DONOGHUE – Russell
16/07/1962 – 23/08/2021
Passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family,
Aged 59 Years.
Loved and loving husband of Keryn for over 30 years.
Adored Dad of Dean, Ryan, and Emily.
With tears we watched you suffer,
And watched you fade away,
With courage and concern for others,
You fought so hard to stay,
But God saw that you were weary,
And did what He thought best,
He gently took you in His arms,
And whispered come and rest,
we all love you Dad.
The Funeral Service for Russell will be livestreamed on Friday, August 27, 2021 commencing at 2.00pm.
