Obituary


William Frederick Russell (Fred) was released from the tethers that bound him to this earth at the young age of 85 on the 20th day of January 2023.

He was lovingly cared for by those angels of mercy and patience at Windsor Elms Village, Fundy Terrace House 4 in Falmouth Nova Scotia. Freds kids will forever be grateful for their kindness in caring for their rascally Dad.

Fred was born in London Ontario and loved to regale us of his mischievous exploits as a young lad. He joined the Air Force reserves in his teens and went on to a much loved career as an Aero Engine Technician in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He loved to recount his exploits, stories and memories about his time in the Military and many times expressed how he wished he could go back and do it all over again. After retiring from the military he worked for a time in Public Service and finally as a Commissionaire. Throughout his life he also worked many side jobs, always chasing his next...dollar! He loved music, was a craftsman, could whistle a fair tune and had a wicked sense of humour. Fred's parents and younger siblings emigrated to New Zealand around 1964 where his brother Robert and Jim still reside.

Fred is survived by daughter Karen (Paul) Hill, daughter Laura (Keith) Neiley, daughter Jennifer (Steve) Rowan and son Jeffery (Diane) Russell. He was blessed with many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Freds life will be honoured privately by his children at a later date. A donation in his memory can be made to the Alzheimer Society.
