Claude Dean Rankin, 92, went home to Heaven on May 24, 2023.
He decided he was ready to go. He spent a few days with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and then died peacefully at home.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Juanita and a total of 7 brothers and sisters.
Claude was a productive and happy man, and more importantly, he was a Godly man who never compromised his faith in God and led many people to the Lord. For several decades, he served at his church as deacon, counselor and prayer team member and participated in many mission trips to other countries. He was very pleased to have celebrated his 85th birthday in Israel on a trip with his church.
