Russell R. Mobley, II


Left this life on August 11, 2019 in Gypsum, Colorado after a UTV accident.  Russell died unexpectedly, doing what he loved in our mountains, where he lived with his wife and step-children.  

He was born on August 24, 1971, in Texarkana, TX.  He graduated from Tupelo High School, in Tupelo MS, in 1990.   He graduated from Texas A&M University in 1994 with a major in Computer Science.  He pursued a career in Computer Technology first with Nortel in Dallas and then as a contractor with a third-party vendor in Denver, CO.  
Russell was always active in sports – baseball and soccer during his early school years and then concentrating mainly on soccer.  Russell and his high school friends Ralph and Amy, drove to Colorado for winter break his first year in college and he fell in love with the state.  He loved skiing and the blue sky and the mountains and the true seasons.  He lived in a basement apartment with his friend Susanna for several years.  Eventually, he bought a condo in the middle of downtown Denver – The Spire.  2015 was a really good year for Russell:  he began working for his current employer, AutoDesk, and has been so blessed by the organization.  Then, the best time of his life came when he met Dana.  And his life for the past four years has been the happiest of his whole life.  
Russell is survived by a host of the most amazing, caring and loving friends anyone could ever hope for, his Mother-in-law Cathy Spears and brother-in-law Duston Spears, Nephews Shawn Ellis, Stephen Ellis, Seth Ellis, Niece, Megan Ellis; his step-Dad, Pete Romanyak (and family: Colin, Jennifer, Shelby, Morgan, Kylie, Logan Carrell); his brother-in-law Michael Ellis, his sister Cristy Ellis, his step-children: Grayson Hyatt and Aberle Hyatt; his mother Susan Romanyak and the love of his life, Dana Hyatt-Mobley.
Russell would want all of us to be happy for the memories, in keeping his love for life alive in our own hearts, always and forever.
A Nursery will be provided during the service on Saturday.

We met Russ a month ago on our annual trip to Co. Of course went riding and had an awesome time with he and Dana. His smile was so contagious and his love for adventure and fun were inspiring. He will be truly missed. Our love and prayers for his family and all of his close friends.

We are so saddened by this news. We both worked with Russell at BNR/Nortel and always enjoyed his company. He also traveled to Nortel soccer tournaments overseas with Nadim a few times and played on the Nortel team. He was a such a great guy and we often spoke about him and our wonderful days at Nortel. We pray for the family to give them strength with the loss and pray that Russell rests in Eternal Peace.

Russell was a great member of our team at Nortel in the '90s and was someone I enjoyed very much both professionally and personally. He was clearly gifted technically, and worked for us when he made the move from Dallas to Denver. I was always proud to have had a work environment where he could move to where he wanted to be (Colorado) and still do the same job. He absolutely loved it there. I'm so sorry that we have all lost him so prematurely and I wish nothing but blessings and best wishes to his friends and family.

My deepest sympathies to Russell's family and friends. I had the opportunity to work with Russell at Nortel before he moved to Colorado, and was lucky to play soccer with him and not against him. May God bless he and his family.

I remember when he & his family lived in Tupelo, MS; they lived down the street from my family. He hung out with my brother, Kenneth Wolfe. I know he'll be missed; I was saddened when I heard.
