Jakes, George Russell 85 06/02/1925 12/02/2010 Beloved husband, father, and friend, George Jakes left us Dec. 2, 2010, to be with the Lord, after 85 years of a life well lived. Born in Morristown, S.D., George lived most of his life in Portland. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II and worked for General Electric for 33 years. George is survived by his wife of 60 years, Phyllis (Rierson) Jakes; daughters, Karen Snow and Cathy Jakes; and grandchildren, Anna and Jake Prosser. George worshiped and enjoyed fellowship at Damascus Community Church. He found great joy in serving others, caring for his family, and working with his hands. He was loved and respected by all who knew him. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, 2010, in Damascus Community Church, 14251 S.E. Rust Way, Damascus. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Damascus Community Church in George's memory.
