Memorial for Russ Moffett

It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Russ Moffett, an American hero with a demonstrated passion for his country, his family and the well-being of our nation's military and their families.

Russell N. "Russ" Moffett of Petersburg, Virginia, passed away unexpectedly on October 24, 2018, at the age of 71. Russ was born in Newark, New Jersey, to the late Nelson and Martha Moffett. Russ was a retired United States Air Force Chief Master Sergeant having served during the Vietnam and Gulf Wars. When the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) was created in 1991, Russ served as the Agency's first senior enlisted advisor until his retirement from the Air Force in 1994. With DeCA he provided management guidance to the Agency's commander/director and staff, worked support issues with the Department of Defense and Congress, visited and reviewed commissary operations worldwide and served as the chief adviser on the health and morale of over 3,000 enlisted Army, Navy and Air Force members in 14 countries around the world. He recently served as Vice President, Commissary Affairs and Member Relations for the American Logistics Association. While Russ was dedicated to his career and country, his devotion to his wife and family was unrivaled.

Russ Moffett is survived by his wife, Bonita M. Moffett, the director of DeCA's East Area; children, Justin McCullum (Alison), Derek McCullum and Megan McCullum; grandchildren Devon, Tatiana and Penelope; and great-granddaughter, Scarlett; sister, Cathy Kaczmarek (Gary); brothers, Nelson Moffett (Earlene) and Paul Moffett; and numerous nieces and nephews.
