Jim Hansen passed away on Thursday, October 6, 2016, at the age of 78. He was surrounded by his loving family. Jim was born on April 27, 1938, in Dell Rapids, SD, to Magnus and Martha Hansen. He was the oldest of six children. Jim served honorably in the United States Air Force and the Air National Guard from 1956 to 1994. If you had the pleasure of knowing this great man, you know all of his amazing qualities. Jim was a patient, loving and devoted man of God. He was a hard working, old fashioned gentleman who still opened the car door for his wife, even after 57 years of marriage. The unconditional love and support he had for his family is what makes him a role model to all he leaves behind. Jim was preceded in death by his parents; and his son, Michael Anthony Hansen. Jim is survived by his wife Sharon; their children, Julie Schrey and husband Randy, Karin Harrell and husband David, Chris Hansen and wife Marti, Tim Hansen and wife Erin, Beth Matthews and husband Jim, Kevin Hansen and wife Ana Cabezas, Katie Hansen and fiance Alex Villanueva; and daughter-in-law, Tracy Hansen. He also leaves behind 16 grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren, whom he treasured. The family is planning a Celebration of Life to be held on Sunday, October 30, 2016.
