Russell H. Mawson, 75, of Villas, N.J., part-time office manager at the Greater Wildwood Hotel Motel Association since 2000, died at the Atlantic City campus of AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center on Sunday, Jan. 19, following a stroke.

Mr. Mawson worked at the association after retiring from a career as a machinist and supermarket manager.

"Even when he didn't have to go to work" in the Wildwood office, "he would go over to check to make sure that things were running smooth," his wife, Marie, said.

Born in Philadelphia, Mr. Mawson graduated from Frankford High School and, after working for a dyeing firm in Northeast Philadelphia, was a machinist with what is now Honeywell International Inc.

In the 1960s, he was a night shift manager for Shop 'n Bag and Penn Fruit supermarkets in Northeast Philadelphia before becoming a manager at the Shop 'n Bag in North Cape May, his wife said.

Mr. Mawson was a machinist for Wetler Corp. in Pennsauken in the 1970s and 1980s before retiring as a machinist for P&M Industries in Thorofare.

Mr. Mawson was a veteran of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.

Besides his wife of 42 years, he is survived by stepsons Glenn and Keith Milke, stepdaughter Cheryl Curry, six grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.

A viewing was set from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Jan. 25, at the McGuinness Funeral Home, 34 Hunter St. Woodbury, N.J. 08096, before a noon funeral service there, with interment in Woodbury Memorial Park.
