Kerry Willard JensenDecember 1, 1939 ~ January 28, 2017 (age 77)
Kerry Willard Jensen, 77 Cedar City UT, passed from this mortal existence on January 28th 2017. Kerry was born on December 1st 1939 to Archibald Willard and Relva Lydia Spendlove Jensen. He was the second of five children. Brother ; (stillborn) Sisters; Linda (Loyd Jessop), Lorrilee (Butch) Talbot and Merrilee (Don) Adams.
Kerry grew up in Salt Lake City and Hurricane UT. He married Kathleen Bulloch on June 4th 1960 in The Old Rock Church in Cedar City, UT. Their marriage was later solemnized in the St. George Temple. They had 3 children: Randy K, Robert Troy (Vickie) and Bradley Scott (Holly) Jensen.
At the age of 20 Dad enlisted in the Navy where he served honorably for 4 years. While in the service he was able to see such places as Hong Kong, China, Japan, Hawaii, and the Panama Canal during the conflict.
Dad and Mom eventually settled in Washington, UT where they raised their family. Dad was an extremely hard worker sometimes working two jobs to support his family. He instilled the pride of hard work into his 3 sons. Dad taught us boys a love of the outdoors through numerous hunting, camping, and fishing trips, for which we will be eternally grateful. Dad loved his Grandchildren, and Great Grandchildren more than we can express. Dad had a great sense of humor, and was always quick with a joke. I sure hope Mash is playing in Heaven, if not he is going to be disappointed!
Kerry is preceded in death by his parents, infant brother, sister Merrilee, son Robert and many extended family members.
Dad will be laid to rest on Cedar Mountain at The Bulloch Family Ranch at a later date with graveside services.
Words can never express the gratitude our family feels toward Dad's Hospice Nurse Colleen and Aide, Katrin for the loving care and compassion afforded him, through them. The world is a better place because of them.
The family also wishes to convey thanks to the staff at Bella Terra for the kindness that they extended to Dad during his stay.
Dad, until we meet again, we love and miss you, but are so grateful that you are in a better place. Give Robert a big hug from all of us.
