After battling the effects of a brain aneurysm that left him in a coma for eight days, Russell Dunn died at approximately 4:15 p.m. in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, March 15, 2011.

As he expressly wished, the previous day Russ was disconnected from life support and moved to a hospice facility, where he died with family members and several of his children by his side. Russ will be flown to New York and buried next to his father.

Russ was deeply loved and will be truly missed by everyone who knew him in his adopted home of Bisbee, and beyond.

My friend Russ suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm on Monday, four days after his 53rd birthday. He’s at Barrows Neurological Institute in Phoenix. His family – his mother, brother, son Evan and son Dallas – are at his side.

I saw him in Tucson on Tuesday. He was in a coma and remains in one.

An operation on Wednesday cleared a brain clot and cleaned the aneurysm as best as was possible. All that is left now is to wait to see what, if any, neurological function returns. All our hopes and prayers are with him.
