Ken Russell Death – Ken Russell of Robert, a professor at Robert Gordon University and also an honorary professor at Aberdeen Business School has passed away. Ken’s wife, Jane Russell made a statement following the death of her husband, she explain that he had shown no sign of sickness and how good he was during his days. “He hadn’t been ill. It was a complete shock,” said Jane Russell, Ken’s wife. We found out after that his heart was scarred and enlarged. If you knew him you’d know how tragically fitting that is for Ken. He had such a big heart; he’s someone who always thought of others.”
Russell was born on November 13, 1955, in a Born in a Belfast hospital, and was raised in Northern Ireland. His obituary made it known that he was close to his parents Daisy and Derek, his sister Pamela and brothers Ian and Brian. Ken got married to his wife in 1991. The love birds got engaged at Christmastime 2002 and married the following September in Melrose, in the Borders. They had their honeymoon on the Isle of Mull where Ken had spent many happy family holidays.
Ken Russell attended Newcastle University where he graduated with a Ph.D. in Engineering. He remained a Magpie from then on – still following the progress – or not – of Newcastle United. During his time growing up, Ken became a Queen’s Scout and keen rugby player, chosen to be part of Northern Ireland’s youth team. But his time was divided between sport and other outdoor pursuits. Ken loved being outside and enjoyed walking in the Mountains of Mourne near his Lisburn home.
