Russell was the Deputy Assessor with the Avoyelles Parish Assessors Office and retired after 36 years of service. He loved his job as Deputy Assessor but more so, the people of Avoyelles Parish. Russell never meet a stranger and would go out of his way to assist anyone in need. After retirement, he continued to enjoy working his cattle, raising his chickens and tending to his multiple feline friends. Russell was a very young 84 years old and remained active to the very end of this life. He will be sadly missed by his family, friends and neighbors.
Mr. Veade was preceded in death by his parents, Percy P. Veade and Marie Axie Ducote Veade.
Those left to cherish his memory are his son, Gary John Veade of Baton Rouge and also survived by grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
