It is with extreme sadness that we announce the tragic passing of Melvyn “Russell” MacDonald on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019 in Minnesota during one of his favourite hobbies: snowmobiling with his friends.
Russ was born on Aug. 11, 1983 to Melvin and Lucille (Allan) MacDonald in Yorkton, Sask. Russ shared his birthday with his grandfather, Russell Allan, for whom he was named. Aug. 11th was a popular birthday as he also shared it with his Auntie Brenda.
He was the oldest of three and role model to little brothers, Brodie and Neil.
