May 21, 1925—Dec. 14, 2013
Alfred "A" Andrew Tenneson, 88, of Fairfield Glade, passed away on Dec. 14, 2013, after battling cancer. A memorial service will be held Thursday, Dec. 19, at 2 p.m. at Christ Lutheran Church of Fairfield Glade.
He is survived by wife, Beverly; children, Barbara (Roger) Grivno, Debra (Robert) Carlson, Alfred (Doris) Tenneson Jr., Gary (Diane) Tenneson; eight grandchildren; and ten great grandchildren.
He was born on May 21, 1925, to Julia Emily (Huseby) and Alfred Andrew Tenneson in Mayville, ND. Al and his siblings, Larry, Marian, Adrianne, Helen, Lloyd, Roy, Emory, Dolly and Donald, were raised in Moorhead, MN.
Al married the love of his life, Beverly (Bev) Ann Michelson, Nov. 24, 1949, and together they raised their four children. Al was a great husband and father, he knew hard work and long hours were needed to provide for a family and he was a man who took his responsibilities seriously. Al loved to laugh and have fun, he teased the grandchildren relentlessly.
Al was a World War II Navy veteran and, after the war, he attended Interstate Business College in Fargo for two years and then began his career as a medical administrator for the Veterans Administration until retirement in 1980. Al's job provided the opportunity to move around the country. Throughout the years, Al and Bev established homes in Moorhead, MN, Dilworth, MN, Miami, FL, Iron Mountain, MI, Portland, OR, Tomah, WI, St. Cloud, MN, Perham, MN, Detroit Lakes, MN, Niceville, FL, and Crossville. But the family always returned to "the lake" near Perham, MN, up until 2011.
Al and Bev chose two verses for their wedding; Genesis 2:18 provided him his greatest friend, Bev, and Acts 16:31 passage gave him full assurance of his awaiting Savior.
Al Tenneson cherished and demonstrated his love for his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His personal love and devotion to his wife was an inspiration for all of us.
The family of Al Tenneson are extremely appreciative of the tender care he received from Life Care Center of Crossville, and Cumberland House Hospice as they lovingly escorted him into the arms of Jesus. This local hospice facility is one of the best in the country.
Crossville Memorial Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc. was in charge of the arrangements.

Science says the earth is about 4.5 billion years old. We can’t easily comprehend that many years, or exactly how the early earth was formed into a stony ball of space debris. Surface water may have arrived on Earth in icy comets.
