Russell Ayers, at 68
Russell Ayers, of Hull, died unexpectedly on Nov. 3, his 68th birthday. 
Mr. Ayers grew up in Hingham and raised his family in Plymouth. For many years, he lived in Hull where he enjoyed walking the beach and spending time with his closest friends. 
A proud U.S. Air Force veteran, he served during the Vietnam War and was a member of the American Legion.

He was the brother of Thomas Ayers of Florida, John Ayers Jr. of Lakeville, Donald Ayers of Peabody, Ronald Ayers of South Boston, Nancy Wade of Virginia, Gerald Ayers of North Carolina, Edward Ayers of Lunenburg, Kathleen D’Amico of Raynham, and the late Charles Ayers. 
Mr. Ayers loved to spend time with his grandchildren – Taylor, Benjamin, and Bailey – whom he adored.
