Larry John Hansen, the son of LeRoy John and Dorothy Mae (Hansen) Hansen, was born Oct. 20, 1958, in Council Bluffs, and died peacefully at his home in Exira, on Feb. 15, 2017, at the age of 58 years, 3 months, and 25 days.
John attended Council Bluffs Community schools graduating from Abraham Lincoln High School with the Class of 1977. He then took classes at Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs where he studied Auto mechanics. John was employed at various jobs for many years until he was forced to retire due to his failing health.
On Jan. 5, 1989, he was united in marriage to Kelly Johnson in Council Bluffs. They were blessed with three additional children to add to their blended family.
John's passion was anything that had to do with cars. He was able to repair and paint any type of vehicle. He enjoyed racing and was an avid NASCAR fan. But most of all he loved spending time with his family.
John was preceded in death by his son Kurtis Lund; his parents; and his brothers and sisters.
Survivors include his wife Kelly Hansen of Exira; his children Michael Hansen of Emerson, Kelli Whyte of Buda, Texas, Elizabeth Woodward of Harlan, Nathan Jonson of Exira, and Taylor Hansen of Elk Horn; his loving grandchildren; his sisters Virginia Hansen of Elk Horn, and Judy Peterson of Council Bluffs; his special friends Mark and Kelly Fay of Carter Lake; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
To honor his request, he was cremated and a Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
