On December 31, 2020, our beloved husband, father, Dido, brother and friend, Russell Edward Sloboda, peacefully crossed over from this life to eternity with Jesus, amidst the applause and cheers of the angels and saints.
Russell will be fondly missed by his wife of 61 years, Vickie Sloboda, children Donna (Gary) Rowse, Deborah Sloboda, Chris (Lanette) Sloboda, Victor (Tanis) Sloboda, Dee-Ann Carol, and Dori-lyn (Tom) Robinson, 18 grandchildren and their spouses and partners, seven great-grandchildren, sisters Olgamarie Durie, Joyce (Jim) Williams, brothers Ernie (Kathy) Sloboda and Eugene (Merrilu) Sloboda, along with numerous relatives and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Paul and Annie Sloboda.
Russell will be remembered as completely and zealously devoted to God and his family. Although gifted with a quiet demeanor, he was a leader and hard worker during his life as a farmer and school bus driver. He was, and will always be, an example of commitment and integrity and his passing leaves a profound loss in many people’s lives.
