  Kyle will be dearly missed by his loving wife Katherine (Richter) Jenkins, his sons, Garrett and Owen Jenkins, his mother, Dorothy Jenkins (John Terrell), brother, Dustin Jenkins (Manar Rafkah Jenkins), nieces, Bridgett, Noura and Juliett, grandmothers, Dorothy Rood and Judith Jenkins, and many aunts and uncles, Peggy (Tim) Bell, Jimmy (Debbie) Rood, Richard (Cindy) Rood, Ernie (Jennifer) Rood, Carolyn Rood, and Robin (Todd) Gerber.  He was also loved by many cousins, Ryan and Eric Bell, Sarah Rood, Meghan Milliones, Amanda Crasper, Ben Rood and Mollie Gerber, along with his in-laws, Neil, Connie and Will Richter.  Kyle was predeceased by his loving father, David Jenkins, paternal grandfather, Bobby Jenkins and his maternal grandfather, Jimmie Rood.

  Kyle’s most recent employer was Steeger USA in Inman where he worked in the electrical department.  He was a hard worker and loved his job and the friends and co-workers who were so supportive of him. 

  Kyle’s family and friends will miss his sense of humor, infectious laugh, bear hugs and the love that he showed to everyone.  He had a heart for others and was always the first person to give to those in need.
