Default I have some bad news. Russ Barfield R.I.P.

I did a search and did not see any information on this. I was told by a Hollywood FL local, long time FL engine builder Russ Barfield passed away this morning. I do not have any details. I walked in his shop for the first time in the early 80's when I was 19 yrs. old. I felt like I was around royalty. Russ was the man. My prayers go out to the Barfield family and friends.

RIP You will be missed by many!

His 57 still is gorgeous and runs just as strong as it did back in the day.

Russ was one of the good old guys.. He was always nice to me over the years, going back to the late 70's, early 80's... Very sorry to hear about his death.
