Ruslan “Russ” Alekseenko, 42, of Lawrenceville, Georgia, went to be with the Lord on October 24, 2021.

Ruslan was born July 3rd, 1979 in Korosten, Ukraine to Anatoly and Nadezhda Alekseenko. He was the oldest of 8 siblings. On February 17, 2000, Ruslan married Nelya Kukharchuk with whom he had two children, Dennis and Isabella, Ruslan’s absolute pride and joy.

Ruslan’s family immigrated from Ukraine to the United States in March 1990. Taking an example from his own father, Ruslan worked hard to provide for his family. He leaves behind a trucking partnership that he was really proud of. As hard as Ruslan worked, he definitely enjoyed life. He was typically the life of the party wherever he went. He was lighthearted, kind and generous. He was always out and about and on the move. He did not like to sit still. He loved people and animals. Ruslan loved to laugh and was always trying to put a smile on the faces of those around him. He loved to spend time with his family and his friends. He made friends everywhere that he went. He loved hosting and would always make sure that everyone had a good time and had plenty to eat. He was the ultimate man’s man. He loved good food, fun people, all things with an engine and the finer things in life.

Russ will be remembered for his kind and generous spirit, his hilarious stunts, and his willingness to help people and animals at all times. His memory will be cherished and kept alive by his beloved wife of 21 years, Nelya, his adored children Dennis and Isabella, his parents Anatoly and Nadezhda, his brothers Igor and Oleg, his sisters Inna, Dina, Ilona, Vanda, and Christina, his massive extended family and by his friends.

The family will receive friends at McDonald and Son Funeral Home on Friday, October 29, 2021 from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm. The funeral service will be at New Life Church on Saturday, October 30, 2020 at 12:00 pm.
