Peacefully at Scarborough Grace Hospital in his 90th year. Husband of the late Liane Russell, father to Carol and Chris, grandfather to Shannon, Christopher and Taylor, great grandfather to Ryan, Mikayla, and Kaleb, and Brother of the late George Russell (Eleanor) and Ken (Mary), and sister Betty MacLeod (Iain) .He was known as Dad, Uncle Bill, Billy, and Bill but he was mostly known as Papa. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He will now rest in peace. Visitation at PAUL O'CONNOR FUNERAL HOME, 1939 Lawrence Ave.E (between Pharmacy and Warden) on Saturday, February 2, 2019, from 12 noon until the time of the service in our chapel at 1 pm. Interment following, then reception back at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers donations to Alzheimer Society would be appreciated. Father Loving eyes that shine with pride, Thoughtful words that teach and guide, Rowdy games and quiet talks Shoulder rides and hand-held walks Always there for smiles or tears A beacon through the troubled years, The days have passed before our eyes, Wonderous times with laughs and sighs, And though the child has gone away, Father’s love is here to stay.
