
