In lieu of flowers, a donation maybe made to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation or to the North Okanagan-Shuswap Brain Injury Society (NOSBIS).


  1. Our deepest condolences to Russell’s passing. We will always remember his humorous personality and his great cooking. Even though we have not seen or heard from him in years, he was always thought of often.

  2. The man…the mission. If there’s one man I will remember who always found something to do it would be Russ. Painting, soldering, printing, fixing, etc. Every time I came over he had something new on the go! He was always a pleasure to be around and has left me with many fond memories. Especially the last visit I had with him at Bastion. What a sense of humor right to the end! Donna, although he has physically left us, his spirit lives on. We wish you fond memories and time well spent with loved ones while you continue to enjoy what life has to offer.
    All our love, Ryan, Lana, Amber & Sienna

  3. There are lots of good memories that the kids will have of spending summers staying with Grandma and Grandpa Morrow. Going out on the house boat, fishing, tinkering in the workshop, watching the Canada Day fireworks. (Counting all the eagles.) Even the Lion’s club Easter hunt that we took the kids to. All good memories. Oh, Russ, who will I exchange recipes with now. We will miss you! Wish I could have gotten one more of your big bear hugs.

  4. Donna
    Just wanted to extend our heart-felt condolences to you. We can only imagine the deep valley you are walking through right now, missing Russ.
    Thinking of you, Gerry and Kathie Thomson (of Thomson Plumbing and Heating)
