Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Ronald Robert Hansen died peacefully in his sleep on November 26th, 2023 at Grand Villa Assisted Care in Grand Junction Colorado at the age of 86 . He is survived by his wife Arlene of 64 years of marriage and three children. Robert, Betty and Frank along with nine grand grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren. Born in Brooklyn New York his Father (Hans) and mother (Winifred) moved to Burr Ridge Illinois where they built a home to raise their family. As an avid sports fan his favorites were baseball, bowling, drag racing and table tennis which he all excelled in. Ron worked for Jays Foods in Chicago for thirty-six years. Then in retirement he liked working at Funway part time along with volunteering at a local food bank when in Montrose Colorado. Ron and Arlene’s dream of retiring to Colorado came in 1998 when they left Illinois to start a new adventure in their life. Since then, they enjoyed square dancing, golf, seniors’ softball (the best third baseman ever!) while also making many new friends while members of the Elks Lodge in Montrose. They also enjoyed every visit from their children over the years, even snowmobiling!
Dad never said much, being a passive man, to us kids. You could tell he wanted to say more but instead always expressed how proud he is of his children to many others. This past thanksgiving he was asked, “what are you thankful for Ron” his response -MY FAMILY- that says it all.
Crippin Funeral Home of Montrose is assisting the family. (970) 249-2121
