Sy moved back to Albert Lea. He tried staying active and spent time with family and friends but his declining health, due to heart disease, kept him from doing the things he wanted to do.

Sy is survived by daughters, Amber and Shelby; grandchildren, Makenzie and Dakota (all of Virginia); mother, Kay Jensen; brother, Allen Jensen; sisters, Angela Camerer and Teresa Jensen; aunt, Patty Armell (all of Albert Lea); and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Sy is preceded in death by his father, Alton Jensen; brother, Michael Jensen; grandparents, Walter and Anna Jensen and Kenneth and Eunice Armell; and several aunts and uncles.

Sy has left us but the love and memories will be with us always.
