July 14, 1947 - October 4, 2017
"W7JFH," David Paul Jenkins, Jr., signed off with a tender goodbye Wednesday, October 4, 2017, following a brief battle with cancer. Our dearly loved husband, father, brother, son and friend was born July 14, 1947, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to David Paul and Ruth Beatie Jenkins. Following graduation from Bountiful High in 1964, study at Weber State and a stint in the Army National Guard, Dave spent 35 years in Avionics with United Airlines. His proudest achievements, however, were his devotion to family and friends through his generous service. His dedication to his aging mother shined in helping her with her needs. He expressed his love by lifting the burdens of others. His facebook was HAM radio where he interacted with people all over the world. He honed his clay shooting skills with dear friends-- the Barneys, Clarks and others. His focus on relationships was paramount as his family built a cabin at Christmas Meadows where fishing and hunting trips built forever bonds with his father and siblings. From a young age, Davey could fix anything. Any new toy was taken apart and analyzed to see how it worked. But it was his devotion to his wife and family that stands out the most. He used his career to provide not only necessities, but memories of good times. He was always steadfast, loving and a tender father and husband. His example of honesty and trustworthiness will live on in his children, grandchildren, and his many devoted friends. We will miss him everyday. He is survived by his wife, Jane; daughter Tara (Dennis) Newman; son, John (Farah); mother, Ruth; sister, Susan (Jim) Mabey; and brother, Randy (Jill) and grandchildren Denver and Skye. He is preceded in death by his father, David, and his brother, Cory (Shirley). We will miss and love him always. Graveside services will be held for family. A life celebration will be held a later date for family and friends.
