Walter D. Jenkins, I

Published 12:35 am Thursday, November 12, 2009

Born August 4 1957, in Beaumont, Texas, Walter passed to be with our Lord on October 1, 2009. He will truly be missed.

Walter was known by many and loved by more than he ever knew. He was the type of man that if you where broke down, he would come and fix your car and give the jacket he was wearing to make sure you stayed warm while he was doing it.

He had many names: Husband, Daddy, D-day, Paw-Paw Rabbit, Uncle Walt, and Disco-Duck on the c/b. His memorial will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 14, 2009, at the Church of God of Prophecy, in Picayune.
