Russell W. Resendez, Age 59. Beloved partner of Ann Morici. Dear brother of L.E. Shearer, Cynthia (Gregory) Brend, the late Stephen Conforti and the late Veronica Resendez. Fond uncle of Tracy (Chris), Rachel, Tim (Deanna), Veronica, Rebecca (Brandon) and Dan. Great uncle to five nieces and two nephews. Russell was a loving partner, brother, uncle, great uncle and a great friend to many. He was an accomplished musician/performer and lead singer of his band Inertia. He started playing guitar at ten years old with his brother Steven, which turned into a lifelong passion for music. Russell had many interests in life. You could always find him on the golf course or at the OTB; otherwise, he was at home with Ann listening to the Beatles, playing his guitar or watching football. He was a kind, generous, gentle soul who will be sorely missed by all of us. Memorial visitation Thursday March 18 from 4:00 p.m. until time of service 6:30 p.m. at Cumberland Chapels, 8300 W. Lawrence Ave., Norridge. Funeral Info: 708-456-8300 or

Thanks for the many years of music. I enjoyed jamming along with you to many a Beatles tune and one of your favorites by a band called Moxy "Out of the darkness". The band upstairs just got another member, crank it up and jam brother. RIP Russ. Your brother in music.....I´ll always think of you when I’m playing. Dan Mytnik

Thank you Russell for being such a wonderful friend. I'll always remember how much we laughed together and how kind you were. I pray that the Lord has you cradled in his arms. Keep singing in heaven!!!

Our condolences. Russell was a good friend from the old Albany Park neighborhood. My brother Dave was in the same grade as Russell, I was a couple years younger but as a fellow musician I often hung out with Russel to jam together. Many times we played Beatles tunes,
golfed together and just hung out. I remember when
his band Inertia played at River Park outside by the
Pool. He had on his news boy hat and bell bottoms, they pulled in a great crowd and played some great tunes. The band upstairs now has another fellow
Jam artist to add to the music. Crank it up Russ and play us a tune. You always loved that Moxy song “Out of the
Darkness”. I’ll play it down here for you.

RIP and thanks for your friendship and the music.

Dan and Lisa Mytnik
