Bobby Joseph Jenkins was born in Mobile, AL on November 8, 1945, unto the late Mary Wells and the late Nelson Walker, where he was born a twin with his inseparable sister, Betty. They were raised Catholic and received a high school diploma from the Most Pure Heart of Mary in 1964 in Mobile, AL.

He served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War and upon his Honorable Discharge, he joined his sister, Betty in Cincinnati, OH. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1976 with a B.S. Degree in Accounting.

He was lifelong friends with Michael Freeman, Melvin Reeves, Horace Harris and VT Robinson, and was a big brother and Uncle to a number of family and friends.

Bobby worked for the Cincinnati Public School System as well as a Teacher at Schroeder High School. He will be sorely missed by the students he taught. His favorite things in life were people, music, photography and sports. Anyone who knew Bobby also understood he was an avid football, basketball and baseball fan.

But alas the Lord said it was time and took him home and from his death we can take solace in the following words:

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain. For former things have passed away.” — Revelations 21:4

Bobby is survived by: his three children, Bernadette Monterio, Brian (Tanya) and Jaquan (Erica); loving wife, Marie (Bunny) Jenkins of 35 years; his loving twin, Betty; six grandchildren, whom he loved dearly; brothers, Connie (Willamenia), Darrel (De Wonda), Tyrone, Wayne, Leon and Darrel; sisters, Marjorie, Brenda, Vanessa and Neace; along with a host of nieces, nephews and family.
