James Lee Jenks: 1952 – 2019
A gifted athlete in his youth, a talented earth mover, and a life-long resident of Lyme, Jimmy Jenks was a devoted friend and family man who left his mark on Lyme—whether by walking with a friend through grief or working every road in town. Jimmy was known for his hearty laugh, big love, and generous spirit that sometimes masked the pain in his life. Jimmy died on March 20, 2019. He will be sorely missed.
