Obituary for Gregory Hansen

Gregory Douglas Hansen, a resident of Milford, Michigan and a native of Grand Ledge, Michigan, died on December 1, 2016 after a sudden cardiac event. He was 54 years old. Generous and selfless in life, Greg was a registered donor and his generosity continues with his passing.

He is survived by his wife, Robin Hansen; his daughters, Cassandra (Mark) DeSatterlee and Samantha (James) Peterson; his son, Greyson Hansen; granddaughter, Meleah DeSatterlee; parents, Doug and Suzanne Hansen; sister Rachelle (Mike) McCrone; brothers, Ron (Lori) Hansen and Jeff (Kelly) Hansen; mother in law, Patricia (the late Ellis) Mangrum. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and many dear friends.

Greg could accomplish anything he set his mind to. He was the 1980 valedictorian of Grand Ledge High School and then went on to get his Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering at Michigan Tech University. He had a diverse career in engineering and real estate, and was always an entrepreneur at heart.

His closest family and friends cherish all the fond memories with him and describe him as follows:

G Poppa, selfless, prankster, smart, fun, loved by all, highly respected, soft, skillful, warm, committed, loving, strong, determined, kind, caring, focused, driven, resourceful, wise, handsome, intentional, lived life out loud, talented, Christian, curious, big thinker, innovative, confident, problem solver, Parrot head, witty, rallied to help the underdog, loved by all children, invested, playful, Uncle TaDa, solution-oriented, jokester, joyous, passionate, re purposeful, prepper. Loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, grandfather, cousin, friend.

He truly enjoyed and cherished the life God gave him.

He found the beauty in everything and everyone and saw value in people and things where others may see none. He was madly in love with his wife and not a day went by that he told her just how beautiful she is.

His pure joy and laughter was contagious to all. He may have even caught you by surprise barking like a dog, talking like Donald Duck or with one of his cheesy raps he conveyed his heart through rhyming and poetry. Greg loved cheering on Michigan State University and was a lifelong Detroit Lions fan.

His son, Greyson cherishes the time spent building his treehouse together and their many family vacations to Florida. He and his family loved their Florida life and planned to retire there. His children and family are so grateful for all the knowledge, talents, personality and wise life lessons he shared with them over their years together, to live small, work hard and play hard, and always remember one thing (he loves us and God loves us). His warm and engaging spirit always looked out for others, those closest to him as well as perfect strangers. Being related by blood was never a prerequisite for him to treat you like family.

Greg had such an amazing servant heart, contagious sense of humor, quick wit and was a tenacious leader. One of many examples, after hurricane Katrina he drove a trailer full of supplies down to Mississippi to help people rebuild their lives. Rebuild America was one of his many passions and businesses that inspired he and his wife while they rebuilt America one house at a time.

All of these things are not even a fraction of what made up Greg, and the God given gifts, talents and purpose he brought to all our lives. He didn't just provide for all of us, he taught us the skills and work ethic to obtain them for ourselves. G Poppa made the world a better place and gave us all something to smile about. These words can't demonstrate all of what he meant to us, if you had the privilege to also make memories with him, cherish those and pass on the smiles.

Greg, always remember one thing. God loves you and we love you.
