Amos R. “Russ” Case Jr., age 77 of Wallingford, CT (formerly of Berlin, CT and South Paris, ME), ascended to a better place on Feb. 10, 2022. A 1962 graduate of Berlin High School, Russ was a proud employee of SNET for 30yrs. In 1966, he married the love of his life, Cecile Cormier, and together, they raised two children, Tamara (Case) Munger of Wallingford, and James Case of Wethersfield. As a family, they would vacation at their Camp in Maine, boating, swimming, fishing, and relaxing. He was an avid gun collector and enjoyed hunting. Upon his retirement from SNET in 1995, he and Cecile moved to Maine so he could pursue his life goals of extended relaxation at their Camp, fishing, spending time with their schnauzers, and lovingly complaining about his Red Sox. Pepere, as he was known to his grandchildren, would hold court on his Camp porch, taking pictures, directing the swimming and boating traffic, and surveying his Kingdom with his binoculars. His health declined over the last few years, giving him less and less time at Camp, but in recent weeks he was able to move back to Connecticut to spend his remaining days with his family. A funny and engaging soul, Russ entertained those that he came in contact with, whether with a glib quip, a sassy remark, or just a smile. He is predeceased by his parents, Martha (Riggott) Case, and Amos R. Case Sr. Left to mourn his passing are his life-long love, Cecile (Cormier) Case, his daughter Tamara (Case) Munger and her husband Scott, his son James Case and his wife Joan, his grandchildren Mitchell and Sydney Munger, Jocelyn and Alexander Case, Kaley and Natalie Wilson, and his dog, Elsa. Services will be held on Saturday, Feb. 19, from 10am until 12pm at Erickson-Hansen Funeral Home of Berlin, 111 Chamberlain Hwy in Berlin.
