<div itemprop="description">Jenkins, Jerome Wayne &ldquo;Jerry&rdquo; <br />It is with broken hearts that the family of Jerome &ldquo;Jerry&rdquo; Jenkins announces his courageous and peaceful passing on the morning of Sunday, November 29, 2015 at the QEII Health Sciences Center. Born in Halifax on November 10, 1943, Jerry was the son of the late Alfred and Velma (Burgess) Jenkins. His colourful and entertaining life involved many successful ventures including mastering the car sales business at MacLellan Lincoln Mercury and Wood Motors Ford in Halifax. Ever the conversationalist, Jerry could amuse anyone with his mischievous smile and lively stories. A heart like no other, he was a kind and generous soul, making lifelong friends wherever he went. Jerry loved spending time with his grandchildren and could be found treating them to a meal, finding directions to the nearest hockey rink or baseball field and picking up candy to fill in their pockets. <br />He is survived by his loving children, Jason (Amanda), Lisa (Edward) and their mother, Jacqueline Jenkins; his adoring and heartbroken grandchildren, Matthew, Zachary and Tori; his brothers Eric, Dennis, Barry and Kevin; his sisters Barbara, Carol, Jacqueline, Sherry and Arlene; and many nieces and nephews who all held a very special place in his heart. Besides his parents, Jerry was predeceased by his brothers Clyde, Ronnie, and Brian; his sister Karen and his sister-in-law Paulette.<br />Jerry&rsquo;s family would like to extend their most heartfelt thanks to all of the doctors, nurses and personal care workers at the QEII who provided care and comfort throughout his stay. A very special thank you to Lisa Sullivan and the staff of Freeman&rsquo;s Little New York who went above and beyond to show Jerry just how special he was. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Visitation for Jerry will be held on Thursday, December 3, 2015 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. in Halifax at Atlantic Funeral Home, 6552 Bayers Rd. A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday December 4, 2015 at 11 a.m. in Dartmouth at Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St. Reception to follow at Freeman&rsquo;s Little New York on Dutch Village Road.
