1946 - 2012 Obituary Condolences
Jarrel Thaine Simmonds June 15, 1946 - July 2, 2012 Jarrel Thaine Simmonds went home to be with his Lord and Savior in Redding California after a short battle with cancer. He joined the Navy in 1965 and served in Viet Nam in 1967. He spent 32 years in Long Beach as a Letter Carrier with the U.S. Postal Service. The last 28 of those 32 years were on the same route where he walked more than 10 miles every day delivering mail. After retirement, he moved to Bakersfield where he worked for Wal-Mart as a greeter with his constant smile. He later managed River Lakes Multi Storage where the "gentle giant" was well loved by all his renters. No matter where he worked, Jarrel lived his faith by helping others. Jarrel is survived by his wife of 43 years, Marinell; a daughter Janell, and son Matthew, and their families. Private services will be held. www.bakersfield.com/obits
