Harold Sanford "Sandy" Jenkins

May 24, 1954 — August 31, 2021

Harold Sanford “Sandy” Jenkins, age 67, of Greeneville, Tennessee, died August 31, 2021, at the James H. Quillen VA Medical Center in Mountain Home, Tennessee.

Sandy was born May 24, 1954, in Austin, Texas to the late Walter Dayton Jenkins and Gaye Yvonne Sanford Jenkins.
Sandy was an insightful, accomplished, versatile man who wore many hats and had many passions throughout his life. He served his country as a member of the United States Air Force, he earned multiple degrees and certifications, as well as serving his community for many years as a valued member of the Debusk Fire Department.

When he had time for himself, Sandy loved to spend it with the four dogs who were his dearest companions. Taking them out for walks, going hiking, traveling, and engaging in personal research projects were always considered time well spent.

He is survived by his special companion, Pattie Jenkins, and several close friends. There wasn’t anyone who crossed his path that their life was not profoundly changed.
