"The Town of Oxford is mourning the loss of former long-time Mayor Lloyd Jenkins. Lloyd Jenkins, a former Mayor and educator at the Oxford Regional High School, had an incredible impact on our Town. As a Mayor, Mr. Jenkins was a community champion who took great pride in our Town. His passion for serving others will not be forgotten.

Our deepest condolences go to Lloyd Jenkins’s family and all those he touched throughout his life.”
