It is with deep sadness that the family of David Jenkins announce his passing on Thursday, August 2, 2018, at the age of 59 years. Dave was born on November 10, 1958 to Malcolm and Edna Jenkins in Hamiota, Manitoba but was raised in Sarnia, Ontario with his 2 older brothers Don and Dennis. The family then moved to North Bay, Ontario where his 2 younger siblings Dee and Daryl were born.
Dave met his wife Bianca in Edmonton, AB and settled down to start a family. Dave found his passion in coaching youth football and co-founded the Edmonton Eagles football club and enjoyed great success in his career with Ben Moss Jewelers. Later in life Dave met his second wife Linda and worked along-side his eldest son Matthew.
Sadly, not long after his second marriage he began to lose his battle with mental illness and succumbed to addiction. Dave will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, caring co-worker and boss as well as an inspiring and mentoring football coach. His life lives on through the people he has touched along the way and the stories they tell.
Dave is survived by his two sons Matthew David Jenkins and Andrew Michael Jenkins and leaving behind former wives Bianca and Linda.
On August 2, 2018 Dave finally found the peace he was looking for and now is in his final resting place.
