    Today I spoke with Russell Guibord's wife who told me that he passed away in October after a short illness. He operated Cane & Canvas, where he repaired and restored canoes, did caning, and more. She asks that if anyone had unfinished business with Cane & Canvas, please reach out at the phone number listed in the Builder's Directory.

    Russell attended Paul Smiths College, served in the U.S. Coast Guard, and had a career as a control systems engineer. He turned his interest in wooden canoes into a business, and worked at it until just a few days before he died. For more information, his obituary can be found here:
