So sorry to know of Dick’s passing from this life. He was a good guy and tolerated Pat’s 99 friends.  Always enjoyed his music at our parties.  
Rest In Peace Dick we will miss you.

We don't always realize how quickly a life can be taken until it happens.  We are so sorry to hear of Dick's passing.  You are in our prayers. The holidays will be difficult.
Time will ease the pain and loss.  Be good to yourself.  We love you.  Fran and Jim Postma

In 1985 we found ourselves fighting fire near the RoundBarn of Harney County. After some late night firefighting we camped out on site with our 2 small firefighting engines.

The next morning we awoke surrounded by cattle and 2- cowboys on horseback moving the herd away from and out of danger from the fire.

Later that day the fire kicked up and we contained the flare up with our 200 gallon engines.

Later that day we noticed a helicopter flying around and then landing near us. Thinking it was some fire big wigs we went over to check in with the pilot.

The pilot was Dick Jenkins who invited us down to his ranch to camp out and to provide us with dinner and early morning breakfast prior to heading back out for some mop up on the fire.

Dick and his wifes hospitality allowed me to forever fall in love with The SE Oregon outback. I never forgot that experience and anytime I was in the area I visited the Round Barn and the visitor Center the Jenkins family operated to protect and honor this important historical area.

I m sorry for Dicks passing but will be forever greatful  for the experience and short connection to this great pioneer family.

My sincere condolences to the family. A good man will always be remembered!
