Russell Melville McKay
Feb. 6, 1920 – March 29, 2016
Peacefully passed away on his beloved farm with his family by his side, Russ went to be re-united with his dark haired beauty – Eleanor (Veale). He will be missed by his children Ann Meredith, Robert McKay (Laura) and Joyce Scholz (Dietmar). He was so proud of his grandchildren Nicole and Sarah Meredith, Larissa McKay, Tim (Jackie), Dan (Andrea), Jeremy (Hannah) and Jenna Scholz. He was an adoring great-grandfather to Malachi, Rory, and Benny Scholz. Russ proudly served his country during WWII with the RCAF. An avid Sens fan, he played and enjoyed hockey all his life. We would like to thank the CCAC and all the amazing staff from St. Elizabeth’s Health Care. Special thanks to Dr. Bright. There will be a gathering for friends and family at Tubman Funeral Homes Garden Chapel, 3440 Richmond Rd., Nepean ( by Bayshore), on Sunday April 3rd from 1pm – 2:30pm followed by a celebration of life at Christ Church Bell’s Corners, 3861 Old Richmond Rd at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
