William “Billy” Jenkins, Jr., age 64, a longtime resident of Diamondhead, MS, joined our Lord October 29, 2022. Billy grew up in the suburbs of Washington, DC and, after graduating from West Nottingham Academy, he joined the Army. After he retired from the Army, he lived in Florida before settling in Diamondhead to be closer to family. In Bill’s later years, the joy of his life were his rescued pets, Sam and Skippy, who he always put before himself, and his neighbors and members of Jacob’s Well Baptist Church who provided care and friendship.
