Bowie County says goodbye to the “Mayor of Malta”

By Heather Russell
Staff Reporter

I had the privilege of knowing Hootie Russell my whole life.  
When I was born to his oldest son Mike, our family lived next door to him on one side of him and my grandmother and my Uncle Doug and his family lived next door.  He kept his boys close.  
As his second grandchild, some of my earliest memories are of him tilling the garden between our houses, driving the tractor, and leading the music at Malta Baptist Church.          Hootie loved music.  He loved the classics, country music, and of course, gospel.  He was constantly singing or whistling, and boy, could he whistle.  He didn’t whistle like you or I would - he curled his tongue and warbled like a song bird.  Legend is that he learned how to whistle that way because he entered a contest at school where he ate crackers and then tried to whistle, and whistling through your tongue was a sure-fire way to win.
