HANSEN, Robert Peter (Bob)

July 5, 1933 – Dec 23, 2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing with his family by his side of Bob Hansen at Langley Memorial Hospital. Bob was born in Vancouver B.C., then at an early age moved to Langley. When he married Bob spent the rest of his life in the Cloverdale area raising his family.

He is survived by his loving wife Jean who he was married to for 56 years. Beloved father of Robert (Barbara) and Wendy. Dearly loved grandpa of Tina (James), Jennifer (Matt), Derek (Nickie) and Sarah. Great Grandpa of Kayden Jean. Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa embraced his family with love and was always there for them.

Bob enjoyed the great outdoors by hunting camping and spending many hours fishing or on his boat. Bob’s life began as a mechanic for many years, also he did carpentry and with this skill built many homes. Bob was a volunteer for the Cloverdale Hall 8 Fire Department, then joining the Surrey Fire Department and retiring as a assistant Fire Chief.

There will be a gathering of the family & friends at a later date.

Donations can be made in Bob Hansen honor to the Vancouver Burn Unit or the Alzheimer’s Society.
