Robert Wayne Jennings, 72, passed away on Friday, Oct. 27, 2023 from complications of metastatic liver cancer.
He was born Apr. 3, 1951 in Ronceverte to the late Hilda Morgan Jennings and Warren G. Jennings.
In addition to being preceded in death by his parents, his passing was preceded by his brother, Thomas Elwood Jennings, and his grandson, Thomas Whitman LaRue.
Left to honor his memory are his loving husband of 47 years, David Katz; brother, Warren Jennings; his son, Kevin LaRue (Elizabeth); his grandchildren, Tiffany (Austin), Levi (Destiny), Whitney, Wallace and Wrenleigh LaRue; and his three great-grandchildren, Aiden, Oakley and Elise.
A native of Lewisburg, Robert moved to Fort Lauderdale after high school, where he was an artist specializing in acrylic sculptures and engravings. Shortly after meeting the love of his life, he secured a job at Prospect Plastics in Fort Lauderdale, where he would remain until he retired, as a design engineer.
Robert had many hobbies over the years, from showing dogs to RV camping, but nothing made him happier than spending time with his family and friends. He was especially grateful for the opportunity to be a father to his late brother’s son and excelled as a parent and grandparent.
The family will have a private graveside service.
In lieu of flowers, donations towards funerary costs may be made to Wallace and Wallace at 884 N. Jefferson St., Lewisburg, WV 24901, Re:RWJennings.
