Soren Jr. JENSEN

Soren Jensen, Sr. passed away on December 10th, 2014 surrounded by his beloved family at the age of 73. He was the heart and centre of his family and will be incredibly missed. Soren was born in Port Alberni on September 29th, 1941 and spent most of his life in Abbotsford. He was the son of Henry and Donalda Jensen (nee Bishop) – deceased – who raised their four energetic and rambunctious sons on their farm. Soren’s greatest joy was his own family – his treasured wife Judy, his son Soren Jr. (Fiona) and daughter Brigit. He will be especially missed by his “special boy”, his grandson Henry. Also grieving his loss are his brothers Clarence, Les and Frank and their families, Judy’s mother Bertha and siblings Eleanor, Bruce, Gail, Sylvia, Monty, Gwen and their families and the “boys” Fraser and Oliver. Soren’s careers were varied – and in all of them he made friends and admirers. He also volunteered countless hours for many organizations including the Abbotsford Curling Club, Abbotsford Whalers Swim club, and Hole-in-the-Wall. Soren was a strong and guiding force for his family – always ready with a joke and a helping hand. If you were lucky enough to spend time with him you know desserts are never safe around eagles. The family would like to thank the first responders and staff at the Abbotsford Hospital, along with Dr. Keith and the nursing staff at the B.C. Cancer Agency in Abbotsford, who supported him in the last few months. A memorial service will be held at the Abbotsford Ramada, 36035 North Parallel Road on Monday, December 22nd at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Holmberg House Hospice.
