Paul Carl Jensen, 87, of Galveston passed away peacefully at his residence on March 7, 2018.  He was born on March 28, 1930, in Brooklyn, New York.  Paul graduated from Ball High School and became a Certified Property Manager after attending classes at the University of Houston, Clear Lake campus.  His life was his loving wife, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Paul enjoyed wade fishing in west bay along the sandbars with his good friend, John Ryder, or making fishing trips to Dauphin Island. At one point, he landed a 28″ Specked Trout. One of many stories he liked to share concerned his hole in one at the Galveston Municipal Golf course.

Past time favorites were teaching his children to play chess and later starting a chess club at an elementary school. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and Galveston Apartment Association.

Paul was predeceased by his wife of 61 years, Naida Merle Jensen, his parents, Rheinhardt Jensen, Margaret and Ed Guyon, and grandson, George Leo Lauzon, III.  He is survived by daughters, Jackie Barmore and husband Bill; Kathy Jensen; and Peggy Barmore and husband, Jim; sons, Duke Jensen and wife, Barb; Tom Jensen; Mike Jensen and wife, Antoinette; and John Jensen; grandchildren, Jason Skaer and wife, Kellye; Oscar Paul Skaer and wife, Maria Elena; Melissa Massaro and husband, Frank; Anthony and wife, Amanda; and Erin, Joseph, David, Connor, and Isabella Jensen; great-grandchildren, James and Jude Skaer; Clara Massaro; and Ava Jensen.

Paul’s wishes were to have a graveside service at Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Galveston with, his grandson, Jason Skaer, officiating. The service is scheduled for 1:00 pm on Monday, March 12 and will include a military presence. Following the service, there will be a gathering at the Broadwater Apartments’ entertainment facility, 6315 Central City Blvd, Galveston.

The family would like to express their appreciation to the caregivers for their kindness that made his final days peaceful.

In lieu of flowers, Paul’s request was that you please make a donation to the YMCA in Galveston in memory of George Lauzon, III or to the charity of your choice.

To the Jensen family, Prayers and sympathy on the passing of dad, I fondly called him 'The Silver Fox.' Great times back in high school days when the Jensen's, the Brouillard's and our family would gather at my parents home and we would laugh, eat, swim and laugh some more. Mr. Jensen always with a smile, a hug and his beautiful silver hair. May he rest in peace. Hugs to you all.

My deepest condolences to Mr. Jensen's family. I remember working with Mr. Jensen at The Flagship Hotel. He was a super nice and kind man.

Sorry to hear of Mr. Jensen's passing. He was a great human being and father. Since I had not seen him for so long, it was great seeing and talking to him at Oscar and Ria Skaer's wedding last October in Freeburg, IL. Though I know he was hurting then, it just goes to show what type of person he was. Traveling that distance from Galveston to St. Louis was not easy for him, to say the least, but he was there at that wedding, smiling, joking, and full of life. May he rest in peace (and I am sure he's already found Nada in heaven.) Both will be missed.

To the Jensen Family, I remember your father well from the days we worked together at the Flagship Hotel. He was a fine man and I always regarded him as a "cool guy." Very sorry to hear of his passing and your loss. May he rest in peace. My prayers are with him and you all. Joe Tabaracci Bastrop, TX

I am so sorry for your loss, and I know he will be missed by all. I recently lost my Godfather, Herbie Parsons. He was a longtime friend of your Dad. He told me many stories of your Dad, my Dad, Gene Werner, and your Parents, living the life on Galveston East Beach! They were a pack that skated together, fished the Gulf, and roamed the streets of their neiborhood. Some of his stories included your Mom. And, according to Herbie, my Dad was very protective of Naida! He said your Dad was warned that if he didn’t treat her right, he would have to answer to him! I guess your Dad met with his approval! He thought a lot of both of your parents. I guess the gang is now rejoined..,sharing stories of their lives, family and memories of Galveston East Beach!
