Ted ‘Dane’ Jenny Jr.

On Wednesday, May 9th, 2013, our most loved, Ted Jenny Jr. passed away at the Bowers Hospice House following a short battle with pancreatic cancer. He was in his 79th year.

Known affectionately as “Dane” all his life, Ted Jenny Jr. was born on January 31st, 1934, at Oak Grove. He was the son of the late Ted and Hattie Acord Jenny. His brother, Walter Ray Jennings has preceded him in death.

Dane has been a lifelong resident of the Oak Grove community. Dane and his family worshiped at the Oak Grove Christian Church. He has been a member for the past 54 years, where he served as deacon for the past 42. Dane worked as a heavy equipment mechanic in the mining industry, retiring from Wind River Resources. In his leisure time, he just loved being outdoors, working in his garage on his antique cars, four-wheeling and fishing.

In addition to his parents and brother, Dane was preceded in death by his first wife, Peggy Webb Jenny and an infant son, Jamey Wade Jenny.

He leaves to cherish his memory, his beloved wife of 41 years, Janice Hardin Jenny; he was the loving “Daddy and Dad” to his children, Debbie Adams and her husband, Steve of Epperly, Terry Lough of Beckley; sons, Michael Jenny of Florida and Philip Jenny and his wife, Victoria of North Carolina; he was the proud “Pa Papaw” of Holly Adams, Bradley Lough and his wife, Natasha, Dustin Lough, Ashley Garris and her husband Joe, Kiefer and Colby Jenny; the great grandfather of Bradley Lough III; the fond brother of Virginia “Jenny” Rice and her husband, Richard “Buddy” and Scott Jenny and his wife, Shirley.

On Friday, May 10th, at 2 p.m. we will remember the life of Dane with a “Service of Remembrance” at the Oak Grove Christian Church. Kelly Gowen will be officiating. Dane will be laid to rest in the Oak Grove Christian Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends from noon until the hour of the service.

The honor of carrying Dane has been given to Bradley Lough, Dustin Lough, Joseph Garris, Brandon Deboard, Richard Rice Jr., and Randy Jennings.

The family suggests donations of sympathy can be given to the Bowers Hospice House, PO Box 1472, Beckley, WV 25802.

May He Rest In Peace.
