Obituary of Russell Wyman John McCutcheon
McCutcheon, Russell Wyman John, born in 1923 in Harrington, Quebec, passed away peacefully at his home at Portal Village on July 24 after a short illness. Named after his own father, who drowned before Russell was born, he is survived by his daughter Sylvia McCutcheon and son Russell McCutcheon (wife, Marcia Hay-McCutcheon), as well as his son-in-law, Bill Ransky, his three grandchildren, Lisa Klein, Stephan McCutcheon, and Michael Ransky, and his two great-grandchildren, Madeleine and Clarissa Klein. He was pre-deceased by his wife of 50 years, Claire (in 1996), his oldest daughter Ingrid Ransky (in 2006), and his oldest son Elliott McCutcheon (in 1996). Russell was the second oldest of eight siblings (of which only one younger sister, Geraldine Peterson, remains), who volunteered for service in World War II, landing when supplies began coming ashore on the beaches of Normandy, and who returned from Europe to marry, start a family, and hold a variety of jobs throughout his life. Moving to Port Colborne in 1952, he drove dump trucks when the tunnels were dug for the Niagara Falls hydroelectric project, was Head Janitor at Port Colborne High School, a milk-man (with a horse and wagon) on the east side for what was then Port Colborne Dairy, and, with Claire, bought a gas station in 1968 on the corner of Davis and Killaly—Russell’s Esso—where he was well known for a quick joke and a generous smile. Although he quit school after grade five to support his family, he had a life-long fascination for space travel and science, enjoyed building balsawood models, completed his own home-built airplane, earned his pilot’s license at the Welland Airport and, later in life, flew an ultra-light around the region. He will be missed by his friends and family, though they’re grateful for his nearly 96 years. Arrangements entrusted to DAVIDSON FUNERAL HOME 135 Clarence St. Port Colborne.
