On March 22, 1952, a bright, shining light was born in Kalispell, MT. On November 20th 2017, that amazing light went out and the world is far dimmer. It's an easy phrase to say that someone "walked in love", but Lindal "Lin" Joseph Hansen truly did. He never met someone who did not become family within 10 minutes.

We are truly thankful his love shined the brightest on those nearest to him: his adoring, devoted wife, Joyce Hansen; his four sons who strive daily to follow in his footsteps and emulate his example, and the women blessed to marry them: Todd and Desiree with their 3 children, Craig and Jamie with their 4 children and 3 grandsons, Adam and Theresé with their 2 children, and Joel and Kimi with their 2 daughters. As well as the older brother who admired him, Mikel, and his loving sister-in-law, Darlene.

Lin adored his grandchildren. When they were babies, he loved holding them and falling asleep in his recliner. As they grew older, he was all about large family camping trips and fishing expeditions. He was the father and grandfather at every birthday, graduation and wedding with either a camera or vows firmly in hand.

He valued his friendships and working relationships very highly, always happy to help where he could. Lending a hand to others brought meaning to his life and his unflinching generosity was an example to all who knew him.

He was a devout Christian, firm in his faith. For this reason, we can say with joy and confidence that he is with God. He is no longer in pain. And finally, all the mysteries of the universe have been exposed to him, he has answers and his curiosity can rest.

We love you, Dad. Make sure your mansion in heaven is ready for us all, because your family tree just keeps exploding bigger and bigger almost daily.
