Lloyd “Pete” Jensen, Jr. passed away February 14, 2021 from complications of a broken hip and dementia. Pete was born July 15, 1936 in Camden, NJ to Lloyd Sr and Vincie Jensen, both deceased. He attended Moorestown High School in NJ where he met Mary Bugno, his future bride. He was a Second
Lieutenant in the New Jersey National Guard for twelve years before moving his family to Chamblee, GA in 1966. He was employed by Kinney Vacuum Company for over twenty years, selling industrial vacuum pumps. In 1982, he started Jensen Engineering Sales Company, a regional industrial vacuum pump service company. He is survived by his wife, Mary (Bugno) Jensen of 65 years, 2 brothers, Bill (Butch) and his wife Debbie of Southampton, NJ and Ronnie and wife Lynn of Atco, NJ and two sisters, Susie Peters of Maple Shade, NJ and Marie Steck of Atco, NJ. He was preceded in death by his brother Jimmy and sister Janet (Duke) Carter.
Pete and Mary have five children – Patty & Terry Booth of Colbert, Joe & Joanne Jensen of Sugar Hill, Cristine Jensen & Ronnie Sullens of Loganville, Katie Moore of Monroe, and Connie & Richard Rodgers of
Loganville with twelve grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren and one great great-grandchild.
Pete enjoyed woodworking and had a special talent for building furniture from a picture. His family has many keepsakes that he has crafted through the years. Pete was a sports lover; he golfed and watched
any sport with a ball in it. He passed on the love of sports to all his children. He loved house boating and owned a boat on Lake Lanier for many years, where he built many lifelong friendships with his
boating family. He enjoyed traveling and cruising. Thinking about retirement, he and Mary built a second home in Cedar Key, FL which they enjoyed for many years. Pete was a friend to many, the life of any party, and he would tear up a dance floor whenever he had a chance.
Pete suffered from dementia for almost a decade and the family is grateful that he is at peace and no longer in pain.
