RUSSELL JAMES BONORA
Russell left us in the early evening on January 5, 2009 in the Deep River & District Hospital. His death was a peaceful one; he drifted quickly and quietly away in the arms of his wife, Nora. Russell was the much-loved husband of Nora Waddell, father of Brent (Florence), proud grandfather of Leanne (Tim) & Brian, and Great Poppa to Samantha & Peyton, who brought Russell much joy. He was predeceased by his parents Luigi & Catherine Bonora, his brother Victor, sister Anne Vollrath and brother-in-law Eddie. He is also survived by his sister-in-law Aurelia Bonora, many cousins, life-long friends Clare & Donella Dagg, and special 'girlfriend' Madeleine Boulanger. Russell was born and raised in Chalk River; he worked for CP Rail in Chalk River & Sudbury, retiring in 1984 after 43 years of service. Russell was fiercely loyal and generous to his family; he was a man of few words, high principals and dry wit. In his younger years, he loved fishing on the Ottawa River, hunting, playing baseball, and watching his Montreal Expos and Montreal Canadiens. He always loved the outdoors, and in his later years, he enjoyed his summers sitting on his front porch, reading his Ottawa Citizen, waving and talking to passersby. At Russell's request, there will be no visitation; a memorial service and interment will be held in the spring. Arrangements were entrusted to Valley Funeral Home. If so desired, donations may be made to the Deep River & District Hospital, or to the Maurice J. Grimes Lodge, 200 Melrose Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, K1Y 4K7. Russell's life has not ended by his death; it has only changed. He has found a life far more beautiful than the eye of man has ever seen, the ear of man has ever heard, or the mind of man has ever imagined.
