It is with deep sorrow we announce that we lost one of our own Nov. 20th, 2019.
Before Russ (pictured left) worked for us, he was a part of the TN Department of Agriculture and primarily worked on cyst nematodes. He then happily moved onto our department and worked with all crops but had expertise on corn, soybean, and stored grain. When he wasn’t working, he was either messing with Ham radios or volunteering for the Madison County Sheriff’s Department. He eventually retired from our UT Extension Service and became a member of our Emeritus Faculty.
He is survived by his wife, who he had been married to for 50 years (Pat Patrick), his daughter (Lynn Box), granddaughter (Addison Box), and his brother (Bill Patrick).
A memorial visitation will be held from 2-4 PM this Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019 at the McReynolds-Nave & Larson Funeral Home in Clarksville, TN. Here are the directions to get there from our department.
Here is the official obituary.
Please keep his wife, Pat, and his daughter, Lynn, in your thoughts and prayers.
