Russell George Flodstedt

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of

RUSSELL FLODSTEDT, our beloved father, brother, husband and grandfather. Russell will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 55 years, Marie; his children, Debra, Fay (Joe), and Bruce (Jodi); and eight grandchildren, Raine, Curtis, Jason, Derek, Sydney, Liam, Nic, and Paige.

Also left to cherish Russell’s memory are his sister Fay of Thunder Bay, many nieces and nephews and all of his friends.

Russell was born at Duval, Sask. in 1930 and spent his youth growing up in Saskatchewan. He graduated with a B.S.P. in Pharmacy from the University of Saskatchewan in 1956. Russell practised pharmacy in Regina, Coleman, Calgary, Edmonton, and Kitchener before opening Golden Drugmart in 1975.

Always one to be busy, Russell worked, golfed and enjoyed life right to the end.

In lieu of flowers memorial tributes may be made in Russell’s memory directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, Box 478, Golden B.C. V0A 1H0 or the Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice.

A memorial service will be held at the St. Andrews United Church on Saturday March 21 at 2:00 pm with a gathering afterwards at Golden Seniors Centre.
