Dennis Martin Jensen, age 83, passed away in his home July 2, 2022.  God took him home after fighting a battle with Mesothelioma for three and a half years.

Dennis was born November 3, 1938 at his parent’s home in the village of Geneva.  He was the youngest of five children.

On April 23, 1960 he married his sweetheart and forever dance partner Judith K. Anderson.  They were married for 54 years and had three children – Daniel, Timothy and Julie.

He loved dancing, bowling, fast pitch softball, fishing, hunting, golfing and going up north to the cabin.  All of these he enjoyed with his family and friends.  He will live on in the better parts of everyone that knew him.
