Anthony L. Jenkins, known to friends and family as Tony, passed away on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, at the age of 55. Born on April 6, 1969, in Louisville, Kentucky, Tony leaves behind a legacy of love and kindness that will forever be cherished by those who knew him.

Tony is survived by his devoted wife of nearly 23 years, Becca Jenkins, children, Mason, Emma, and Nox Jenkins, as well as his parents, Rickie and George "Red" Henderson. He is further survived by his brother, Sean (Shannon) Jenkins, sister, Toni Beth Henderson, grandmother, Virginia "Gen" McCoy, Aunt Wendy Vassar, Uncle Lance McCoy, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A celebration of Tony's life will take place at Newcomer Cremations, Funerals & Receptions (3309 Ballard Lane, New Albany) on Sunday, April 14, 2024. Visitation hours will be held from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, followed by a Funeral Service at 2:00 pm.

Tony was a man of remarkable kindness and generosity. His heart overflowed with love, not only for his family and friends but also for the animals he cherished. A true caretaker, he never hesitated to lend a helping hand. Whether it was making soup when a family member was sick, tackling household chores, serving as the entire extended family's IT department, serving his wife coffee each morning with a heart on top, or mastering the art of fixing things, Tony's compassion knew no bounds.

His intelligence and wit were matched only by his ability to connect with others. A gifted communicator, Tony had a knack for articulating thoughts with humor and playfulness, making him a joy to be around. His crazy dance moves and lighthearted spirit brought laughter and warmth to his family.

In his free time, Tony found solace in the pages of David Sedaris books, the adventures of Doctor Who and Led Zeppelin (Kashmir stayed at the top of his all time favorites). He had a sweet tooth for chocolate cake and coconut cream pies, and a love for chicken parmesan. Tony shared a deep and enduring bond with his wife, Becca. Together, they epitomized compatibility, balancing independence with unwavering love and support for each other. They enjoyed long walks and their deep conversations.

He will be deeply missed, but never forgotten.
