Bruce A. Jensen Jr., 64, of Brockton, died from a heart attack on Sept. 19, 2020. He was born in Chelsea Massachusetts in July of 1956, and died in Brockton, where he lived most of his life. After graduating from Brockton High School, (where he excelled in a number of sports, including wrestling and pole-vaulting), he served in the U.S. Marine Corps. Bruce, nicknamed “Chipper”, or, “Moose”, was a proud Swede, a third-generation bricklayer (Local 3), and the owner/founder of “One Brick at a Time”. He was immensely proud of his masonry work, of which there are many examples spanning from Florida to New England. His work can easily be identified by his signature, “coin stuck in the cement” gag, that will likely outlast us all. Bruce lived his life to the fullest, never doing anything "half-assed", and we take solace that he can rest in peace, no longer having to deal with all of the “fruitcakes” that plagued him. Bruce enjoyed fishing, kayaking and watching baseball (Go Sox!). Bruce was a devoted son and is survived by his mother, Claire (Loving) Jensen, and father Bruce A. Jensen Sr.; a loving husband to Patricia (Kelley) Jensen; adoring father to Chelsea Jensen and Victoria Jensen, Grandpa to Delilah Schneider, a beloved brother to Debbie Jensen, Christopher Jensen (and Kimberly), Wendy Mitchell (and Douglas), and Erik Jensen; and uncle to many nieces and nephews. Bruce didn’t do anything half assed, and lived his life to the fullest, a favorite quote was, “Falling feels like flying, for a little while”. All are welcome to calling hours Sunday (Sept. 27) 1-3 p.m. in Waitt Funeral Home, 850 North Main St. Brockton, his funeral service at 3 p.m. in Waitt Funeral Home and burial on Monday. Memorial contributions may be made to his youngest daughter, Victoria, via GoFundMe.com Per Covid-19 protocol, masks and social distancing required.
