    Sad J.N. Russell Passes Away on 12-08-10

    On 12-08-10 Julius Neal Russell, one of the world's most respected entomologist, and one of the nation's first commercial queen breeders, passed away quietly at St. Dominic's Hospital in Jackson, MS.

    His life had been devoted to the research and developement of the US honey bee industry and he has given so much for us all.

    His family will miss him and the world will be a darker place without him.

    Services will be held Saturday at Baldwin-Lee Funeral home in Raymond, MS and he will be laid to rest in his family cemetery in Raymond at 11:00am.

    His life's work shall be continued by his son Robert L. Russell. All who knew him, knew that he was a wonderful man.

    Please anyone who knew him is welcome to comment on this thread... We would love to hear from you.

    So sorry to hear that. My wife told me just this week to call JN. We visited him twice and stayed with him. He was a delight to be around and one of the most friendly - hospitiable people we have ever met. Stayed up until the wee hours talking queen rearing. The bees we got from him are doing great. He even threw in a scooter box and a small hive for the wife. We will miss him as she says when we are working bees now Russell said.......... to do it this way.

    Mr. J n Russell was a great man and BeeKeeper. I will remember him and his wisdom always. He loved and was loved by many. He made a pointe to always bring a smile to everyone's face he met. I am proud to have met and know him as a man and BeeKeeper. I hope his knowledge and legacy continues forever and ever. Rest in peace.
