Russell C. Unger, Jr., 77, of Hubert, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 16, 2021 surrounded by his family. A native of Martinsburg, WV, he was the loving husband to Sherry Snelson Unger and the son of the late Russell C. Unger, Sr. and Pricilla Smith Unger. After graduating high school, Russell immediately enrolled in the military where he proudly served our country as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force. He worked for Mack Truck and was a member of Harvest Presbyterian Church. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing and hunting.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by his children, Amy Robinson (David) of Peletier and Russell “Rusty” Unger of Myrtle Beach, SC; grandsons, Sean Unger, Jacob Robinson and Wesley Robinson; sisters, Mary Ann Cain of Middleway, WV and Martha Ayo (Tommy) of Spotsylvania, VA.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Richard Unger and infant sister, Phyllis Unger.
A memorial service will be held at a later date in his home town in WV.
To know Russell, is to know his smile. He was always happy, always laughing and never stopped smiling.
