He was born in Columbia on July 23, 1928 to Ben and Liza Hansen. He was the second of seven children. He married his sweetheart Henrietta Hansen on Jan. 3, 1953.
He served in the Korean War during 1950-1952. He was very patriotic and honored his country. He loved his family and was always interested in knowing what was going on in their lives. He was a good father, grandfather, and great grandfather, and we will all miss his many stories and his gift of gab. Dad was a farmer and rancher for most of his life. He also worked in several of the coal mines and for the Emery County Road Department.
