Danny Lester Jenson
1949 ~ 2013
Danny Lester Jenson, 63, passed away peacefully February 28, 2013 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona surrounded by his loving family. He was born July 27, 1949 in Salt Lake City, Utah to George Lester and Carma Shelton Jenson. He married Lynda Swift on December 12, 1967 in Salt Lake City.
Dan was a passionate man who enjoyed life very much. Although he delved into many different interests (cooking, motorcycles, horses, golf, photography, knives, airplanes, and fishing) his greatest love was the desert and his guns. Dan was a great teacher and his knowledge will be passed on for generations to come.
Dan was a proud Vietnam-era veteran of the United States Air Force. For decades, he brought his family together every weekend for Sunday dinners. We'll all miss Dad's creative cooking. Everyone has their favorites… and some have very funny stories to go along with them.
Survived by his wife, Lynda; mother, Carma Jenson; sons, Chris (Angie), Shane (Brenda); daughters, Marci (Clint) Melendez, and Amanda (Tyler) Black; 13 grandchildren; brothers and sisters, Ed (Jewelyn) Jenson, Lesly (Gundar) Wastlund, Dave (Terese) Jenson, and Julie (Kevin) Yates. Preceded in death by his father, Les Jenson; and brother, Lester Jenson.
Funeral services will be held Monday, March 11, at 11 a.m. at Goff Mortuary, 8090 So. State, where there will be viewings Sunday 6-8 p.m. and Monday one hour prior to services. Interment, Utah Veterans Memorial Park.www.goffmortuary.com
