Dale Millard Hansen 93, entered into eternal rest on Monday, March 7, 2011 In Manteca. He was born in Van Zandt, Washington on July 7, 1917. He is preceded in death by his loving wife Agnes Hansen.

Mr. Hansen leaves behind his children; Hanna Seus and husband Gene of Manteca, Hans P. Hansen and wife Imee of New Jersey, Karen Aust and husband Craig of Redmond and Cleo Barry and husband Don of Texas. He was blessed to have 7 grandchildren; Aron, Sabrina and Christopher Seus; Rachael Bauer and Aubrey Aust; Cooper and Connor Barry; and an 8th grandchild on the way. As well as great-grand babies; Mason and Haylee Seus. He was a brother to Cleo Tomco of Alaska, Jeanne Nelson of Washington and Dorothy Robinson of Oklahoma as well as late the Donald Hansen.

Dale Hansen touched the lives of his family and many others by his curiosity, generosity, intelligence, kindness, and sharp wit.  He met Agnes, his wife of 60 years, in Germany two weeks after WWII ended, became engaged two weeks later, and although they did not see each other for almost 5 years, they were married 5 years to the day they met.  Over the next 30 years they raised 4 children while traveling and living around the world in India, Pakistan, Turkey, Taiwan, and Saudi Arabia.  Although Dale was a civil engineer by profession, he was a humanitarian, always looking to help someone with a smile, kind word, joke, or a helping hand. This included helping the injured, trying to save a baby who had lost his mother, paying for education, and providing food for the ill just to name a few of his endeavors.  He also generously supported his wife, Agnes’, many charitable causes.  Music was one of his favorite past times.  He played the electric guitar and loved music sessions with all his children. Later in life working on his computer became a special hobby, and he looked forward to getting email with new jokes that he would share with his friends.  What a wonderful man he was!

Arrangements for Mr. Hansen are under the direction of P.L. Fry and Son Funeral Home of Manteca, 290 North Union Road. A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Friday, March 11, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, 505 East North Street, Manteca. He will be laid to rest alongside his wife at St. Johns Catholic Cemetery. For condolences to the family please visit our web-site at search/ obituaries.
