Russell Jenkins, beloved husband of Claudine for 67 years, (father of Warren, Russ, Joe, Rob, Janine (deceased), and Tammy), went home to be with the Lord Jan. 17, 2017 at age 91 after a short, but severe fight with cancer. He is survived by 5 children, 15 grandchildren, and 27 great grandchildren.
Russell was a D Day survivor and served on Omaha Beach at age 18. A graduate of UVA School of Architecture, Russell owned a firm that specialized in designing Churches, and designed over 200 during his career. Originally from Radiant Va., Russell spent the majority of his life in McLean, Va. Before moving to Purcellville and eventually into Ashby Ponds Retirement complex in Ashburn, Va.
Russell left a rich Christian heritage to his descendants having come to faith in Christ shortly after experiencing the horrors of WWII. He set in motion several generations of Christ followers and we will be forever in his debt.
