Louie D. Jenkins, Jr., 72, left the bounds of earthly life on October 27, 2014 with his family at his bedside. He fought a courageous and long battle with the support of his family, church and friends. He served his country in the U.S. Army after graduating college. After his honorable discharge from the military, he felt compelled to serve with the American National Red Cross. He deeply cared for and worked hard to support our troops and their families in the United States and abroad. He went on to hold positions with the State of Florida (Child Services), Edward Waters College, Building Maintenance, and Job Corps. He retired from the City of Jacksonville as a Regional Parks Director. He served with pride and much devotion as reader at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church for several years at the Broward Road location. He was a graduate of Stillman College B.S., Jones College B.S. and attended Nova University. He is predeceased by both parents, Louie Sr. and Margaret G. Jenkins. He leaves behind to continue to cherish and promote his beautiful memory; Orga, wife of 46 years; his children, Eric and Roxanna (James Love); grandchildren, Ashley Williams and Hayleigh Thompson; sisters, Dr. Gwendolyn Chandler and Priscilla Johnson; and a host of nephews, nieces, grand nephews and grand nieces, along with other loving relatives. He supported the work of various social, civic and political organizations, including Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, Jacksonville Fraternal Order of Police and Jacksonville Fire & Rescue Department. We, his family, wish to thank the doctors, nurses and medical personnel for their diligent and loving care. The celebration of his life will be held at 11:00 AM, with visitation at 10:00 AM until time of service, Monday, November 3, 2014, at Corey-Kerlin Funeral Home, 1426 Rowe Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32208.
