So sorry to hear this. He’s from the small town where I grew up. I knew his brother. I thought he was one of the best announcers in Indy racing.Greg Clifford wrote
Sorry to read this. I loved hearing his voice calling a race. I met him in California before a race at Fontana. At least with his wife now.

Such sad news! He didn’t last long after his diagnosis, but his golden voice and wonderful personality will survive as long as we, the fans, have memory.

Incredibly sad…. Bob hosted Speedweek on ESPN, I just loved that show. His genuineness always came thru in the booth with anyone but particularly Ned and Benny. God Bless…..

So very sad
Remember meeting him in the mid 60’s when he crash landed his glider in a field at the neighbors.
It turned out to be a big neighborhood get together, and his father Wayne Jenkins, the CBS channel 10 weather man even came down and joined us.
Always enjoyed listening to him on my tractor radio calling the 500 each May.
Rest in Piece Bob.
I’m sure the good Lord has a race waiting for you to call in Heaven.
James Huber
Will never forget his calling of the finish of the 1992 Indy 500 between Al Jr and Scott Goodyear. It will live in my memory forever. He was a true legend.
Karen Kershaw Barnard
Rest in peace, Bob. May your loved ones, colleagues and admirers (like me) be comforted by the memories of happy times.

R.I.P. Bob Jenkins thank you for all the memories at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Thank you for wonderful information I learned from your work. I bet Bob Jenkins and Benny Parsons are calling Nascar races from heaven and Jim Nabors is singing Back Home Again In Indiana.

Loved him when he did the nascar races on espn. With Benny Parsons and Ned Jarrett .
Dave Morris
The most recognizable voice in motorsports, next to Tom Carnegie.
Michael Hudgins
Bob stepped in at the last minute and hosted one of the fund raising events for the Kenny Irwin Jr. Foundation a few years ago. He was kind, funny and consummately professional. He will be missed.
Ray Ervin
Bob Jenkins Benny Parsons and Ned Jarrett. The three of them were the best race broadcasters ever and there will never be anyone like them. Bob Jenkins was a phenomenal race broadcaster and loved to hear him broadcast NASCAR races. Rest in peace Bob Jenkins

A legend. He is the voice of racing for me. One of the soundtracks to my life. Rest In Peace, Mr. Jenkins.

I met a few years ago here in Crawfordsville were he moved to. One of the nicest people ever. I’ll never forget when he said it would be 20 bucks for a photo and then just laughed and laughed!! Awesome guy!
