Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 14, 2017, at Huntington First Church of the Nazarene by Dallas Moore. Burial will follow at Spring Valley Memory Gardens. Ezra was born on December 28, 1925, in Kingston, W.Va., the son of the late Edward and Ida Mae Jenkins Thompson. He was preceded in death by sisters, Edith Legg, Ruth DeWiggins, Helen Clemons, Naomi Pauley, Zina Hamlin and Dorothy Berry, and brothers, Lawrence Jenkins, Edward Jenkins and Thomas Jenkins. Ezra was a retired salesman for Lever Brothers and Wilson Milk. He was a proud veteran of the US Army, having served in WWII and the Korean War. He was able, along with his wife who is also a veteran, to travel on the Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., in September 2015. He was a diligent Bible scholar and a member of First Church of the Nazarene as well as the Gideon organization. He served as Sunday School Superintendent and teacher for more than 30 years. He loved serving God and spending time talking about the scriptures. One of his other greatest joys was spending time with his family.
