Russell died in a tragic accident when he touched an electrified fence at age 14years 3 months 20 days.
From the Norwalk Reflector:
"Hartland boy is electrocuted by wire fence'
Russell Arthur Greene, 14 year old son of Mr and Mrs C.W. Greene of Hartland Twp. was electrocuted at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the barnyard of his home.
Coroner J.D. Bradish who will return a verdict of accidental death, asserts that the fatality was the result of a peculiar combination of circumstances.
The boy, it is stated, was handling a piece of wire that came into contact with an electric fence. He was barefooted and recent rains had made the farm yard wet.
The boy it appears, was unable to release his grasp on the wire and lay helpless and dying on the ground for about 45 minutes.
The youth is survived by his parents, his sister Irene, aged 16, two twin brothers, Arthur and Archie, and the grand parents, Mr and Mrs L.F. Greene of Hartland and Mr and Mrs J.H. King of Garretsville Ohio."
