Wes

Wesley Dee Jensen, dear son, brother, uncle and friend, born April 21, 1961 to Gordon D. and Nancy Kay Jensen passed peacefully to his loving Heavenly Father on February 25, 2010 after suffering a sudden stroke. He was surrounded by his loving family. Wes spent his childhood in Sandy Utah where he rode mini-bikes, ran in fields and played in creeks; living out every boyhood dream. He attended Brighton High School where he made many life-long friends. Wes lived life to the fullest. He was an avid water skier and would jump at the chance to be on the lake with his family and friends. He loved working for his father's business and was proud to be Gordy and Nancy's son. He was happiest when he was driving the big rig, playing David Allan Coe music, and feeling the wind in his face. Wes loved riding his Harley with his dad, brothers and sister. There are many happy memories with him leading the way over East Canyon. His nephews and nieces will forever remember playing with their strong uncle. He was especially close to his mother Nancy and together they shared more than most mothers & sons do. He was a big hearted soul and was always there to defend a friend or an underdog.

He is survived by his loving family, parents, Gordon and Nancy Jensen; brothers and sister, Clint (Sally), Dale, Brenda (Tom) Skowyra and Zane. His love for his nieces and nephews Bridger, Annie, Aisha, Dillon, Tannon, Zach, Nathan, Daisha, Bailey, Anthony, Austin, and Mariah was evident when he was with them. They were his pride and joy. Preceded in death by his grandparents Alden and LaVerna Kay and Lawrence and Lorraine Jensen.

Graveside services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East 10600 South in Sandy. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Huntsman Cancer Institute. Long May You Ride.
