Russell Norman

July 23, 1954 ~ November 22, 2015

Born in Prince Albert, Sask. Russell lived in many areas including Fort St. John, Hudson’s Hope, Victoria and Duncan.

Russell was a quiet, kind man with a generous heart. He enjoyed playing both guitar and piano. When the family gathered we found him to be a great game player. He met life’s challenge of schizophrenia with dignity until he succumbed to cancer.

Flowers are gratefully declined, please consider a donation in Russell’s name to the Cowichan Valley Basket Society, 5218 Gorden St., Duncan, V9L 3V9.

Over the past many years Russell used and appreciated this service, where he often went for soup and sandwiches.

The family would like to thank Dr. Malherbe and VIHA Mental Health staff for their support and continued care.

Survived by his mother Bejay Kenney of Nanaimo. Sisters: Phyllis and Shirley and brother Ross, also nieces and nephews.
