Marlborough – Lee Kendall Jensen, 71, of Marlborough died suddenly on Saturday, January 18, 2020 in Marlborough. He was the son of the late Holger and Grace (Colson) Jensen and the husband of Diane L. (Jones) Jensen to whom he was married for 36 years.
Lee grew up in Lincoln and attended Lincoln-Sudbury H.S. then earned his Bachelor’s Degree at Bentley College. He owned and operated a printing business in Saxonville, MA for 38 years.
Lee had a love and passion for dogs and rarely was without one through the years. He loved music, especially the Beatles, all sports, and especially the Boston Red Sox. He got to combine these two loves last June when he went to London for the Red Sox-Yankee game and walked across Abbey Road with his best friend, Bob Davis.
He will always be remembered for his quick wit, infectious laugh, and his kind and compassionate spirit. He and his wife, Diane, loved to travel with their dearest friends, Bob and Susan Davis, and enjoyed many trips to Italy, California wine country, and many of the Caribbean islands through the years.
