Russell F. Pound, Jr., 85, of Bloomfield, beloved husband of Carol (Dunning) Pound, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 29, 2017. Born in Plainfield, NJ to the late Russell Sr. and Ruth (Moffit) Pound, he served his country proudly with the US Army during the Korean War and was a West Hartford resident for many years before recently settling in Bloomfield. Russell was a banker with Connecticut National Bank, formerly Hartford National Bank, for many years before retiring as a Senior Vice President & Manager Commercial Operations Division. He was very active in his community, a member of the Harford and Mystic Lions Clubs and a past President of the Ledyard Lions Club, West Hartford Chamber of Commerce, West Hartford Rotary Club, served as trustee of the Children’s Museum and on the Executive Committee of the Operations Division of American Bankers Association, American Legion and the Old Guard in West Hartford.

In his spare time he had enjoyed motorcycling, fishing, admiring the water on the lake, playing dominos, traveling, golfing, photography and was a Civil War buff, but his true passion was his family, especially his grandchildren, to whom he was known as “Poppy”.
