Oct. 7, 1933 – May 27, 2017.
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband and father Keith Russill on May 27th, 2017 with his wife Joan and siblings by his side.
Keith is survived by his wife of 12 happy years, Joan Gulliford; and his two daughters, Della (Randy) Mills of Prince George and Darlene (Bill) Campbell of Kamloops, stepson Curtis (Shirley) Gulliford of Calgary, and stepdaughter Shaunda (Melvin) Willis of Kamloops. He also leaves nine grandchildren: Russill (Rowena) Mills, Zachary (Sonja) Mills, Katie (Eric) Riedstra, Marcy Mills, Shannon Campbell, Kevin Campbell, Traven Gulliford, Landry Gulliford and Kierra Willis, and three great grandsons Cedric,
Torin and Fenton Mills.
Keith worked for the Royal Bank of Canada for 36 years until he retired in 1988. Over the years, Keith loved to golf and curl, but most recently his favourite thing was to dance with Joan. Keith and Joan spent winters as snowbirds, enjoying their many friends down in Yuma, AZ.
Keith is predeceased by his first wife of 39 years, Greta, and his brother Ronald and sister Esther.
A celebration of Keith’s life was held in the Schoening Funeral Chapel on Monday, June 5th, with dignity celebrant Glen Peter officiating.
Should friends desire, donations to the charity of one’s choice would be appreciated in Keith’s memory.
