William "Billy" Jenkins Obituary

William K. "Billy" Jenkins, of Milton a cherished patriarch, and respected businessman, passed away peacefully on the first day of January 2024, at his residence in Hancock Park in Quincy, Massachusetts. Born in the historic city of Boston, MA, Billy grew up in the heart of Savin Hill and was a proud alumnus of Dorchester High School and Suffolk University, where he laid the educational foundation for his future successes.

After completing his education, Billy embarked on a fulfilling career as the Owner and Operator of Jenkins Plumbing & Heating. His dedication to his work was evident to all who knew him, and his love for his job was surpassed only by the joy he found in spending quality time with his grandchildren.

Billy was the beloved husband of the late Janice E. (Maher), with whom he shared a lifetime of love and companionship. He was a devoted father to Scott Jenkins and his wife Colleen of Mansfield and Keith Jenkins and his wife Kathleen of Hanover. His role as a grandfather always brought a smile to his face, and he will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren Emily, Chris, and Coleman of Mansfield, and John, Matt, Colin, and Archer of Hanover. Bill was a brother to Edward Jenkins of Marshfield and Gregory Jenkins of Milton, and his presence in their lives will be deeply missed.

Those who knew Billy understood that he was a man of many virtues. His hands were skilled and handy, always ready to fix a problem or create something new. His heart was generous, never hesitating to help a friend in need or to contribute to his community in meaningful ways. Billy's sense of humor was legendary; he had a natural ability to lighten the mood and make people laugh, bringing joy to those around him.

Billy's interests were as diverse as they were heartfelt. He had a passion for his work that never dimmed, even in retirement. His greatest pleasure, however, was found in the laughter and company of his beloved grandchildren. Whether he was sharing stories, imparting wisdom, or simply being present in the moment, Billy's love for his family was the cornerstone of his life.

The legacy Billy leaves behind is one of love, hard work, and laughter. He will be remembered as a man who would do anything for his family friends. His memory will live on in the hearts of those he touched, and his influence will continue to be felt by all who were fortunate enough to know him.

As we say goodbye to William K. "Billy" Jenkins, we celebrate a life well-lived and a man well-loved. His journey was one of purpose and joy, and while we mourn his passing, we take comfort in the knowledge that his spirit will remain with us.
