Leonard Jensen was born October 21, 1954, in Wisconsin. On October 10, 2019, his shift was over, flying high and staying mean. Heaven bound Leonard, hammer down your shift is over. We all got it from here. He loved driving his semi, hunting, fishing and spending time with family and friends.
Leonard is preceded in death by his father, Ben Jensen; mother Lorraine Monnot, father (step-father) Eugene Monnot, Maternal and paternal Grandparents; Brother, Allen Lee Jensen, and Brother-in-law, Marvin NeSmith.
Leonard is survived by his sister, Margaret NeSmith (Steve Martin), Nieces Marcella NeSmith (Bobby Barnes Jr.), Laura Jensen (Glenn Boivin) and Elizabeth Jensen. Great-nieces, Tonya Sumner, Akasha Welch, Akira Welch, and Natayleah Boivin. He is also survived by a host of friends and family.
When Leonard was not driving his semi he was with his friends Bob and Jackie Stalker and family hunting or shooting guns in the backyard. He was also very close with Scott and Penny Ready and would shoot guns with them also. I know his work family at Kraze is gonna miss him as well. Your shift is over Leonard Jensen, you can rest now. Your family and friends have it from here. You will be loved and missed forever by everyone that has had the pleasure of meeting you.
