Christendom mourns the passing of former Maintenance Manager Russell Henry,  who passed away on August 8 at the age of 82. Henry joyfully worked at the college for nearly 20 years, serving the community with dedication, wit, and humor.

Henry was born in 1938. In 1985, Henry joined Christendom College as Maintenance Manager, a position he would hold for nearly 20 years until his retirement in 2004. During his time at the college, Henry was well respected for his character and virtue, along with his joyous sense of humor.

The dedication of Henry and his family to the Christendom community continues on with Alisa Polk, his daughter. Polk joined Christendom just a year after her father in 1986 and still serves the college as a Financial Aid Officer.

Henry will be sorely missed by the entire Christendom community.

May his soul, and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
