Henri Russell, 88, of Faubourg du Mascaret in Moncton, passed away on Saturday May 16, 2020 at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont UHC. Born in Tarragona, Spain, he was the son of the late Jose and Maria (Dalmau) Russell.
He is survived by his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, all of Québec, as well as many friends.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Muguette Lafontaine; and his brother, Antonio Russell.
An engineer by training, he continued his studies in Tarragona in Spain, as well as at the école Ingénieur Arts et Métiers of Paris in France. Henri arrived in Canada in 1965 in the Montréal region. In 1987, he moved to Shippagan where he established the company Shippagan Machine Shop.
Due to the pandemic, a memorial mass will be celebrated at a later date. In memory of Henri, a contribution to a charity of the donor’s choice would be appreciated. Funeral arrangements are under the professional care of Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, Moncton (858-1900).
