RUSSELL: Norman W. Russell of Brandon, MB passed away with family by his side on Wednesday, July 20, 2022. He was born June 5, 1925, in Dauphin, MB to Alexander and Mary who had six children: Ann, Tillie (Peter), Norman, Elsie (Nestor), Ernie (Pat), and Wally. He will lovingly be remembered by his wife of 72 years, Edith; his children: Linda (Ken) and Bob (Carolynne); his six grandchildren: Rachel (Jamie), Jason (Tine), Julia (Lance), Melanie (Mario), Amy (John), Victoria (Adam), and eight great-grandchildren: Thomas, Makayla, Kaitlyn, Emily, Colton, Kendall, Pierce, and Atticus. We will miss you, Papa. Norman worked for Bell Bottling in Dauphin and Brandon, and Modern Dairies (Beatrice). He was a very dedicated and loyal employee. Norman started as a route sales/delivery person at Modern Dairies, and his hard work was soon recognized culminating to a promotion to Sales Manager. He loved his sports and was highly active with ten-pin bowling, golf, and baseball. Norm was well known and recognized at the Thunderbird lanes, brought home countless trophies for his bowling achievements, and was always a leader on the Ukrainian team in the League of Nations bowling tournament. In 1945 he was a founding member of the Dauphin Baseball Club (renamed the Dauphin Redbirds), and he coached Little League in Brandon. He enjoyed playing canasta, cribbage, and dominoes. He was an avid Wheat Kings fan, and enjoyed Jets hockey, Blue Bombers football, and Blue Jays baseball on TV. Norm and Edie had a group of good friends that got together for many memorable celebrations. A private graveside service was held at the Brandon Cemetery and a Celebration of Life was held at the Riverbank Discovery Centre on Tuesday, August 23, 2022.
