Mr. John Jenkins of Hartford passed away Monday, February 1, 2016 at his home surrounded by his loving family.  He was 87. 

John was born August 15, 1928 in Philadelphia, PA to the late Jullian Talmadge Jenkins and Irene Martha Smith Jenkins.  He spent many years in the furniture business as a salesman, and was a proud United States Army veteran.  John was an active member of Hartford First United Methodist Church and enjoyed his Sunday school class and bible study group immensely. Following the example of Christ, he worked closely with the Enterprise Christian Mission delivering meals to those in need.  John possessed a gracious spirit and enjoyed spending time playing Bingo with his friends at the Harford Senior Citizens' Center. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. 

John is survived by his loving wife, Lillian Gillenwater Jenkins; children: Patti Coffman, David John Jenkins, Scott Scoggins, Jeri Bendot, Kelly Scoggins and Lori Kimball; sister, Barbara Geiger; and other extended family and a host of friends. 

The family respectfully requests that you honor John's memory with donations to the Hartford First United Methodist Church’s Sunday School Program. 

A private family memorial for John will be held in Southwest Florida.
