Remembering our Fellow Growers – Facts for Fancy Fruit

Remembering our Fellow Growers

The last few weeks has been a dark time for our industry. We have lost some of the stalwarts of the fruit and vegetable industries. We remember:

 George A. Adrian, 95, Indianapolis

Thomas E. Roney, 70, Greenfield

Gene M. Wild, 90, Zionsville

John Hilger, Ft. Wayne

Abner J. Horrall, 85, Bicknell

While these folks came from across the state, they were united by their belief and passion for family, faith and farm. From Purdue, we send our heartfelt sympathies to the families.
