HANSEN, Christian O.

September 10th, 1938 – March 15th, 2008

Chris passed away peacefully at Hospice House in Vernon with his wife and best friend, Bunty, at his side. A member of the Law Society of B.C. for more than forty years, Chris was a learned advocate for many people in Northern B.C. He had a love of travel that took him around the world and to Mexico on many occasions. Chris also enjoyed the outdoors and was a devoted fisherman; always trying to find the perfect fishing hole. He was also known for his wry sense of humor and quick wit; he loved to entertain family and friends with his poems. Chris will be cherished and greatly missed by many family and friends, including his children, Michael (Thoren), Jennifer (Dean), Catherine (Dennis), Janice (Bob), Chris (Kelli), Gaylene (Joe), Brent (Berrylynn), Nolan (Rita), Allan (Deanna), fifteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, as well as his two brothers, Lars (Lil) and Siren (Judy) along with nieces and nephews. A Remembrance Tea will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 29th, 2008 in the Tea Room of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, those friends wishing to make memorial contributions in memory of Chris may do so to Vernon & District Hospice Society, Children’s Hospital or Special Olympics.
