Russell « Rusty »‘s Obituary
Russell « Rusty » passed away on December 16, 2019, from an aggressive form of cancer, Metastatic Melanoma. Russell was a kind loving husband, father, brother and uncle. He will be greatly missed by his loving wife and soul mate Juanita Modeland; his daughters Auralee and Chantelle (Cam); his son Sheldon (Kate); his sisters Diane (Susan), Karen (Subhash), and Marian; as well as his grandsons, nieces and nephews. Russell loved nature, animals and all things outdoors. He studied Forestry at the University of British Columbia. In his work with the Department of Natural Resources, he was instrumental in planning several provincial parks throughout Saskatchewan. Russell loved life and kept active, working as a security officer in many facilities in, and around, Moose Jaw and Regina. Russell will be remembered for his gentle spirit, strength and determination to overcome life’s obstacles. We want to extend our gratitude to the staff of Dr. F.H Wigmore Hospital in Moose Jaw who provided excellent care and comfort in his final days. A Private Celebration of Russell’s life is planned for the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7. In living memory of Russell, a memorial planting will be made by Jones – Parkview Funeral Services.
