A Celebration of Life will be held on April 6, 2024, at 11:30 am at First United Methodist Church, 23 North Seneca Avenue, Newcastle, Wyoming.

Chris was born in Newcastle, Wyoming, on June 29, 1954, to parents Bill and Lorna Hansen. He grew up and attended schools in Newcastle. Chris played basketball, played in the band and was a Scout. He graduated from Newcastle High School in 1972. He enjoyed his class reunions. He was a member of the Methodist church and loved the Lord.

Chris enjoyed the outdoors. He went on many deer and elk hunting trips with his grandparents, parents, uncles and cousins. Likewise fishing, camping times, skiing and climbing were fabulous adventures.

After graduation from high school, Chris moved to Spearfish, SD and worked and obtained his Master Electrician certification. He owned his own company, Hansen Electric. He married Georgia Sandgren. Involvement in the Spearfish community was important to Chris, and he was a member of the Spearfish Volunteer Fire Department until retirement.

Chris graduated from Black Hills University in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology/Assoc. He would say “My most important birthday is my Alcoholics Anonymous birthday, March 16, 2000. “ His sobriety and serving at AA were very important to him.

He is survived by his sister, Darlene (Travis) Sears; aunts and uncle, Rose Allen, Lorraine Davis, Barbara Hansen, Shirley Borgialli, Helen Nicolls, Jack (Betty) Hansen; and many cousins and friends.
