John Thurston Hanson

We regret to announce the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on April 16, 2010, of John T. Hanson, at the age of 66 years.

John was a resident of the area since 1969, teaching in Lumby and then at Vernon Senior Secondary for many years. He was an active and enthusiastic member of Trinity United Church, where he volunteered in many capacities.

John was predeceased by his wife, Gloria, in 2002. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by children: Dominique (Troy) Reitsma, Dylan Hanson, and Steve (Annette) Smith; five grandchildren and a number of nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

Cremation will be followed by a Celebration of Life Service, which will be held at Trinity United Church on Friday, April 23, at 2:00 p.m., with the Reverend Bob Thompson officiating.

In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of John to the Memorial Fund of Trinity United Church.
