KIERSTEAD, Russel Lewis January 31, 1930-February 11, 2006
After a short but valiant struggle with cancer, passed away in Trillium Lodge, Parksville, BC with his loving companion Lillian at his side.
He is survived by his two sons, Dale (Sharon), Richard, and his daughter Cheryl (Garry Foote), and eight grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Edith (Steve), brother Gordon (Joyce) and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. he was predeceased by his father Fred Kierstead and his mother Violet and also his wife Ellen. He will also be sadly missed by his good friends Sandy and Rita Gubby, and his companion’s borrowed family including seven children, 14 grandchildren and one great grandson.
We would like to thank Dr. Robert Waite, community home support and especially the very caring nurses, care aides and staff at Trillium Lodge.
In keeping with Russ’ wishes there will be no service. Cremation has taken place and his remains will be honored in a private memorial later by his children.
We ask that you remember Russel in your own way and in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.
