Henry W Russell 1937-2019

This weekend we received the sad news that Henry Russell died in hospital on Friday night at the age of 81. 
Henry was an active member of the OWA almost since the club's inception.  Who doesn't remember the delicately ornate souvenir cases he displayed, time and again, often for his grandkids, in our Show-and-Tell segments?  Coopered lids and inlaid floral motifs were testaments to his skills; and inspiration to the rest of us.  Year after year, Henry was a silent partner with Jack Schwass making decorative frames and commemorative plaques to celebrate annual Danny Proulx Award winners.  And he never failed to greet you with a ready smile.

Thanks to Terry McClean, the following was posted on our club's Facebook page:
Henry passed last evening after a Wednesday heart attack.
Details will be available on the Tubman site later today.  Visitation is Tuesday 1 to 3 and 6 to 8 at the Tubman funeral home next to the Queensway Carleton Hospital.  The funeral will be at the Reform Presbyterian Church at 11 am on Wednesday.

Heartfelt condolences from the OWA to Henry's family and friends.
