Enon Henry Russell, 86, of Zirconia, passed away Wednesday, June 16th, 2021, at Pardee Hospital.
A native and lifelong resident of Henderson County, he was the son of the late Jesse and Josephine Russell.
Enon was a rare Jewel with a sweet spirit. A hard worker that loved his family, especially his grandsons. Life will not as sweet without him here, but there is no doubt he is seeing the streets of Gold and walking with Jesus! We all look forward to walking those streets with him!
Enon was a lifetime member of Green River Fire Dept. along with his son Ricky and grandson Chad. 3 generations in the fire department. When Enon was a young man his parents house burnt to the ground and 2 brothers lost their lives. Right after that fire was when the Green River Fire Dept. was built. So, the Fire Dept. and the men and women in the Dept. hold a very special place in His Heart.
