RUSSELL PARTRIDGE (published on January 16, 2010)

RUSSELL PARTRIDGE It is with great sorrow that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Russell Gordon Partridge. On January 13, 2010 at the age of 71 at St. Boniface Hospital surrounded by his wife and children, Russell succumbed to his battle with cancer. He was predeceased by his mother Mime, father Frank and stepmother Lynne. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Valerie of 49 and one-half years, daughter Kim (Al), son Craig (Mindy), daughter Kerinda and grandchildren: Preston, Cory, Samantha, Kayla, Shana and Skye; brother Barrie (Sharon), sister Vanessa (Charlie) their children Jason (Jess), Kyle, Chelsie, and sister-in-laws: Helen, Fern, Iris, Shelagh; brother-in-law Doug, along with numerous nieces, nephews and family friend Anne. Russell was born to Mime and Frank Partridge on February 21, 1938 in Fort William, Ontario (better known today as Thunder Bay), later moving to Montreal and then to Winnipeg. Working at Lake of the Woods Milling Company he met Valerie, the love of his life. Russell then moved on to Manitoba Bridge and later to the Winnipeg School Division where he spent the next 25 years as a Business Administrator at Gordon Bell High School until he retired in July of 1993. Russell was an avid sports enthusiast. In his younger years he loved to play hockey and later on enjoyed many years curling with his buddies at the Fort Garry Curling Club. One of his shining moments was skipping his team to an eight ender. The team was the talk of the club for quite some time. Russell was not only a father but a Dad who totally enjoyed the many hours spent watching his children play sports. If you ever wanted to know anything about sports Uncle Russ was the one to call, having the answer nine times out of ten. Later on in his life you could find him playing cards with his family or playing VLT's at Roger's. Special thank-you to Dr. Oscar and Sheila Domke and the staff at St. Boniface Hospital for their excellent care. A celebration of Russell's life will be held on Monday, January 18, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. at Green Acres Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Ave, Room ON 1160, Winnipeg, MB R3E 0V9 If tears could build a stairway And memories a lane We'd walk right up to Heaven And bring you home again.
