O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Timothy Emmitt Jenkins entered into life on September 5, 1955, in Columbia, South Carolina. He was the third of five siblings born to the late John Jenkins, Sr. and Effie Lee Nelson Jenkins. He was called Home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, at Palmetto Health Baptist.
Timothy attended Columbia High School in Columbia, South Carolina. Tim spent many years working as a mechanic in his family business, Jenkins Garage. Later, he was employed by South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation Department, serving in two roles as the Night Supervisor for the Commissary and then as a Job Readiness Training Associate, where he retired after 15 years of tireless and dedicated service. His hobbies were traveling, spending time with his family and friends, and an avid sports fan loving the Pittsburg Steelers. He was an original dance machine in all manner of the movements (original and self-expression). He enjoyed golf, as well as playing cards. Although he is no longer physically with us, his loving and kind spirit will forever remain in the hearts and lives of all those who knew and loved him.
Timothy attended The Brook and later became a member after hearing his anointed Pastor Sim preach just one sermon. He was baptized and rededicated his life to Christ.
He was preceded in death by his father, John Jenkins, Sr., mother, Effie Lee Nelson Jenkins, and one brother, John Jenkins, Jr. Those who will forever cherish his legacy is his loving and devoted wife, Robbie Jenkins of the home; two sisters, Beverly Jenkins Jacobs and Paula Jenkins Silas, both of Columbia; one brother, William Jenkins of Columbia; one stepson Ronyal (Aesha) Watson, Sr.; two grandchildren, Ronyal and Victoria; and a host of nieces, nephews and loving relative and friends.
