In memory of

Henry (Harry) Jenkins

February 4, 1927 -  December 17, 2021

It is with great sadness, we share the passing of Harry Jenkins in his 95th year on December 17th, 2021. The loving husband of the late Maureen (nee Farrell) and dedicated father to Barry (late Gloria), Wendy (Dave), and Gail (Tony). Proud grandfather of Kerry (Nicolas), Amy, Alexander (Crystal Anne), Andrew (Lindsay), Christopher (Debra), Caitlin and great grandfather of Henry, Otis, Nolan, Luke, Caleb and William.
Originally from Ballymena, Northern Ireland Harry moved to Canada in his early twenties and soon built a life with Maureen. He was a dedicated employee of the Toronto Star and an active member in the Leaside Toronto community; be it at Leaside United church, ball diamonds or Memorial Gardens ice rink.
Harry had a uniquely frank and humorous way of expressing himself, endlessly amusing to those who knew him. While he readily shared his opinions and convictions he was always interested hearing those of others. Proud of his Irish heritage, he maintained that connection through his lifetime membership in the Grand Orange Lodge of Canada.
His kind soul will never be forgotten by all those that loved him, his many nieces, nephews, friends in Canada, Ireland, England and Australia.

I am also an Irish background and I used to know Henry from back at Loblaws days as a driver. That’s with great sadness to hear about the loss he was a one of a kind.

Precious memories of Uncle Harry. Great times spent together, good chats, sharing opinions and lively debates! We may have been miles apart but always close in heart.

Our love to Barry, Wendy, Gail and families

Our mother and her family are very sorry for your loss. My mother (Barbara Alford) became good friends with Henry and he will be greatly missed. We all enjoyed talking with him while we were visiting. Barbara is not able to attend the visitation due to a 3rd floor isolation at SRR. We will be thinking of the family.
