Posted By Sobering Funeral Chapel On April 12, 2019 @ 4:18 pm In Obituaries | 16 Comments

July 17, 1952 – April 9, 2019

It is with deep sadness the family announces the sudden passing of Marvin Russell on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at the Health Sciences Centre.

Marvin will be lovingly remembered by his lifelong partner Maxine Tymchuk; his sisters, Audrey (Ken) Josling and son Eric (Shannon), Norma (Chuck) Hinds and children, Tina and Ian, Irene (Jesper) Naested and son Thomas (Maureen); great-niece Brenna, great-nephews, William, Theo and Seeton.   He will also be remembered by his Aunt Vi (nee Russell) Wall, and many cousins.

In his earlier years, Marvin, with his parents Oscar and Bessie Russell, managed the Russell Funeral Home.  Marvin continued this passionate and caring role for family and friends.  With his quiet demeanor, insight into life, and words of wisdom, he provided guidance when we were in need.

Marvin enjoyed spending time in the outdoors with years of snowmobiling, hunting, fishing and sharing memories around a campfire of earlier years of adventures.  The car racing stories were always interesting and the AMX usually won!   Max and Marv enjoyed many years at their little cabin entertaining friends and family on the Brokenhead River. 

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, April 17 at 1:00 p.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, Beausejour, MB.

Flowers gratefully declined.  If desired, donations may be made to East Gate Lodge, Box 1690, Beausejour, MB R0E 0C0.

Deepest Condolences on the passing of Marvin, I remember him fondly over the years, and especially when my mom passed away, I was just 16 and Marvin would have been 27, he was so caring and compassionate, feels like that was just yesterday. Such a nice guy. Gone far too soon.

Marvin will be missed by all of us who have aged together, met in coffee shops and waved at each other daily as we passed on the street in Beausejour or waved at Marv while he worked in the yard.
Maxine, I am here for you if you need a friend. Be brave and strong as you always have been.
