Gary Lynn Jensen, Sr., a dedicated member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was called to embark on a full-time mission to preach to God’s children in the spirit world on May 13th, 2024, at the age of 74. He was cherished as a husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Born on March 18th, 1950, in Emmett, Idaho, Gary led a life guided by principles of hard work, humor, faith, compassion, and devoted service to others. His mantra: “See a need fill a need.” He exemplified the teachings of Jesus Christ through his steadfast dedication to his family, community, and covenants with God.

Throughout his journey, Gary embraced every responsibility and fulfilled each duty with unwavering devotion. In 1969, he served as a missionary in the Brazil, Rio de Janeiro Mission, and continued to serve in various capacities within the Church, impacting the lives of countless individuals with his kindness, wisdom, and selflessness. He found fulfillment in sharing the gospel and uplifting those around him, irrespective of where they were in their spiritual journey.

Gary was preceded by his parents, Jacob Andrus Jensen and Alma Eileen LaPier, and his brother Don Leroy Jensen. He is survived by Jake Jensen, JJ Abernathy, Raun (Renee) Jensen, and Janeen (Steve) Krambule. Gary’s legacy of love and faith will be carried forward by his beloved wife, Marcia Rae Jensen, children Amber (Steven) Rosales, Ginger (Mark) Avitt, Gary (James) Jensen, Jr., Cameron (Jill) Jensen, and Summer Matthews, eighteen grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Though deeply missed by all who knew him, his memory will serve as a perpetual source of inspiration and guidance.
