Clarence Jenkins, Sr.

Clarence Jenkins, Sr. entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. He was born on June 1, 1941 in North Carolina.  “Sonny”, as he was affectionately known by his family and friends was a very comical person. 

He enjoyed fishing and crabbing at the Jordan Bridge Park Pier and he loved to sit on his front porch and talk with family and friends.  Sonny was employed by Royster’s Fertilizer Plant for many years until his retirement. He was predeceased by his son, Clarence Jenkins, Jr. and his wife, Barbara C. Jenkins.  

Left to cherish his memory is his daughter, Barbara Ann Jenkins, two grandchildren; Stephen L. “Ponch” Jenkins, Sr. and Ebony Owens (William), five great-grandchildren; Stephen L. Jenkins, Jr, Amarion Harrell, Arieana Williams, Aniyah Owens, and Myanah Owens.  He is also survived by five step-children; Gregory McCoy, Sr. (Gayla) of Orlando, FL, Reginald McCoy (Renee) of Norfolk, VA, Donald McCoy, Cassandra Armstrong (Mickey) and Anita Moyler (Benny) of Chesapeake, VA, twelve step-grandchildren, a cousin Mary Ann Anthony, and a special friend, Wanda Gay.

We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have lost someone we love in death. The Bible brings us much comfort. Revelation 21:3, 4, and 1 Corinthians 15:26 state that God will do away with all cause we have for suffering, as well as sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted us and it is our hope that these thoughts will comfort you and your family as well.
