From the statement released on Facebook, the family explained that Russell was hit by necrotizing pancreatitis at the beginning of this year. He had driven down in his Prado to Esperance to help with the production of the upcoming movie Before Dawn but didn’t make it to Esperance as his trip was cut short as he fell ill to necrotizing pancreatitis, a form of severe pancreatitis; the family further explained.
Read Excerpts From The Statement Below:-
Father, Chief, Mate, Man of Steel and Friend. With great sorrow and disbelief, I pass on this harrowing news to you, the passing of a man who had such an incredible life and as you all know lived his life to the absolute fullest.
In January, Dad drove down in his Prado to Esperance to help with the production of the upcoming movie Before Dawn. He didn’t make it to Esperance. His trip was cut short as he fell ill to necrotizing pancreatitis, a form of severe pancreatitis.
He was flown back to Perth by the RFDS and was operated on. After a few weeks, he was sent off home in the hopes that he was on his way with a slow recovery. However, things did not go as hoped and he was admitted back into the hospital. Over time we saw him go through a roller coaster of improvement and declination. He continued to fight, and his loved ones and family fought by his side every step of the way.
Please understand that Dad’s wish was to keep his ill health private and his condition discreet. It was also impossible to let everyone know due to Dad’s changing condition.
I met Russell quite a few times and invited him to be a @PerthGloryFC 20th anniversary committee given his love for ⚽️
A very decent and kind man.
RIP Russell and condolences to his family. pic.twitter.com/SysZha64C2
