Obituary

Jenkins, George David Lee - passed peacefully on Friday, September 11th, 2020 in his 74th year. Son of the late George and Margaret Jenkins of Tillsonburg, and devoted husband to Anne. George and Anne celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in July of this year. Beloved father of Nicole and husband Stefan Marath of Tillsonburg and Ryan and wife Melissa Jenkins of Cambridge. Loving grandfather to Ryan’s children Logan, Bishop, Quinn, Grayson and Belle.
George attended highschool in Tillsonburg as well as Ridley College in St. Catharines. Following the completion of his undergraduate degree in history at the University of Western Ontario, George and Anne moved to Vancouver where George completed his law degree at the University of British Columbia. After graduating he returned to Tillsonburg where he articled under Judge Groom. George completed the bar admission course at Osgoode Hall in Toronto and was called to the bar in 1974. He practiced professionally in his hometown of Tillsonburg.
George will be sadly missed in Tillsonburg by his family, friends, colleagues and clients. Known as a man of fairness and generosity he touched the lives of many. His acts of kindness in reaching out to those in need were done quietly and with selflessness. George was a lifelong member and supporter of the Eden Baptist Church. George was a strong supporter of his community and was active in a variety of community services and clubs. He was a regular at several local coffee shops where he was kept apprised of community affairs and events.
As an entertaining storyteller, openness and humour were signature characteristics. He had a love for golf, travel and great food shared with friends. What George cherished most in life was his love for family and friends. He will be missed but never forgotten.

We have lived next door to Nicole for over 12 years. We had the pleasure of meeting George a couple of times when he was over for a visit. Our deepest condolences to the Jenkins family. Remember, as long as he is in your heart you will never be alone as he will always be with you.
