Jul 30, 1954 – Jan 7, 2018
Beloved Russell (Orange) passed away quietly on January 7, 2018 at the age of 62.
He leaves behind Donna, son Matthew (Jenn) and two lovely grandsons Jake and Kadyn, daughter Sami (Marc), Mother Audrey (Sam), Sister Gail (Lou), and Family.
Russ was born and raised on the Queen Charlottes and moved to Vancouver Island as a young man. First in Nanaimo, then to Port McNeill where he and wife Jackie started a family of their own. In the late 80’s they moved to Nanaimo and made it their home.
He was a very talented and skilled worker who readily used his abilities to help many friends in need.
He will be deeply missed in the community of Cedar where he was well known and respected.
As a Leo, Russell had the heart of a lion, and his work, family, and friends were his pride.
He will be deeply missed, however his spirit will be with us forever.
‘We love you Russ’
A Celebration of Life is planned for a later date.
