Obituary – Hansen, Ronald Fredrick

Passed: May 29, 2015
Long time resident of Slave Lake, Ronald Frederick Hansen, passed away at the age of 69. He will be greatly missed not only by his family, but many people in our community. Ron moved from Genesee to Slave Lake for a two week job in 1965, but must’ve enjoyed his time here as he ended up spending 50 years here! Ron was active in the community starting with stock car racing in the early years, participating in hockey, and being a minor hockey coach for many years. Aside from being a plumber/ business owner, Ron was an Elks member and volunteered on the Slave Lake Cemetery committee. Ron spent most of his life dedicated to his family, but also had interests in classic cars, professional hockey and movies. He was often seen barbequing steaks during Elks events, and spent his days working, cruising town, and being out for his usual coffees. His sarcastic personality, boisterous laugh and big smile will not easily be forgotten, and will be greatly missed by the people who knew him and loved him. Ron leaves behind a loving family who will miss him greatly. Children: Carole (Greg), Don (Stacey), Kyle (Camille), Kris, Jennifer (Frazer), and nine grandchildren: David, Alyssa, Dylan, Colten, Cassidy, Avery, Luca, Finn, Heathe. He also leaves behind siblings: John, Philip, Cara-May, and their families. Ron is predeceased by his wife Peggy (1997), father Eijler (1974), mother Muriel (2000), brother Dennis (1957), and brother Paul (2010). The memorial for Ron took place June 8th, 2015 at the Gathering Place in Slave Lake, Alberta. The family wishes to express deep gratitude for the many people who attended his service, and for all the kind words and actions spoken to them.
