Robert Edward Jenkins Jr. age 65

Died on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 in a Corpus Christi hospital following a short illness. Robert was born to Robert Edward and Nelta (Williams) Jenkins Sr. in Cotulla, Texas. Robert was preceded in death by his parents and 2 brothers.

Robert may be remembered by most as the President and General Manager of TASCO Tool Service, a position he has held since 1999. He may also be remembered as a great fan of quarter horse racing. Robert spent many years training and racing quarter horses himself. His family and close friends knew Robert as an authentic cowboy, being raised working cattle with his father, Robert E. Jenkins, Sr., Foreman of the H.D. Storey Ranches in Cotulla, Texas.

Everyone, though, will remember Robert Jenkins as a hard-working, honest businessman and the most loyal friend anyone could have. He will be sorely missed by many.
