Russell was born on November 21, 1905 in Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania to Claude and Blanche Carey Arnts. He had an older sister Marian.

Russell was raised in Tunkhannock and then Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. When he was in his early 20s, he was living with his father in Palisades Park, New Jersey working as a clerk in a hotel.

On October 1, 1932 Russell married Alice Von Raiger in Manhattan, New York. It did not appear that they had any children. By 1942, the couple seems to have been divorced.

On April 1, 1942 in Newark, New Jersey Russell enlisted in the United States Army to serve during WWII. He noted that he was single and without dependents.

Russell married Renee Neidlinger sometime after 1942, although it is not certain when. It could have even been after the death of Renee's first husband in 1963. What is known is that the couple eventually settled in Renee's hometown of Westbrook, Connecticut.

Russell passed away in Westbrook, Connecticut on March 14, 1986 at the age of 80.
