Robert Lee Jenkins-Koch

Robert Lee Jenkins-Koch was born on April 17, 1951, in Fort Worth, Texas, to Robert and Lavenia Jenkins. Robert was an extraordinary individual and loving partner for 43 years. He was the type of person who made friends easily wherever he went.

Robert spent time as a commercial artist for a variety of companies after he graduated high school. Later on in life, he held a position as a Travel Agent for ten years and enjoyed taking trips to England. Robert adored England and all the wonderful people he met there throughout the years. Christmas was Robert’s favorite season of the year! Businesses and friends alike would reach out to him and request that he help decorate their spaces. Some of Robert’s other enjoyments in life were the performing arts, entertaining, and cooking. (And when he cooked, he REALLY cooked!)

Robert was known by many for the jackets that he designed for the Ms. Texas Beauty Pageant. As he grew older, Robert, spent time on the board for Ms. Fort Worth Beauty Pageant. He sat on the board for two floral shops as well as five other boards for various industries. Robert stayed active as a Volunteer Ambassador for DFW International Airport for thirteen and a half years.

Robert Lee Jenkins is proceeded in death by his parents. He leaves behind his Spouse, Charles Koch, and many other family and friends. He will be greatly missed by all.

Robert and Charlie hosted an evening get together for my sister, Rita, cousin Ginger, cousin Deloris, friend Kathy and I while we were visiting Deloris Koch for her and Carl's 50th wedding anniversary. They were so kind and thoughtful for never having met three of us before. My sister Rita was in a wheelchair and they treated her like a queen. This was such a wonderful evening that it will forever warm my heart. Thank you Charlie for sharing your love and Robert's with us. God bless.

Robert was one of the most vibrant and creative persons I've ever known, and always fun to be around. He has been such a help to my Uncle Charlie, helping care for my Grandmother, my Aunt Helen, and own mother, Vina. Well done, good and faithful servant! We will all miss you so much. Rest peacefully, sweet friend.
