Ian died peacefully at home in Cobble Hill on July 25. Born and raised in Red Deer, Ian was predeceased by his parents John (“Jack”) and Gilda Russell and sister Moyra. He is survived by his loving wife Cathy Campbell and his daughter Patricia Russell (William Ward) of Atlanta, Georgia, of whom he was so proud. He is also loved and missed by his Parsons cousins in Alberta, the Campbell family and many close friends in BC, Alberta and Mexico.
An avid skier, hiker and traveller, Ian also enjoyed a fine wine or a smooth, well-aged tequila and asked that friends raise a glass in his memory. Special thanks to Dr. Jackson, Drs. Duta and Nielsen, the community home care nurses and respite care staff for your compassionate and incomparable support. Flowers gratefully declined. No service by request.
Soar with the eagles, Ian, and safe travels.
