Modulist ImageAdrian was born on October 2, 1939 to Merrills and Lily Jensen at the Naeve Hospital in Albert Lea. He had 3 brothers and 2 sisters, including his twin brother Allan. After graduating from Albert Lea High School, he was drafted into the Army. He was stationed in Anchorage, Alaska for 2 years. After his discharge from the Army, he went to work at Wilsons as a truck loader in the loading dock. When he wasn’t working, he also was farming and would always be available to help other farmers as well.

He enjoyed collecting Farmall and John Deere Tractors and fishing. He had a great memory, as he would always remember your name, and the past. He enjoyed going out to new places, but you could count on him being at McDonalds at 6am for coffee with his friends. Overall, he was a humble man, who always made do with what he had.

Adrian is survived in death by his sisters Joyce Halvorson and Janice Morreim; brother Dennis (Mary) Jensen; sister-in-law Millie Jensen; along with 12 nephews and nieces.
