QUENTIN EUGENE JENSEN, 72, of Pittsburg, Kansas died February 8, 1992 at the St. Francis Regional Medical Center in Wichita.

To a stranger's eyes he was just an average man, courteous and rather quiet. But, in my heart, and the hearts of two little boys who called him 'Grandpa Mac' and the hearts of all who knew him, he was a giant! He was always there with a helping hand when someone was in need, and fun-loving with his friends when work was finished. To him, a good show display meant keeping those engines running, explaining their operation and the way they were used in the days when agriculture and industry depended upon them. He was there for the kids, too, with his corn sheller and grinders, letting them do the actual operation.

He was born December 12,1919, in West Jordan, Utah, to George M. and Edna Bringhurst Jensen, and attended schools in Utah. Jensen was a veteran of World War II, serving in the Army Signal Corps on radar installation in Iceland until his discharge in 1945. He was employed as a switchman for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company from 1945 until he retired in 1981. He married Lorene Wallace in 1944 and she preceded him in death in 1981.
