Russell was married to Blanche (Force) Starn and is buried at Crown Hill Cemetery in Orrville, Wayne County, Ohio.

Update. I was able to obtain the information I was looking for. Russell died 12/22/1911 in Detroit, MI. The cause of death was " gas tank explosion". His remains were transferred by Railroad from Detroit to Crown Hill Cemetery. Interment was 12/26/1911.

Death certificates are usually the only source for cause of death, although it may be mentioned in an obituary if it was something out of the ordinary (accident, etc)

A quick glance at Ohio State Law says the funeral director is required to register the death, and obtain the burial permit, so if he is buried in Ohio, his death should be registered there (even if it occurred out of state)

See Ohio Department of Health for details on requesting copies of vital records: http://www.odh.ohio.gov/vs

Also I see no mention in the Ohio Revised Code ( Sect 3705.23) that medical information for death certificates is to be redacted (it is on birth records.)
