Date: 20th November 2007.
Pinball historian and author Russ Jensen passed away on Saturday 10th November, aged 71.
Russ was a prolific author of pinball articles since the '70s making many of them available via his website and would happily reprint them for anyone who asked. He also made a massive contribution to the Internet Pinball Database, supplying many hundreds of pictures from his extensive archive.
He was a familiar face in pinball circles for many years and could often be seen at Pinball Expo diligently transcribing the seminars for future reference and to ensure the information they revealed was not lost to the pinball community.
Pinball News asked fellow long-time Expo attendee and pinball author Gary Flower to give his memories of Russ.
A mirror copy of Russ's website has been preserved by the good folks at the Internet Pinball Database in case his AOL account is closed and that version disappears. You can access it at: archive.ipdb.org/russjensen
