OBITUARY

Michael V. Hansen

March 5, 1941October 9, 2020

Mike Hansen would like to let you know that his work here on Earth is done. Beginning on March 5th, 1941 and after 79 amazing years, he received a call in the late afternoon on Friday, October 9th, sort of an offer he couldn't refuse, for an appointment from which he sadly will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with his daughter Michel, his mother Mae, his father Fred, his brother Coop, his baby brother Flattop, his baby sister June, and other family and friends he has not seen in a long time. Job security is exactly 110 percent. His new mission takes him to a heavenly place where he will be socializing, playing cards, telling stories, and reading to his heart’s content. Music, laughter and love are GUARANTEED. Food is abundant and delicious, and you never gain an ounce! He left detailed instructions for his wife Susana, his daughter Susie E, his granddaughters Destiny and Heaven, and his grandsons Levi, Presley and Easton, to celebrate his mission here, and to know Papa Mike will be waiting patiently to be in each other's company again! Low adherence to these instructions at any time will not be tolerated! He hopes that his nieces Debbie and Charlene, can accept his inability to provide much notice, but their last conversations will not be the final ones. He is aware of several other openings where he's going, and therefore he suggests to any family or friends that remain to cash in on any vacation time and enjoy what you have with those you love.

We'd like to take this moment to let him know that he did a great job and wish him a safe journey. We will strive to remember his smile, his warmth, his generosity, and his love for family and friends. He worked hard all his life, up until the very end. In one way or another, he made a difference in the lives of many.

ARRANGEMENTS: Mike's desire was to be cremated without ceremony. His immediate family promised to honor his wishes. His daughter Susie will follow up with details for a late lunch at one of his favorite restaurants, where fond memories and funny stories will be appreciated.

Daddy... we did what you wanted. It broke whatever was left of my heart. I begged not to put you in, I'm sorry. The hardest thing I've had to do, but it's over now. I can't verbalize what I feel. I can't even sort it in my head. Just total sadness.

Papa Mike, I'm grateful to have made such a friend like you in my life. Your stories, your jokes, history quizzes, your wit -you were truly a great man. The love and support you've shown for your family was always amazing. I will remember the times when leaving I would say "Have a good one!" You'd quickly reply and ask "have a good one what?" It was only until I would say "Have a good DAY" -that you would smile and we would chuckle about it. I wish we had the opportunity to finally have our dinner or lunch outing like we've always planned, but in the end God's plans are always better. Rest easy Papa Mike, I will miss you.

My Uncle Mike was the best Uncle a niece could ever have. He always worried about Deb and me. He was like a father to us both. I remember that I couldn't wait for him to get home from work. I would always make sure he had everything he needed. Something to drink or anything like that. I would get my homework done and then I would be knocking on his door to be able go watch TV with him for awhile. Just to spend time with him. Also every FridayI couldn't wait for him to get home from work because it was going to the drive-in night. I also knew he was my protector from anything bad that might happen. I can also remember one Christmas that I wanted to get everyone some kind of present and My Uncle Mike gave me chores to earn some money that I could. After I left home I had a missing spot in my heart for a long time because I missed him so much. I didn't have enough time with him, especially after I found him again. It was like those years, we never missed. He was my Pop's. I know he loved that I called him that. You could hear it in his voice. My heart is hurting so, so bad right now. I don't know if I will ever really stop hurting from losing him, especially now that we had finally got back in touch. All I can say that his daughter were very lucky to have him as a father. I know that he loved them very much. He also loved his grandchildren. I can hear him now talking about Heavenly. He was very proud of her. Susie, his wife I only met a couple of times when I was a teenager. I really liked her but didn't get a chance to spend time with her. I finally found out that she was close to Deb's and My age. I hadn't realized how young she was when she married my Uncle. Susie, I hope one day we can make up on getting to know each other. I hope and pray to one day to get to see Pop's again. I only called him Pop's when it was just him and me. Now everyone will know. There's so much I want to say but it will have to wait. I love and miss you, My Uncle Pop's. His loving niece

I was so sad to hear of your passing. When I was young, I remember crawling onto your lap in Mae's grey rocker recliner and you'd sing Rockabye Baby to me until I fell asleep. You could be gruff at times, which is typical of all of us , but you loved your family and it showed. I hope you know that even though we rarely saw each other, I did love you and that you will be missed.

Mike, I'm going to miss you very much. When you called , you always said "What's Happening". I in turn would say, Not much, waiting for this pandemic to be over. You wanted to meet for lunch and I told you we would have to wait for things to get better. Sorry about that. I will always remember the times we did have together. You would take Charlene and I to the Drive-In movies in that White Dodge Charger, you liked the muscle cars. You would scare us when we were watching scary movies. You were always so good to us growing up. I will cherish our memories and times together. Just know your loved and missed by your niece Debbie.

Papa Mike, my heart is torn. You were a one of a kind, if there was anything that I liked about you, were your stories, just so amazing. I remember when you would ask my daughter questions about the Presidents, or a certain one, and you would tell the story, and we would just sit there and listen. Never a dull moment. You were a good father, husband and a wonderful grandfather, but unfortunately our Lord needed an Angel. It’s not goodbye, it’s we’ll see you soon. AMEN 🙏

My dear Papa Mike, it's been one week since I last got to see you, touch you, and try my best to comfort you one last time. This week has been a whirlwind. Everything I do.... I think of you. You taught me so much from how to drive, to how to be financially responsible. I'll miss all your silly stories that you would tell over and over again. What I would do to hear them just one more time. I love you Papa Mike... 💔

Uncle Mike, we loved spending time talking and listening to your stories. We will now have stories of our own, about when we would get together and talk with you. You have a special place in our hearts and will not forget you. We will miss you dearly. Andy, Dinorah, and Jazmine 🖤
