JENSEN – Dennis Arden

On Friday September 17, 2010 Dennis Arden Jensen, husband of June, father of Twyla (Duane) Anderson, Thane (Colette) Jensen and grandfather of Kendra, Elyse, Rielle, and Kordel passed away at the age of 70.

Dennis was born on October 7, 1939 at Gull Lake, Saskatchewan and lived his formative years in Swift Current. He graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1961. Most of his early career in the Oil and Gas Industry was situated in Alberta and Saskatchewan. However, in later years his work involved international opportunities which took him to Africa, Indonesia, Russia and Hungary. Dennis enjoyed his leisure time with friends at the Riverside Club where he was a long time member. He had a passion and amazing talent for baseball. The family would like to express their appreciation to Dr. David Falk, Dr. Martin LaBrie, staff and volunteers at Agape Hospice for their unconditional loving care and support.

REST IN PEACE, Dennis

A private internment will take place in Verlo, Saskatchewan at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Memorial donations may be made directly to the Agapé Hospice, 1302 – 8 Avenue N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1B8 Telephone: (403) 282-6588.

    Thane & Family,

    Dabney and I were very sad to see the news. A difficult time for everyone. There is little that can be said, other than to remind you that we are thinking about you and your family, and here if there is anything we can do. I am pleased that we had an opportunity to meet your dad, if only briefly. I know he will be missed.

  7. It was with great shock and sorrow to hear of Dennis’s passing. My thoughts and prayers will be with the family. I worked with Dennis after he came out of retirement about ten years ago and always enjoyed catching up with him when we would run into each other in the plus 15. I will always carry his smile with me.

    To: Dennis’s Family & Friends

    I was saddened to read of Dennis’s passing in the Herald.

    I had the great fortune to have worked with Dennis at Gulf Canada in 1978-79. He was a wonderful supervisor and taught me a lot about the oil patch. It was one of my first assignments. I will never forget his joveal nature and kindness.

    In subsequent years I would occasionally meet Dennis while walking in downtown Calgary. He would never fail to give me a warm welcome and a big smile. We would always talk for a while.

    It was an honor to have known Dennis. He was a very fine person.

    Perhaps these words may help a little at this time.

  13. Very sorry to hear that we have lost Dennis. Although we haven’t been in touch for a few years, we would often cross paths when we were both working downtown. We met in the same wing at the Athabasca Hall residence at the U of A, both starting out in engineering. He was always concerned about how difficult it was since being from Saskatchewan and very bright, he had never had to write a significant exam, he just got promoted. He didn’t have that easy sailing at U of A. Of course his concerns were all for naught as he breezed through Engineering as he did in the outside professional and business world. A great guy and I wish I had seen much more of him these past years. My very best wishes to the family, he went far too soon.
