It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jeffrey George Hanson on November 26, 2012 at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 52 years.
Jeff was born in Ottawa, Ontario on January 11, 1960 to parents Wilma and Marshall Hanson. Left to mourn his passing are his father, Marshall Hanson of Quesnel, BC, 4 sisters: Laurie (Kelly) Anderson of Quesnel, Marsha (Ken) Holley of Powell River, BC, Sharon Beach and Deanna (Frank) Persco, both of Woodlawn, ON, and his brother Chris (Judith) Hanson of Prince Rupert, BC. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and most importantly, his constant companion, his beloved dog Sinbad. Jeff was predeceased by his mother Wilma in December of 1991.
Jeff, better known to his family as “Jughead” or “Jeddy”, will be lovingly remembered in the Elk Valley by many friends as ”The Gentle Giant”. His quiet demeanor and gentle ways will be missed by all who knew him. He loved the outdoors and spent long hours tinkering with his vehicles; but his one true passion in life was his dog Sinbad.
A private family service will be held at a later date. Messages of condolence may be made to the family at www.cherishedmemoriesfs.com Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
