MEGAS, Russell Victor, 51 years of age, passed away peacefully at the North Shore Hospice on November 15th, 2019.

We cannot thank the Hospice Staff enough for their care of Russ during his last days, notably Nurse Denise G. and Care-Aid Erin who were exceptional.

Russ is survived by his Mom Gail MacIntosh, his wife Christine, his sister Jodi (John), his sister in laws Susan, Lesley (Ian), brother in law Stuart (Nancy), step sister Julie and step brother Wayne. He will also be lovingly remembered by his nieces and nephews Reanna (Chris), James, Tiana, Kylie (Adam), Kaysha, Kelly, Denise (Parham), Matthew (Anne) Michael (Sam), Ryan, Jack, Michelle (Ashley) and Nicole as well as his great nephews Aiden, Kohen and great niece Caydence, in addition to his many Uncles, Aunts and cousins from both Canada and Scotland.

Russ was predeceased by his Dad David Megas, his step father Larry MacIntosh, step mother Grace Megas, mother and father in law Mary and Ian McNab, his Uncle Vic, Auntie Lynn, cousin Sandy, brother in law Bill, and his brother Ian.

Russ was an amazing person, and his love for family and friends was unsurpassed. He was never happier than when he was helping others. He enjoyed volunteering as a Ski Patrol member at Seymour Mountain, and anything to do with animals and the water. Russ taught courses at BCWWA and had the opportunity to develop a course as well. He never stopped learning, taking courses online, through work and in Operation Supervisory Skills at BCIT.

Russ worked as an artist before starting his life-long career with Metro Vancouver in 1988 working up at the Cleveland Dam in Water Operations. He then worked at the control room for Metro Vancouver where he was considered to be a genius at controlling their ever so growing system. Russ then went on to become a Foreman for water operations, continuing on to become a Supervisor for LWS. Russ was a very highly regarded and respected member of the Sewer & Drainage Operations team and liked by all who had the privilege to know him.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00pm on December 1st, 2019 at The View, located at 2121 Lonsdale Avenue, North Vancouver, BC.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Palliative/Hospice Programs at Lions Gate Hospital in Russ’ name.

Please visit Russ’ memorial site at for more information and to sign the book of condolences.

May you soar with the eagles and dance in the ocean waves.

There are some people you meet that you will never forget because you just know that they are a very special person. Russ was one of these people and he will be missed deeply by everyone who knew him. Rest in peace, Russ.
