Troop Todd Jenks, age 33, of Sunshine Acres, passed away unexpectedly on January 24, 2020, at his home.
He was born June 7, 1986, in Roosevelt, to Barry Todd Myore Jenks and Vivian Taveapont. He married Jessica Anne Zamora on July 13, 2016, but they had been together for several years before that.
Troop enjoyed being in the mountains, fishing, playing video games, collecting “Dragon Ball Z”, jamming to music, and cruising around. He was a jokester and a big tease, and was known for singing in the shower. His favorite pastime was eating – he really enjoyed food!
He loved his family, was very close to his nieces and nephews, and liked to “hang out” with his cousins. He was proud to be from Yellowstone!
