Contra Costa County Fire
LeRoy "Roy" Jenkins, a Senior Fire Fighter at Engine Co. 9 of the Contra Costa County Consolidated Fire District left this world July 2, 1974 doing what he loved most, giving of himself for others. His death came as a result of a heart attack during a grass fire, and at a time when he was engrossed in his work and and seeking no quarters for his physical well being. Prior to joining Old Mt. Diablo Fire District 18 years ago, Brother Jenkins worked as a carpenter. None out-performed Le Roy Jenkins, in gentleness, kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness and dedication. He gave his all - for his family, his friends, his country in World War II and for the fire service and comrades he loved.
