We Remember

SIEMENS, Russell

With deep sadness we announce the passing of Russell George Siemens on October 27, 2014 at the age of 62, after a valiant fight with cancer. Russell will be lovingly missed by his daughters Erin (Chris) Russell of Revelstoke and Carly (Erik) Schultz of Calgary, grandchildren Arwynn, Taylor, James, Nathanael and one soon to be born, his seester Sharon (Jim) Keenan of Maple Ridge and brudder George (Donna) Siemens of Fort McMurray, nieces and nephews, and best friend Eva Wong. After growing up on the coast and then moving to Calgary, Russell’s many adventures included hitchhiking across Canada where he made lifelong friends. For the next 28 years Russell’s home was Vernon, BC. He enjoyed his life as a hard-working mechanic at Nissan, and was a proud father to the family of girls that he raised so well – teaching them by example, to his very last breath, about how to live with kindness, optimism, courage, and gratitude. For the past 11 years he lived his dream lifestyle as the owner of Sky Blue Waters Resort on Shuswap Lake. There will be a public Celebration of Life at Sunnybrae Hall (3595 Sunnybrae Canoe-Point Road, Tappen, BC) on Saturday November 1st from 1:00-3:00pm. If you have any photos or stories to share please bring them for his memorial book.
