Forever in our hearts, rest in peace Russell.
I was lucky enough to know Russell through my friendship with his daughter Tamara and her partner Ian. I was even more lucky to be included in many family gatherings in the years I lived in Toronto in the 1990s, and often saw Russell at the centre of his loving family, surrounded by a swirl of grandchildren. At those gatherings and on other occasions, Russell and I often had long conversations about creativity and politics, and I appreciated his curiosity, open mind, and caring spirit. That spirit and his good parenting was instrumental in the formation of my wonderful friend Tamara, for whom I will always be grateful to Russell. My condolences to everyone in the Elliott family at this hard time, and wishing you all the best memories of Russell.
My deepest sympathy Tammy, Tracy, David and Jennifer. Your Dad always wore a big smile. I remember him fondly.
Thinking of you and sending you each a hug.
We are saddened that Virley has graduated. Yet We are all on the way. We mourn with you, his family.
Sending our sincere condolences to you Tracy, Mort, Jillian, Adrian & Elisa. May your canal memories and time shared with your dad live in your heart forever! Love, Jenn and sons 😘
