Hi Bluestreak-ga,

Thanks for your question. It feels like old times!

According to "Who Was Who in America with World Notables," Russell
George Lynch died on May 12, 1979.

The information in the entry corresponds with what you already have
(including the birthdate). Lynch was the sports editior of the Racine
Times Call from 1919-1920. He worked as a reporter on the Racine
Journal News in 1920, then back to the Racine Times Call in the same
capacity until 1922. He was a rewrite man on the Milwaukee Journal
from 1922 to 1933 and then the sports editor until 1956. He also
served in the military during World War I. He had one son.

Who Was Who in America with World Notables: 1977-1981. Illinois, USA:
Marquis Who's Who: 1981, vol. VII, page 363

After assorted searches on Google with no results. I went to the print
volumes of Biography and Master Genealogy Index, which lead me to the
Who Was Who in America citation.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you need additional
clarification and I will do my best to assist you.
