Larry was born to Frank and Ellen Jenkins in Billings, MT on July 11, 1941.
Larry's parents were sheep ranchers near Hardin, MT in the early years of his life, later buying a small farm on the Little Big Horn River, near Hardin, MT. Larry attended a country school and graduated from Hardin High School in 1959. Larry attended college at University of Montana, Missoula, MT; only spending a short time there. Then he joined the US Air Force spending four years at Nellis Air Force Base, Las Vegas, Nevada. After discharge in 1964 Larry applied to the Montana Air National Guard and Idaho Air National Guard. Larry worked at Gowan Field, Boise, ID as a Jet Mechanic and later as a Dock Chief. He retired after 31 years.
Larry spent many hours taking care of his lawn and making sure his car and pickup were always in perfect running condition. He was always available to help family and friends. Larry and Lillian traveled to Alaska to visit his son, Gregory. They also traveled to Hawaii, California, and the Oregon Coast.
Larry is survived by his wife, Lillian and two sons, Douglas (Julene) Boise/Ketchum, ID and Gregory (Julie) of Lodge Pole, NE; three granddaughters, Shaela, Emma, and Lily Jenkins. Larry loved his granddaughters with all his heart and was so very proud of the young women they've become.
There will be no formal memorial at Larry's choice. Larry will be interred at the Idaho State Veteran Cemetery.
