Alva Martin Jensen, born April 21, 1937, ended his pancreatic cancer battle on the 2nd of January, 2013. He passed away in the home he built with love, strength and hard work with loved ones by his side. Al was a self-made man with amazing wisdom and extraordinary experiences. He is loved and missed by his adoring wife of 54 years, Pat and his children, Sherri (Dean) and Ken (Wendy) along with seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren and his siblings Lorna (Ed) and Morley (Marion) and countless friends and family. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at Burquitlam Funeral Home (625 North Road, Coquitlam, BC). In lieu of flowers, donations would be greatly appreciated to pancreaticcancercanada.ca
Hopefully, wherever he is, there are toys to fix, gardens to tend, deliveries to make, sights to see and lots of tinkering to do.
