Marvin “Marv” Franklin Hansen, age 82, of Sedro-Woolley, Washington passed away at home June 3, 2022. He was born November 30, 1939, in Big Timber, Montana to Tonnes and Alice (Franklin) Hansen.
Although he was born in Montana, his family moved to Lopez Island when he was five years old. There he grew up with many great adventures. He graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 1958. He then met a girl from Gold Hill, Oregon who was on vacation with her family. They married on December 3, 1960. The first few years of marriage they moved quite frequently and then in 1967 they landed in Skagit Valley. He had many different jobs until the mid-seventies when he went to work for Dakota Creek Industries building boats. That became his career for 20+ years. When he retired from boat building, he went to work at A&I Manufacturing, Inc working with his daughter, son in law, and granddaughter. This man could fix anything and kept the machinery running.
He enjoyed his road trips, loved the water, and loved captaining any boat. He was a true story teller, always leaving you laughing.
On August 4, 1956, he dedicated his life to Jehovah. He volunteered much of his time to talking to people about the bible and loved having great conversations with his neighbors. He was a member of the Sedro-Woolley Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses since 1967.
Marv is survived by his wife of 61 years, Bonnie; daughter, Tamar (Michael) DeGraff; grandchild Malchijah (Matthew) Boyd. He is also survived by siblings, Dianna Tueber, John (Carol) Hansen and Deborah Arnott.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Edward Hansen, and his son, Curtis Hansen.
