RADFORD, Texas — The man who coined the phrase “rural mutual insurance” died Wednesday, the county sheriff’s office said.
The county’s Sheriff Mike Wright said the 51-year-old Radford died at his home in rural Radford on a farm outside the town of Radford.
Radford, Texas is about 45 minutes northeast of Dallas.
The sheriff said Radford was an avid runner and an avid hunter who owned a farm.
He loved horses, horses, and hunting, and he loved horses.
He was a big proponent of the rural refuge movement and was the founder of the Radford-Radford Rancher’s Association.
The sheriff added that Radford worked as a ranch owner and lived in a home on the Radfield property, where he would go to work and to church.
The Associated Press could not reach Radford for comment.
