Obituary of Russell Flint
Our family chain is broken . . .
With deep and heavy sadness we announce the passing of
Russell John Flint
father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend,
on Friday February 8, 2019, at the age of 88,
surrounded by his family .
John took great pride in being an employee of the Canadian Pacific Railroad for over 40 years, starting at the age of 17. He was active in his life, he enjoyed cooking, hunting, fishing, and being a Mason. John had a keen sense of humour and was a great story teller. John had several dogs in his lifetime and they were always considered to be part of his family.
After retirement, John left Toronto’s west end to be closer to his family in Clarington. During retirement John took up the hobby of going to auctions and had the gift of refinishing furniture. He was widely known for his very low bids and laughing when he got a deal. Anyone that met him realized in a short period of time he was a character. John instilled on his family a core value system that defined who he was and that was a man that kept his promise, honoured commitment – a man of integrity.
His granddaughter Kimberley has committed herself to carrying on his tradition of handing out the Werther’s candies and bringing a smile to so many faces just as her grandfather did.
A special thank you to Dr. H. Williams, the nurses at Bowmanville – 2nd floor surgical unit for their gentle care and support.
A Celebration of Life will take place at the Orono Cemetery at a late date and will be posted. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Sick Kid’s Foundation, in memory of John’s great granddaughter « lsobel Celina Alldread’ through NORTHCUTT ELLIOTT FUNERAL HOME, 53 Division St. Bowmanville, with whom the arrangements have been entrusted.
« Missing someone is your heart’s way of reminding you that you loved them »
Dad’s Favourite Irish Blessing
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand
May God be with you and bless you
May you see your children’s children
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings
From this day forward
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Russell
