Obituary for Russell Edward Karrick

St. Albans – Russell Edward Karrick, 79, previously a long-time resident of Newburgh, New York, who has resided in the St. Albans area since 1995, passed away on Friday, January 15, 2010 at the Birchwood Terrace Healthcare with his loving family at his side. Born on September 22, 1930, in Litchfield, Illinois, he was the son of the late Henry Everett and Gladys Ruby John Karrick. Russell was married to the former Pauline Martin who survives him. Following twenty one years of service in the United States Air Force, Russell received an Honorable Discharge in 1968 with the rank of Tech Sergeant. He then retired in 1993, from the Fishkill Correctional Facility. He was a member of the American Legion and Moose Lodge in New York and a communicant of St. Mary’s Church in St. Albans. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, poetry, and bowling. Survivors include his wife Pauline of St. Albans, their son, Russell Karrick of Newburgh, New York; their daughter, Debra Marchant and her husband, David of St. Albans; his grandchildren, Briana and Ali Terwilliger and Russell Karrick, his brother, Jerry Karrick and his wife, Marge of Texas. Russell is also survived by his brothers in law, Joe Martin of New York and Frank Martin of North Carolina; his nieces, Tara, Kelly, Ashley and Melissa Martin and Kris DeBurg and her husband, Arland; his nephews, Robert and Scott Gracie, John Martin, and Joe Martin, Jr., and his close friends, Larry and Carmella Starziak, and Tony Terwilliger. In addition to his parents, Russell was preceded in death by his sisters, Pauline Hawkins and Marge Gracie and a niece, Linda Hawkins. “One Side of Life” by Russell Karrick I pity a man who in search of life has not found contentment, but found only strife. For this is a man who searches alone… He may never find love, nor a place to call home. His goals set too high and life’s patterns won’t bend; his strife will continue right on to the end. His thinking is blurred, his reasoning unclear; he overlooks roses, and can’t see what’s near. This man has life’s riches, so abundant and fair… How fortunate for him, he doesn’t see they are there. Some men never change, and this might be one who will travel life’s path and never have won. To be him would be sad, for surely he has lost true fulfillment in life, and he’ll pay the cost. Funeral services will be at the convenience of his family. In lieu of flowers, memorials in his name may be made to the Tribute Program, St. Jude’s Childrens Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, Tennessee 38105 1942. Assisting the Karrick family is Raymond “Rett” Heald of the Heald Funeral Home and Cremation Service of St. Albans. Private messages of condolence to Russell’s family are welcome at
