Olaf Bradly Jensen 1952 — 2014

Olaf Bradly Jensen

Born in Wadena, Saskatchewan on February 19th, 1952

A heart of gold stopped beating August 31st, 2014, as our beloved Bradly passed away at the age of 62, after his courageous battle with cancer. Left to carry on his legacy is the love of his life and wife of 37 years, Linda; The light of his life and 25 year old daughter, Kirsten; His mother, Maxine; His 2 brothers, Terry and Les; His 4 sisters, Adriann, Brenda, JoAnn and Barbie; His best friends, Glen and Brian; His “second daughter”, Aubrey; as well as the many other relatives, in-laws, friends and loved ones too numerous to mention. Brad was a well respected welder and mentor at Highland Valley Copper Mine, putting in over 30 years with his TECK family. His words of wisdom, unconditional love and thoughtful teachings will continue to live on despite his absence, for they will be carried in the hearts of many and shared for generations to come. The family wishes to extend their thanks to Dr. Bushra, Dr. Jones and the many staff at R.I.H., as well as their heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated and caring staff at Kamloops Hospice for all that you did to bring peace and comfort to Bradly during his last days. His spirit lives on as he now watches over us in the heavens with his Father, Olaf, and Son, Lewis, along with his many other loved ones who have left us here on earth.

A celebration of life for Brad’s friends and family will be held at the Calvary Community Church on Thursday, September 25th at 2pm. We ask that everyone who will be attending please dress in an attire that’s bright and cheery to represent the joyous demeanor of our cherished loved one.


In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association.


Gone yet not forgotten,

Although we apart,

Your spirit lives within us,

Forever in our hearts.

Thank-you for a life time of love.


Bye-bye for now.

    Dear Linda & Kirsten,

    We found out yesterday evening that Brad had passed away. We did not know he was sick. Kim & I are very saddened by this news. Brad was such a nice guy. We have always enjoyed his company and support. He was also a very special person to our Jody. Life is so very short. Please accept our heartfelt condolences to both of you. We are thinking of you at this difficult time. God bless Brad.

    Dave & Kim Brummund

    …sincerest condolences to Brad Jensen’s family and to all who knew him. One of his best friends was my Dad Brian. I would see Brad sometimes at work at the Pit Shop etc and we would say hi and chat for a moment sometimes. I’ll always remember the last chat we had just a little while ago, we ran into each other by door 11 in the Pit Shop and we had a really good chat, we talked about really good and important and meaningful type things, he truly was a good man, friendly and funny and caring. In the short time that I got to know him, he became my good friend too. Again, sincerest condolences to all. Rest in peace my friend, and we’ll see you on thee other side someday. Sincerely: Jason
