Ron Jensen was born February 8, 1935, to Elmer Ronald and Grace Phyllis Jensen in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Ron graduated with a BFA in Industrial Design from the University of Utah in 1959. Several months later on October 22, 1959, he married his sweetheart, Ann Hood. They were later sealed in the Portland LDS Temple in November of 2009.
Ron and Ann loved working together on projects around their home, playing music on the piano and electronic keyboard, watching sports, entertaining friends and family, traveling, choirs, symphonies and live plays. They loved serving in callings at various wards and at the Oregon Temple.
Ron served in the Utah and Oregon Air National Guard and was honorably discharged in November of 1976. Ron loved people and chose to work as a sales representative going from store sales to covering three states, selling to hospitals, clinics, and medical facilities. He was later offered a job in Oregon and was promoted to V.P. of Sales, covering all of the western states for Gaylord Industries, a commercial HVAC manufacturer of kitchen exhaust and heat reclaim systems.
He loved and enjoyed being with many wonderful friends and family members and dearly missed his wife and friends who had passed away earlier. He also loved his God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Ron is survived by his two sons, Mark (Janet) of Hillsboro, Oregon, and Jeffery (Susan), also of Hillsboro, Oregon; his brother, Paul Jensen of SLC; and grandson, Ryan Jensen. He was preceded in death by his wife, Ann; his parents, Elmer and Phyllis Jensen; sister, Glayde Watkins; and sister-in-law, Arlene Jensen.
