Charles Andrew Farquhar, Jr.

Warden Charles Farquhar was bludgeoned to death by an inmate in his home just outside the Charles Farquhar Cattle Ranch, a state prison ranch named in his honor in Greensboro. The inmate also killed Warden Farquhar's wife and two other inmates in the home.

The 27-year-old inmate, serving a 20 year sentence for theft and attempted murder of a police officer, was angry over being ordered to gather pecans instead of getting the weekend off.

Warden Farquhar is survived by his two sons.
