October 29, 1930 –
January 14, 2016
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rex Jenks in Canal Flats, BC.
Rex was born in Cardston, Alberta on October 29, 1930. He was predeceased by his mother Ellen, father Jim, sister Avril Lobban and brother Ed.
Rex will be greatly missed by his brother Bill (Bev), sons Dallas, Bert and Bart as well as his granddaughters, Lori and Jennifer and grandson Max along with his nieces and nephews.
Rex was an amazing father and grandfather. He loved fishing, camping, golfing and working on cars. He did not like to sit still for very long, preferring to always be doing something. Rex was in the armed forces before returning to Kimberley to raise his children and where he began working as a millwright for Cominco (Teck) until his retirement.
Rex moved to Canal Flats to be closer to his grandchildren and enjoyed the quiet life the area provided.
There will be no service but a Celebration of Life will be held at the Kimberley Elks Hall on Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
