George “Baby Roo” Jenkins Jr., born Aug. 24, 2008, of Millsboro, Del., went to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 9, 2009. He is survived by his parents, George and Pam Jenkins; paternal grandparents, Robert and Diana Jenkins; maternal grandparents, Brad and Jane Parker; uncle and aunt, Bobby and Sarah Jenkins; cousins, Riley Jenkins and Drake Foxwell; and great-grandparents, Albert and Edna Steele, Gerry Lingo and Donald and Evelyn Parker. While his parents worked, he spent his days with Barbara and Pete Deklerow, who provided far more than just childcare for “Baby Roo” and his family.
Both of baby George’s parents come from very large, very close families, and his time here was spent being loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins, etc., whose relationships extend beyond family titles. He was loved, cherished and will forevermore be missed by the Jenkin, Parker, Steele and Lingo families.
A funeral service was scheduled for Wednesday, May 13, 2009, with interment in Cokesbury Cemetery, Georgetown, Del.
