Paul A. Jenkins

August 14, 1947 ~ June 2, 2017 (age 69)

Paul Jenkins, age 69, passed away on Friday, June 2, 2017 at home surrounded by his loving family.

He was born on August 14, 1947 in Saratoga Springs, NY, the son of the late George R. Jenkins and Anne Uscavitch Jenkins.

Paul graduated from Saratoga Springs High School, class of 1965 and attended HVCC and LSU. Paul was self-employed in the construction industry for many years where he found his true passion as a carpenter.  Over the year Paul established himself as a knowledgeable carpenter with a discerning eye for building projects. The achievement he was most proud of was turning the old family garage into a beautiful two-bedroom apartment complete with spiral stairs. He did all the work by himself. Paul truly enjoyed the time he spent with his family and friends, taking care of the house, and helping others.  He was strong and tough, but possessed a wonderful sense of humor and wit. He was a free spirit who loved to laugh and made all those around him do likewise with his famous one-liners. As a young man, he excelled in all sports, even starring on the Louisiana State University rugby team. Like his mother, he had a passion for horse racing and counted many trainers and jockeys as personal friends.

Paul is survived by his son, Paul J. Jenkins; brother, George R. Jenkins (Carole); nephews Justin and Colin Jenkins (Christina).

He was preceded in death by his parents.

At the request of the family and Paul’s wishes there will be no calling hours nor funeral service.

Arrangements are under the direction of Compassionate Funeral Care, Inc, 402 Maple Ave., Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
