We are sad to report that Kitchener singer/songwriter Lynn Russwurm (and father of musician Lance Russwurm) passed away on June 27, 2016. He left an amazing legacy in country music as a performer, songwriter, DJ, producer, collector, promoter historian and retailer.  Our condolences to his family, friends and fans.

There was a wonderful outpouring of love from Facebook.  Here are a few quotes:

"Lynn Russwurm was such a good friend and such an accomplished singer and songwriter,"

"I will remember Lynn as a gentle, always positive, smiling man"

"His contributions to Canadian Country Music history are respected and honored."

"He was a true country gentleman and such a love of country music"

The family has asked for donations to the Kidney Foundation or the Alzheimer’s Society in his honour.
