W.F. "Dub"'s Story
W.F. "Dub" Jensen, age 73 of Noble, passed away Tuesday, February 21, 2017, at the Oklahoma Veterans Center in Norman. W.F. Jackson Jensen was born September 16, 1943 in Wallville, Oklahoma, 1 of 6 children born to George Jackson Jensen and Darlis Lillian (Brown) Jensen. He was raised in the Hughes Community and attended Hughes schools, graduating High School in 1961. After school, Dub answered the call for his country, and joined the United States Air Force. He married Phyllis Ann Weatherford on March 7, 1965 at the Hughes Baptist Church. Together they raised 3 children, son, Monte and daughters, Samantha and Trinity. His love for country led him into a distinguished career spanning more than 21 years in the Air Force. He was a proud patriot and served his country honorably, retiring as MSGT in 1983. Dub later worked at the Joseph Harp Correctional Facility east of Lexington. On August 4, 2001, Dub married Linda Kay Tennison and they made their home in Noble. In his younger years, Dub liked to coon hunt, and he fondly recalled of his many adventures hunting. He was an avid reader, and enjoyed traveling, and visited all but Rhode Island and North Dakota of the 50 states. He enjoyed history and made a point of visiting monuments and museums while on his many trips. He enjoyed art and painting, and made canes for those who might need one. His love of country and his service, inspired his son, and many of his grandsons to follow in his footsteps and serve their country. But his greatest influence and gift to his family would be his love for God. Dub was a man of great faith and encouraged his family daily to serve the Lord. He will be greatly missed!
