Rick Alan Jenkins, 59, of Taneytown died on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, 2018 at Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore.  Born October 8, 1958 at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, MD, he was the son of the late Kenneth and Margaret (Caples) Jenkins.  He was the devoted husband of Kimberly (Bankert) Jenkins, to whom he was married for 40 years.

Rick was a graduate of Francis Scott Key High School, class of ’77, where he was a standout basketball player.  He still holds the record at FSK and in Carroll County for most points scored in a game (60) and was the first player ever from Carroll County to be named to the Baltimore All-Metro 1st Team.  Rick was a Construction Foreman with Manganaro Midatlantic in Beltsville, MD for 18 years.  He enjoyed reading, especially westerns and about history and sports.  He was a collector of ball caps, and was an avid fan of the Baltimore Ravens and the Maryland Terps.  He was very active with the former Taneytown Jaycees and enjoyed working with the Haunted Barn event each year.  He enjoyed having his front porch as the gathering spot for Taneytown parades over the years.  Rick was a thoughtful and caring person whose greatest joy in life was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
