Russell Daigle, 75, of Salisbury, passed away peacefully at SENB Hospice - Albert House with his family by his side on Sunday, March 27, 2022. Born in Point-du-Chene, he was the son of the late Clarence and Doris (Hendrickson) Daigle.
Russell grew up in Pointe-du-Chene, where he spent his youth unloading pulp boats off the wharf and riding and training horses. He attended Moncton High School class of 1965, followed by a long career as a salesman in Moncton and throughout the Maritimes. He enjoyed carpentry and building a playhouse for his daughters when they were young, and he was constantly renovating his homes over the years. Russell had many friends in Salisbury, Moncton, and in the Rosewood mini-home community on Salisbury Road, where he previously lived. In his later years, he enjoyed going for long drives and spotting the deer out in the fields of Salisbury.
