Aksel Carl Jensen III, age 78, of Shelbyville, Tennessee died Saturday, December 4, 2021.

Aksel was born December 24 to Aksel Jr. (Copenhagen, Denmark) and Margaret (Mansfield, Ohio) in 1942 in Sandusky, Ohio, before moving to Shelbyville at age 10 where he remained the rest of his life, graduating from Shelbyville Central High School in 1961.

Aksel was preceded in death by his parents, and sisters, Janet and Margaret (Peggy). He is survived by his brothers Jon and Richard (Dick).

He loved hunting, fishing, gun collecting, and cheering on Shelbyville and Tennessee football. He loved his church and community. Most of all, he loved his family. He supported his children throughout their lives, following them to every Cub Ccout meeting, football game, dance recital, and swim meet.
