William Isaac Jenkins

May 15, 1938 – February 4, 2019

William was born on May 15, 1938 in Omaha, NE to William and Marian Jenkins.  He peacefully went to meet the Lord on Monday, February 4th, surrounded by loving family.

William married Ann Dvorak on July 7, 1962.  They were blessed with six children.  He was preceded in death by his parents.  He is survived by his wife, Ann (Dvorak) Jenkins; children: Lori Rea, Bill Jenkins (Lisa), Julie Younkin (Bret), Annie Carnes (Dan), Amy Williams (Jeff), and Linda Belcavitch (Jeremy); 14 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren; sisters, Michelle Belcher (Steve) and Judy Elwell (Roger).

Bill served his country in the United States Navy.  He became a member of the Omaha Fire Department in 1960, retiring as a Captain in 1991.  He was proud of the 31 years he served his community, and he cherished the friendships he made with his fellow firefighters.  Bill will be remembered for his extraordinary love for his family.  He was a man of God and very passionate about his Baptist faith.

The family would like to thank the doctors and staff of the VA Medical Center for their extraordinary care and support.

    I am so sorry to hear of Billy’s passing. My love to your family as I know this is a huge loss for you. He was such a great man and my dad, Larry Dill, thought very highly of him. There are several of your dad’s wood carvings in mom’s house still and I have a beautiful one in my garden he sent me in memory of my dad. Much love to you guys.

    Great times are for remembering. Since we lived across the street from one another Bill and I stood in the middle of the street and solved a lot of the world’s problems. We also spent a lot of time discussing scripture. I’m so glad I know that Bill is now with our Lord. God bless you Ann. Phil & Conny
