Benjamin Jensen, 92, of Green Bay, passed away on Tuesday, June 11, 2019. He was born on September 24, 1926, to the late Benjamin and Marie (Belott) Jensen, in Underhill, Wisconsin. He married Elma Dowden on June 29, 1946 in Louisiana; whom he met during World War II while proudly serving his country as a member of the United States Army.
Benjamin appreciated the outdoors and enjoyed the time he could spend fishing and hunting. He also loved watching baseball and football, especially the Green Bay Packers. Above all else, Benjamin adored God, his country, and his family; to all of whom he was deeply devoted.
Preceding Benjamin in death are his wife, Elma; brother, James Jensen; and sisters, Doris Flynn and Fern Umentum.
He survived by his son, Ralph Jensen (Margie); his sister, Lois Griffin; his grandchildren, Eric Jensen (Connie), and Brad Jensen (Jamie); his six great-grandchildren; as well as many nieces and nephews.
Benjamin’s family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to Unity Hospice and Marla Vista Gardens for the compassion and care he received.
