Greenwood, Indiana | Age 56


Russell H. Milligan, age 56, of Greenwood, IN, passed away on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at Community South Hospital in Indianapolis.
Russ was born in Escanaba, MI to James and Margaret Milligan. He was a 1982 graduate of Concord High School in Goshen, IN and a 1986 graduate of Wabash College where he earned a degree in Biology. Russ started his teaching and coaching career in Frankfort, IN. He then left Frankfort in 1990 to become a chemistry teacher and assistant football coach at Center Grove High School. Russ has taught Chemistry at Center Grove High School for 31 years and has been the Varsity Girls Softball coach for 27 years. He will forever be remembered for his blunt honesty, his love of teaching and love of high school athletics. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and many students. To honor his memory, please always remember, "Life is pretty simple."
Survivors include his wife Alisha M. (Lemons) Milligan; parents, James and Margaret Milligan of Chesnee, SC; sons, Jacob Russell Milligan of Lander, WY and Alex Milligan of Indianapolis; brothers, James Milligan (Katrina) of Sevierville, TN and Scott Milligan (Michelle) of Belfast, ME; and many beloved friends and students.
Due to the pandemic, the family will have a private family gathering on Saturday, February 13 at Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service and Crematory-Greenwood Chapel. A celebration of life will be held later this spring to commemorate Russ' life and celebrate his love of Center Grove Trojan Softball.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to The United States National Park Service,
