Obituary of Russell S Eggleton

Russell S. Eggleton, age 83, died on Wednesday, August 11, 2021. Russ was born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia. He graduated from LaSalle University in 1959 and served as a First Lieutenant in the US Army. He married the love of his life, Elinor McNamara, in 1965 and shortly after moved to the City of Falls Church. A lifetime public servant, he worked for the Department of Defense at the Pentagon until he retired in 1998. Russ was a devout Catholic and member of St. James Parish for 50 years. Dedicated to his wife and three children, Suzanne, Lisa and Russell, Russ was a family man above all else. He loved summers at the beach in Ocean City, New Jersey, winters in Fort Myers, Florida, and a sunny golf course anywhere. Preceded in death by his son Russell, Russ is survived by his wife of fifty-five years, Elinor; daughters Suzanne and Lisa (Julio); daughter-in- law Anita, along with 10 grandchildren. He will be remembered always as a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, and caring friend. Information on Services will be updated at https://www.mykeeper.com/profile/RussEggleton/
