February 4, 1991 – July 19, 2020
Dylan Reid Jenkins, 29 passed suddenly on July 19, 2020. Dylan was a prolific, fearless activist for social justice, equality and peace. He spoke for the voiceless, stating “Silence is Not an Option”. He impacted his friends, family and many others by his activism, friendship and wit.
As the family “Super Chef” his love and kindness manifested as delicious meals; his cooking led to his career. He enjoyed Mother Nature, the outdoors, hiking, and the wildlife. He tenderly cared for his great-grandmother until her passing.
Dylan’s absence has left many heartbroken. A void in the lives of his parents, grandparents, and his beloved brother Cory, as well as his extensive family, countless number of friends, and his three faithful and adored companions, Dexter, Meeko and Diesel.
Dylan’s inurnment service will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2020, at 12:30, at Cave Hill Cemetery. Please meet at the Grinstead Drive Entrance and adhere to current state and city mandates for social gatherings.
Family and friends will gather Saturday evening to Celebrate Dylan’s life. Information is available via his family and friend’s social media sites.
