Dr. Clarke Scott Russell


Dr. Scott Russell (March 7, 1931-Oct. 11, 2022) of Collingwood, Ont., son of the late Alex and Jennie Russell of Oshawa, Ont. Much-loved husband of the late Elizabeth Russell (Koch). Dear father of Scott (Catherine Gregory) and Carrie (Brad Charlton). He was a much-admired grandpa to Alex, Charlotte, Sam and Spencer. We are so thankful to have been with dad to say our goodbyes.

Scott was loved by all his nieces and nephews from the Russell and Pyette clans, as well as his niece, Sharon McKay, and her husband, Don. Scott is survived by his beloved sister, Margaret Pyette, and her husband, Jim, as well as his younger brother, Bob (Chris Russell deceased).

Scott was a founding physician at North York General Hospital, helping countless parents bring their children into the world. He loved boats, skiing blue cruisers, tending his garden and a good scotch. He loved us all. Special thanks to all those who cared for Scott, including: Ewa, Priyanka and Barbara.

In lieu of flowers, our dad's hope would be that you be kind to someone in his memory.
