Raymond A. Jenkins II, 68, of Bristol, a Bucks County businessman, died Saturday, March 29, of a heart attack at the home of a friend in Philadelphia.
With his sister, Darlette, Mr. Jenkins owned and operated Toad-Ally Snax Inc., a small company that makes chocolate-covered pretzels.
Mr. Jenkins himself performed most facets of the business. He would go to the factory in Bristol, climb on a broken machine, find the problem, and fix it, said his longtime friend, Dawn Dugan.
Then he would put on a business suit and fly around the country, negotiating with executives at Walmart, K-Mart, Sam's Club, BJ's, and supermarket chains about carrying the company's products.
