It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Russell Everitt on August 22, 2019, at the Michael Garron Hospital, where he succumbed after a lengthy battle with cancer, with his loved ones by his side.

Russell was born in 1942 in Lachine, Quebec and moved to Toronto in 1977. He worked for Royal Trust for over 30 years, and then opened an antique business, which was his greatest passion.

Russell will be lovingly remembered by his wife Jane; his sons Wayne Wilkinson (Silvia), Russell Jr., & Scott; his daughter Lori Chevrier [nee Wilkinson] (Phil); and his brother Robert & sister-in-law Sandy. Russell will also be remembered fondly by his granddaughters Cassandra, Lisa & Nicole; his grandson Walker; and his great-grandsons Carter, Owen & Anderson, great-granddaughter Delainey, and his brother-in-law, Peter Strople & wife Michelle, along with his nieces and nephews. Russell is predeceased by his parents, Leah & Robert Everitt, sisters Carol & Susan, brother Gerry, daughter Wendy Wilkinson and grandson Jordan Wilkinson.

Russell was an incredibly caring husband and had much love for his family and friends. Known for his wonderful sense of humor, generosity and affection, we will miss him every day, but “how lucky we were to have had someone that makes saying good-bye to so hard.” Funeral arrangements have been made at: Trull Funeral Home 1111 Danforth Avenue Toronto, ON M4J 1M5 Tel: 416-465-4661.
