Russell M. A. Quinn, a resident of Wickenburg since 1936, died on Sunday, February 21 at the veteran's hospital in Prescott. He was 77.

Mr. Quinn, who was born in Ontario, Canada, was a charter member of the Desert Caballeros, a member of the Saddle Club, the Roundup Club, and the Masonic Lodge. He was active in civic affairs for several years.

He drove for the National Trailways bus line when he came to Wickenburg and helped test and introduce the first double-decker buses, now called scenic cruisers.

He served with the U.S. Air Force in World War II.

In Wickenburg he ran various businesses including a laundry service, a car dealership, and a rent-a-car service.

He also ran a tour service at Vulture Mine and did historic research of the area, including collecting old photographs, documents, and taped conversations with older citizens.

His dream was to have a historical record in book form so that children could learn about the history of the area.

For the past eight years he and his wife lived on a ranch near Congress.

He is survived by his wife, Martha; a daughter, Linda Howland, Prescott; a son Larry Quinn, Spartanburg, S.C.; a sister, Louise Lawrence of Ontario, Canada, and five grandchildren.

Memorial services will be held in the Wickenburg Masonic Lodge Hall on Saturday, Feb. 27 at 3 p.m.
