POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – A popular golf icon was remembered recently for his work ethic, his intelligence and his ability to “make everyone around him feel important,” according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Ron Jensen died Aug. 17 at Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital after years of battling several illnesses, according to the Journal, which reported that his impact on golf in the middle Hudson Valley is immeasurable. He was 74.

Jensen, a Queens native, was the longtime pro owner at the McCann Memorial Golf Course in Poughkeepsie, according to the Journal.

He is survived by three children — Ronald of Poughquag, Greg of Nanuet, and Christine Borrelli of Feeding Hills, Massachusetts, and their spouses. He is also survived by six grandchildren, according to the Journal.
