William Brent (Bill) Jensen passed away peacefully surrounded by family on May 15, 2020. He was born April 26, 1946 to Wilson Boyd (Bud) and Dorothy Jensen. He was raised and lived in Brigham City his entire life. The fourth of five children, Billy helped in the family grocery store adjacent to their home.
Following graduation from Box Elder High School in 1964, he started working at Hill Air Force Base. Most of his career was spent with Thiokol as a programmer and then systems analyst. He retired in 2005.
He married Vicki Cochran on November 15, 1968 in Brigham City. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Ogden temple. They were blessed with three children: Andria, Brett & Monica.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He loved his time serving in the Brigham City temple until he had to give it up for medical reasons.
Bill was always active. He loved golf, tennis and pickleball. He also enjoyed walking, playing games with family, fishing and camping. We will miss his smile, his laugh and his warm presence.
We would like to thank his loving hospice workers from Integrity - Jody, Alexis, Eric & Jen, who went above and beyond, and all those that have shown love and support to the family during this time.
Bill is survived by his wife Vicki of 52 years, daughters Andria (Clenneth) Berry and Monica (Eric) Bottelberghe, daughter-in-law Joanna Jensen, 11 grandchildren and 1 great grand-daughter. He is also survived by two sisters Kaylene (Jerry) Nelson and Shaunna Sandersfeld.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Lynn and Phil and his son Brett.
A private family graveside service was held at the Brigham City Cemetery on Monday, May 18th.
In Bill's honor please spend precious time with loved ones or enjoy a game of pickleball. Send condolences to www.gfc-utah.cim
Vickie, we were so saddened to hear of the passing of your husband. You and he always had happy faces on when we saw you working at the temple, and you both did you work thee with the Spirit of the Lord. We are so thankful for the times that you or he sat in and helped us. We pray that you will feel of that same Spirit always but especially as you go through this hard time. You are a great person and am glad that we know you. Gae and Bruce
Vicki and family, the video is just wonderful, makes me fall in love with your whole family, brings smiles and tears at the same time. Our hearts are heavy for your all right now, but I know the Lord will bless you and ease the pain as time goes on. Love and prayers to you, pretty lady and your family. Karen and Lyle
An absolutely beautiful tribute for an absolutely beautiful person. My love to Vicki, Andria, Monica and your families. I feel very blessed to have been fortunate enough to have known such a beautiful soul and am thankful for the guidance and mentorship throughout my life by both Billy & Vicki. RIP Willy, you will be missed but never forgotten.
Oh My Gosh!! I just watched the tribute, music and pictures. Brought back memories and made me cry. He was so funny when we were growing up. He put up with us, me as one of Shaunna's friends. I've known their family since the 8th grade and always felt like I was part of it. Saw Bill and Vicki through the years. What an incredible couple. So supportive and each other and so family oriented. Was priviledged to be with Bill and few times in the last few months when Shaunna was staying with them. When we talked about crazy and fun things we had done over the years, he always laughed. Up to the end, he loved his family and was still so happy. Will miss him. Love to all of you Brenda and Frank Jensen
So sorry for your loss. One of the things I have missed most since moving 5 years ago is playing Pickleball in the mornings with bill. He was an awesome tournament partner and friend. His passing leaves a big hole and he will be greatly missed. Sending love love Vicky and family.
One of my favorite memories with Bill. We won a bronze medal at the Pickleball tournament.
I will never be able to express how much I will miss Billy. As the older sister I spent a lot of time my time as a nanny. He knew how to get whatever he wanted with that sweet way he had about him.
As he grew up ,he had a lot of charm to go with good looks. everybody loved Billy and he will be terribly missed.
So sorry for your loss if your loss Vicky. I have a lot of fun memories of him. He will be missed by all I am sure. Giving you a hug. I hope you remember me. Tracy Nelson.
Bill was one of our best friends. We did many things together playing card, taking road trips, camping and many more memories. My prayers go out to Vickie and the girls. Love Jean

Vicky and kids I am so sorry for your loss of Bill. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Remember it’s just see ya later, he’s preparing the way for the rest of you. Love you Rod & Cheryl Thompson ( Margie’s daughter)
Bill loved his family and his faith. I will be forever grateful to Vicki for the care and love she gave him right up to the end of his life. I have precious memories of mischief and fun with my brother who was always there for me. Just looking at his smile and into his eyes made life seem calm and fun. His whistle, laughter, puzzled looks and unexpected comments will be memories I keep. Most of all the kindness and love he freely gave and his devotion to his family was priceless. He was a gift to all those fortunate enough to share his life. Life's challenges will not be the same without him, he truly was always a soft place to fall. Shaunna
