William Russell

Mar. 16, 1931 – Oct. 10, 2015

During the happiest years of his life, Bill passed away, suddenly, as a result of an accidental fall. Bill had many careers, the last two being as a lawyer and a Brain Injury Case Manager. Bill loved living in Red Deer. He loved his home, his family, his wife and his life. One of his greatest sources of joy was music. He loved singing and playing a melodica, an accordion, a clarinet, the ukulele and a keyboard. Bill was a very proud member of the Ho-Downers band, where he had so many good friends and so much good fun. He loved performing, and he loved to talk about music, planes and just about anything else with his best friend, Leo. Those he loved who will never forget him are his wife of 42 years, Donna, as well as my ‘daughter’, our ex-daughter-in-law, Susan Stinson Grant and our stellar grandchildren, Zakery and Micaela Stinson and Jacob Stinson. (Bill’s four children were no longer a part of his life). Instead of a funeral service, we will celebrate Bill’s life at a private gathering next spring, as was his wish. A card of remembrance of him or an email would be lovely. Kindly forward them to Donna Stinson, Box 1113, c/o RED DEER ADVOCATE, 2950 Bremner Ave., Red Deer, AB T4R 1M9 or to donnastinson135@gmail.com
