He attended Marshall University, The Northwestern University School of Dentistry, and St. Louis University School of Dentistry where he earned a degree in Orthodontics. He was a veteran of the United States Navy, serving in the Pacific on the U.S.S. Mansfield during World War II. He practiced as an orthodontist for many decades, and was responsible for many, many beautiful smiles in the Huntington and Tri-State community. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife of 62 years, Jacqueline Mason Jennings, and his sister Sue Ellen Boggs. He is survived by his brother C. Richard “Dick” Jennings of Charleston, West Virginia; his children Janet Jennings of El Cajon, California; David Jennings of Taos, New Mexico; Patricia “Patty” Jennings Sweeney (Robert “Bo”) of Huntington, West Virginia; and William “Bill” Jennings (Kristin) of Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, grandchildren Sarah Jennings, Mason Jennings and Robert “Chip” Sweeney, as well as numerous granddogs and grandcats. His family members would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to his caregiver, Jessie Enochs, and to Carol McMaster and Carol Kipp for their years of dedicated service to Bob and Jacquie. A memorial service will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church on Saturday, December 28, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., with visitation beginning at 12:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Huntington YMCA or to Trinity Episcopal Church.
From: Chip Ritter Nov 9 2019 9:06AM It was a tough day to hear of your father’s passing, but I also knew what an amazing life he left and legacy he is leaving. If we could achieve half of what his resume included, we would be a great person. We all need mentors and coaches to guide us through life. His example is one for the record to follow. Chip Ritter, Miami University 89’. Love and Honor ! From: Cindy Clay Nov 16 2019 11:21PM We will certainly miss Mr. Jennings' smile and friendly spirit on 12th Avenue. Blessings to the family in this time of loss.

From: Grant McGuire Dec 22 2019 11:44AM Condolences, but let’s remember a wonderful man. One story- Bob was a golf partner of mine 30 years ago I was looking for a cigar or something halfway down number one fairway at Guyan for a nicotine craving (I gave it all up soon thereafter ) and he gave me his chewing tobacco. Bob said he prescribed it for me. Was he a great dentist, friend and golf partner or what?
