Jeffery Louis Jenkins completed his life's journey on March 19, 2017 at the age of 73. He was born on February 1, 1944 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Helen Donell Jenkins and Oscar Walker Jenkins. He lived in many places in California before his family settled in West Sacramento where he met his future wife of 44 years Jane Ellen McGowan. Jeff is survived by his daughters Mia Marvelli, Katharine Hubbard, son-in-law Brad Hubbard; and his three granddaughters Isabella, McKenna and Delaney. Jeff was preceded in death by his brother Jon (Maureen), and will be dearly missed by his brother Phil Jenkins and sister-in-law Bonnie. He will also be missed by the whole McGowan family - Mary Sessarego, Margaret Raley, Mike and Sue McGowan, Virginia and Mike Goss and Nora and Flynn McDowell. Jeff was an amazing uncle to many nieces and nephews. Jeff enjoyed spending time fishing, working in the yard, boating, traveling, work on cars, going to car shows, being outdoors and being with friends. He most loved spending time with his daughters and granddaughters. He never missed a single Sunday night dinner or a grandkid's sporting event. Jeff dedicated his life to his family. The family wishes to thank the many care givers who helped care for and loved Jeff in recent years, especially Cortina Bingham, the many amazing, caring, staff members of Sunrise of Sacramento and the wonderful nurses and staff at Sutter Hospice. Their exceptional care and love for Jeff will always be remembered and appreciated. In lieu of flowers, please consider sending donations in Jeff Jenkins' honor to Alzheimer's Association or American Diabetes Association. Friends and relatives are invited to attend a celebration in honor of Jeff's life at 2:00 pm Saturday, March 25, 2017 at East Lawn Memorial Park, 4300 Folsom Blvd, Sacramento, California.
