Mr. Gary Leonard Jenkins Sr.
We are so sorry to hear about the loss of our good friend. Always so positive and happy, Gary will certainly be missed by so many. It was always good to see him at the dart tournaments. Love to Nunni and family.
It was always a pleasure to be around Gary. He had a great sense of humor and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. I had a tremendous respect for him. Gary, you will be missed.
I still remember back in '93 when he asked me to come up to throw A league darts with his team just forming at WEOH. What a leader. My favorite memory was playing 2x01 with 182 left, he tossed 120 with a dart left and looked at me to ask if I was OK with a 2. Sure, he hit his 180 and I took it out next dart. Those were the days. RIP friend.
I have known Gary for only a short time, about 8 or 9 months. We came to know each other while playing on the same APA pool team. In that interval, I came to respect him as an excellent player and hard worker. Gary was always calm and matter-of-fact. Throughout our entire acquaintance, I never heard him whine about anything.
There were weeks during our pool league play where Gary would appear for a match, play, and then drive 3 or 4 hours to reach a job site where he had to operate a crane the next day. He was a guy who just did what had to be done and never complained.
My sympathies go out to Gary's family. My prayers are with you all as you cope with the loss of your most loved partner, anchor, and friend.
I was surprised to hear that Gary had passed away. He always had a smile, even when he lost a dart game. He was a great guy and will be missed by everyone. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
