Obituary of Mark E. Jensen Sr.
Pavilion ~ Mark E. “G-Pa” Jensen Sr., 77, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family on March 6, 2020. Mark retired from Batavia Turf in 2018, after a lifelong career in the agricultural business. He loved spending time with his family and friends at Lei Ti Campground, watching the sunrise while catching crappie in Moore Haven, Florida and making sure that everyone around him had a smile on their face and a full stomach. His kind spirit, loving nature, willingness to help others and infectious laugh will be greatly missed by all. He is survived by his beloved wife of 60 years, Diane Jensen of Pavilion; his three daughters and son, Darlene (Jack) Phillips of Wyoming, Kelly (Dan) Krywcun of Spring, Texas, Monica (Jerry) Kingsley of Pavilion and Mark (Julie) Jensen Jr. of Batavia; his twelve granddaughters (and five grandsons) and four great-granddaughters. Services will be private at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the American Cancer Society.
