Daril James Hansen, 84, passed away Oct. 31, in Provo. He was born May 28, 1934, in Elsinore, to Aril Claudias and Emma Gladys Anderson Hansen. He married Faye Esther Flood, Oct. 14, 1955, in McClelland, Iowa. The marriage was solemnized Oct. 14, 2000, in the Manti LDS Temple. She preceded him in death July 14, 2008.
Daril served in the U.S. Air Force and retired after 21 years. He has also worked with the BLM and retired from the U.S. Forest Service.
He loved being in the outdoors. He enjoyed taking the kids and grandkids on fishing trips, camping and riding in the mountains.
He and Faye loved to garden and always waited for the humming birds and cardinals to come by. He had a morning route that consisted of the post office, café and hanging out with the brothers (and all the guys in town) solving the world’s woes.
He is survived by his daughters, Caroline Veater and Sonya Hansen; 10 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and siblings, Kendall (Sharon) Hansen and Barth Hansen.
Preceding him in death are his parents; son, Kent Lee Hansen; and grandson, Bruce Lee Hansen.
