the age of 87, Robert D. Jensen (Bob) passed away in Cedar
Hills, Utah. He was born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho,

Bob was an entrepreneur who had several successful careers,
most notably as a building contractor and an insurance broker.
He also proudly served his country in the United States

family time, and A&W root beer.
Beloved by family and friends alike, Bob was a warm and
loving man who was our patriarch and example. He bravely
battled Parkinson's disease during the last 25 years of
his life, but is now strong and free of pain, and reunited
in heaven with his own parents and siblings, and one great-grandchild.
