Obituary for Rev. Gene Russell

Rev. Robert Eugene Russell, age 87 of Loudon, went to join God the Father and Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.

A kind and gentle servant, Gene as many knew him, began preaching the gospel 64 years ago. During his long career, he served many Baptist congregations; Riverview in Loudon and Hill Top in Kingston were among his long appointments.

Faithfulness is a word that Gene embraced. Along with his wife, Betty, the two ministered and exhibited their faithfulness as they encouraged others to get to know the same Lord and Savior they served.

In these last years, Gene returned to his home church at Corinth Baptist. Many have said Gene’s absence will be evident in the pews on Earth but welcome in the choirs of Heaven

In addition to ministry, Gene worked 32 years beginning with Union Carbide and retiring from Viskase Corporation. He ministered and shared his faith there as well leading many co-workers to Christ.

Gene was preceded in death by parents, Clarence and Ruby (Gray) Russell; wife and mother of his children, Virgie Russell; daughter, Vickie and son, James; brother, Leslie; sisters, Anna Rae Brackett, Patsy Steed and Linda Tate; brothers in-law, Bill Johnston and Bruce Lankford.

Survivors include his wife of 34 years, Betty (Sitzlar) Collins Russell; sons and daughter in-law, Terry Russell and Roland and Vickie Russell, all of Loudon; step daughters and husbands, Linda Atkinson, CA, Donna and Willie Chance, GA and Shelia and Bryan Mulcahy, FL; brother in-law, Leroy Tate; sisters in-law, Viola Johnston and Frankie Lankford; numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
