Carl Gunnar Rorbeck Jensen

1921-2006

With sorrow the family of Carl Jensen, late of Chilliwack, announce his death on August 9, 2006. Predeceased by his brothers Martin and Wesley, he is survived by his loving wife Aulda, whom he married in 1946, his four sons, Gerry (Beverly), Greg, Steve, and Bill (Barb) and his four grandchildren, Kari and Sarah, Paul and Julia all of Maple Ridge and Mission. He is also survived by his sister, Oline Smith of Penticton and his brother, Elmer (Doreen) of Chilliwack, his two sisters in law, Betty Jensen and Joan Jensen, many nieces and nephews and extended family in Saskatchewan, U.S.A. and Denmark.

Carl was born in Saltum Denmark on July 27, 1921 and came to Canada with his family in 1924. Though always a proud Canadian – he served overseas in WWII with the RCNVR- he never forgot his Danish heritage, language or traditions.

Carl loved people and always found a way to communicate, no matter what language barriers. We will always remember his wonderful sense of humour and love of the outdoors. He was a story -teller extraordinaire and will be deeply missed. A special thank you to the Chilliwack Home Care Nursing and Support Services. A memorial tea will be held in the Club House, Promontory Lake Estates, 6001 Promontory Rd, Chilliwack BC on Sunday, August 13, 2006, 1-4 pm. If any so desire in lieu of flowers, donations to the B.C. Cancer Fund would be appreciated.
