Raymond E. Jensen, Sr., 82, of Carmel, passed away January 8, 2020 in his home surrounded by loving family. He was born December 16, 1937 in Evansville, IN to the late Raymond and Ruth (Stokey) Jensen.
Ray received his degree in Engineering and worked as Administrator of Product Planning at RCA, before retiring after 37 years of service in 1998.
Ray enjoyed flying small engine planes and was only a few hours away from acquiring his license. Other interests included swimming and diving, as well as boating with his family.
