  1. To the Jensen Family:
    Alf was one of the best men and dads I have ever known. He set such an example of what a family man is all about, and I have such fond memories of his laughter, stories and bad jokes. He made me feel like part of the family starting back in elementary school with Mandy and it continued on into my adulthood. I will surely miss him and remember him always as the loving man that he was.

    Dear Family, Alf accpeted me unconditionally and loved me as one of his own…what wonderful gifts he gave! I will always be grateful for his kindness, his understanding, his advise, as well as his laughter and his love. I will always appreciate the many memories I have of Alf and the Jensen family. I know I was not the only recipient of Alf’s good will, light heart and charm. He unselfishly extended himself to others. He will be dearly missed and forever remembered.

    Alf Jensen:

    To a former military service member, Danish citizen, Nova Scotia as well as a dedicated and loyal father, brother, husband, uncle, son (son-in-law), cousin, friend. He served both his birth nation and Canada with distinction, gave so much to his family and friends and was an amazing and wonderful human being. Alf married a gifted lady, Mary, who is equally incredible, and they raised five exceptional children.

    It was a great honour to know Alf and call him a friend. He enriched all our lives and we are all the better for having him in each of our lives.

    The Detheridge Family
