“We Sell Service”
It was in 1934 that Joe Russell began his plumbing career as an apprentice with the Petit Galloway Company. After eight years of defense work in Maumelle, he joined the U.S. Navy in 1942 where he served two years. Joe then returned to the private sector as a plumber in San Diego, California.
After relocating back to Little Rock in 1949, Joe, along with his wife Cleo, established their first plumbing company: Joe Russell Plumbing Co. For 15 years, the business specialized in residential plumbing. The company outgrew its location on Cantrell Road and was moved to the Cunningham Lake address in 1965. In April of that year, Hayes LeMay joined the company and later married Marian, the Russell’s daughter, in 1966. The company’s name was changed to Russell & LeMay Plumbing and Heating, Inc. in 1975.
Hayes and Marian LeMay, down to the fourth generation, continue to serve Central Arkansas’s Plumbing and HVAC needs. We are grateful for the support of our great customers.
