Frank Jenkins

Jan. 3, 1934 – July 14, 2021

Frank Jenkins, 87, of Lovell went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, at hospice in Casper. He was born January 3, 1934, in Upton, Wyoming, and later moved to Hardin, Montana.

He graduated from Hardin High School in 1952, and he joined the Air Force one week after graduation. He spent four years working communication and radar sites in Germany, France and Spain. He was discharged in 1956.

After his military service, he started his career as a lineman, building power lines in Montana and Wyoming. In 1963 he moved to Lovell, where he was hired by Pacific Power. He retired after 35 years in 1998.

He was an active member of St. John’s Lutheran Church. He loved to hunt, fish and go camping. He was a very skilled woodworker, making several pieces for his sons and their families. He also enjoyed yard work and took great pride in keeping his yard groomed. He also enjoyed going to the local cafe to have morning coffee with his “coffee buddies.”

Frank is survived by two sons, Steve (Debbie) of Casper and David (Debbie) of Longmont, Colorado, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren with the fourth due later this year, brother Larry (Bunny) Jenkins and several nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded in death by his wife, Blossom, and parents Frank and Ellen Jenkins.

Services will be held August 4 at 10 a.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1240 S. Missouri Ave., Casper.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Central Wyoming Hospice and Transitions, 319 S. Wilson St., Casper, WY 82601.
