April 21, 1939 – April 20, 2017

On April 20, 2017, Dennis joined his wife Carol in heaven on what would have been their 54th wedding anniversary. Carol waited for just over three years for Dennis.

Dennis is survived by his children Arden Thompson, Lori (Brian) Van Den Biggelaar and Hayley (Mario) Thompson Bruised Head; grandchildren, Faith Thompson, Adrian, Shelby and Alanta Van Den Biggelaar and great-grandchildren Brodie and Sawyer Bruised Head. Dennis also leaves behind his brother David “Jeff” (Connie) Thompson and his niece and nephew Pamela Thompson and Howard (Kathy) Thompson, along with countless cousins and his uncle Jack Goin and aunt Miriam Wright.

Dennis was very much the patriarch of his family and will be missed deeply by all. Dennis served for over 25 years on the Calgary Police Service before retiring to Victoria for a few years. When Dennis and Carol moved back to Lethbridge, AB, Dennis took up working security at the U of L. He was always very involved in the International Police Association and made many friends worldwide with that organization. Dennis was a member of the McKillop United Church and was very active volunteering with the Interfaith Food Bank. Dennis was always active and giving to his family, friends and community and will be leaving a great void for many. We love you Papa.

A Service of Remembrance will be held at MCKILLOP UNITED CHURCH – 2329 15 Ave S, Lethbridge, AB on Wednesday, April 26th, 2017 at 3:00 P.M. with Reverend Trevor Potter officiating.

In lieu of flowers and in memory of Dennis, donations may be sent to either: McKillop United Church – 2329 15 Ave S, Lethbridge, AB T1K 0X5 or to the Interfaith Food Bank – 1103 3 Ave N, Lethbridge, AB T1H 0H7

MR. JERRY JENSEN, of Lethbridge, beloved husband of Mrs. Margaret Jensen, (nee Englehart) passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital from complications of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, awaiting a lung transplant on Friday, April 21st, 2017 at the age of 64 years.

Besides his loving wife of 20 years, Margaret, Jerry is survived by his children: Scott (Tammy) Jensen and their children Jayden, Tristin, Jordyn and Eric and Michelle (Kelly Peters) Jensen and their children Trinity and Gage, and step-children Jennifer Fritz and David Fritz. He will also be fondly remembered by his siblings Annette (Jake) Hendricks and Monte Jensen as well as Margaret’s mother Edith Andre and his first wife Rhea Elfring. Jerry was also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins, too numerous to mention.

Jerry was predeceased by his parents Marion and Louise Jensen, brother Ronald and sister-in-law Jean Jensen.

Jerry was a skilled Journeyman Carpenter, he also spent a great amount of time helping his father on the family farm just outside of Purple Springs. For the last 15 years of his career he was a Home Inspector with Castle Home Inspections, his own company, which he was very proud of.

Jerry was an excellent cook, and loved spending time in the kitchen coming up with his own recipes or even putting his own spin on recipes that he’d found elsewhere. He also enjoyed spending time in Mexico, going for long walks on the beach with his brother-in-law Jake. Jerry also had a keen interest in ancient Archeology.

Family was very important to Jerry, he was always there to support them or perhaps simply cook a meal.

In lieu of flowers and in memory of Jerry, take some time out in your day to fill out your Organ Donation Card.

A Celebration of Jerry’s Life will be announced when finalized.
