He was born Sept. 28, 1933, in Cleveland, to Gustav and Sylvia (nee Williams) Janke. He was married to the love of his life Geraldine (nee Fink) May 1, 1954. They were happily married 60 years, having renewed their vows on their 50th wedding anniversary. Bill and Gerrie had four loving children, Linda, Kathleen (Robert), Michael (deceased) and William F. Jr. Bill was very devoted to his family and active in the lives of children and grandchildren, driving, camping and coaching. He instilled a great sense of faith and family, he never met a stranger. He was a proud grandpa to Jennifer, William F. III (April Lubera) and Holley, was looking forward to being a great-grandpa and was an uncle to many. Bill was a retired firefighter engineer for the city of Miami Beach, Fla., a licensed plumber and played semi-pro football.

JENNINGS, GERALDINE  
GERALDINE JENNINGS 1936-2014 Geraldine "Jeri" McMahen Jennings, 78, of Las Vegas, passed away peacefully Nov. 6, 2014, after a year and half battle with brain cancer. Born in Magnolia, Ark., she moved to Las Vegas in 1962, yet never lost her southern accent and continued to be a "southern belle." After working at the Nevada Test Site during the last above ground nuclear test in 1962, she pursued her lifelong passion for dance and tried out on the Strip. The dancing career didn't go as desired and instead she found a deeper passion as a teacher helping children succeed in school. She obtained a teaching degree at NSU (now UNLV) and taught for 27 years, 25 in Boulder City. She excelled with kids who had difficulty in other classes, they thrived with the help of "Ms. J." She later obtained masters and specialist degrees in education and spent the greatest portion of her career as a reading specialist. She served as volleyball coach, drill team coach and even put on magic shows at school assemblies. She spent summers leading global excursions that allowed her students to see the world. Jeri was an extreme extravert and would start talking to anybody, make friends anywhere and invite complete strangers into her home. Giving money, time and passion to so many things and people, she could be generous to a fault. She believed in using the "good china" now. "It does not matter if it breaks. Enjoy it." She believed there is nothing you can't do, just go try it. Her presence will be missed and remembered. She was preceded in death by her husband, of 53 years, LeRoy Jennings. "Jeri" leaves behind her sons, Richard of Las Vegas, and Dave (Anne) of Alpine, Utah; grandchildren, Scott (Karalee), Amy, Natalie, Haley, Elizabeth and Megan Noel; and most affectionately, she leaves behind her dogs, Pepper and Misty. Memorial services will be at 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 1, at Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive, Boulder City. In lieu of flowers, please do something special for someone you care about. Reach out today.

PATTON, GARY  
GARY PATTON Gary Maurice Patton, of Las Vegas, passed away peacefully Nov. 7, 2014. His friends and family will remember his sense of humor ("I'd like a table closer to a waiter"), the fact that he was always a gentleman and his tremendous work ethic. Before he was a teenager, Gary was delivering papers and cleaning pools to help out after his father's untimely passing. Gary rarely worked only one job at a time. He came to Las Vegas in the late 1960's and worked for Avis and for Hughes Air West. He went on to found American Security Patrol, which was the largest construction security firm in Nevada in the 1970's (the hundreds of people who worked there will remember him as "Sam 1"). He is joining his father, Godfrey Patton; his mother, Catherine Patton Bourland, "Mum;" his brother, Trevor; and his sister, Donna Hara. Gary is survived by daughter, Shannon Whitehead Colpitts and her husband, Than Colpitts; his beloved, Janet Lowe, and her daughters, Stephanie Hara and Kimberly; and his nieces, Candi ("Butch") Carlyon and Tiffani; and nephew, Taz Hara. Somewhere in Heaven Gary is sitting under a tree, pretending to fish, so that none of the angels bother him while he reads his book. Private memorial for friends and family will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 21.
