Ira Delmar Jenkins was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee on November 27th 1905 to Alva Mary Shaw Jenkins and Thomas Franklin Jenkins.

Ira was married to Eloise Jenkins for many years. His siblings were; Herbert Franklin Jenkins, Whitman Jenkins, Grady Jenkins and Jewel Jenkins.

I remember as a young boy that my uncle Ira had a huge African grey parrot that he always had out of his cage. The parrot would talk with an extensive vocabulary and eat out of my uncles hand. He treated that bird like it was his baby - it was an awesome sight.

Ira lived in Wyandotte, Michigan for many years but lived the later part of his life near Hollywood, Florida where he ran his own successful foundry.
