Otto Lee Hensen

March 24, 1958 — November 19, 2023


Otto Lee Hensen, 65, of Twin Falls, Idaho, was called to eternal rest on November 19, 2023, in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He was born March 24, 1958, in American Falls, Idaho, to Otto James Hensen and Emma Vanetta Gee Hensen.

Otto was a dedicated truck driver who spent 38 years traversing the highways of 48 states. Beyond his career achievements, Otto took immense pride in his personal life. He adored spending time with his beloved wife Linda Gene Malley. Their love story began October 20, 1982 and they were married February 12, 2004.

Otto's family meant the world to him, and he created lasting memories with each generation. He was a devoted father figure to Lucky (Trish) Rogers, Angel Flich, John (Vesta) Rogers, Nichole (Robert) McClure, Delbert (Alberta) Prince, Bert (Shannon) Rogers, Levi (Heather) Prince, and Emma (Yvonne) Hensen-Runnels.

As a doting grandfather to 34 grandchildren and great-grandfather to 13 great-grandchildren, Otto had mastered the art of creating moments filled with laughter and love. Camping together and sharing stories around a crackling campfire are cherished moments that will forever hold a special place in the hearts of Otto's loved ones.

Otto was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Larry.

Memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm, Tuesday, November 27, 2023, at Farnsworth Mortuary, 1343 S. Lincoln, Jerome, Idaho.
