HANSEN, George Ernest
April 22, 1934 – Calgary, Alberta

George Hansen passed away with his family by his side, on Thursday, July 6, 2017, at the age of 83 years. George, known as Bulldog, was a proud native Calgarian who attended Western Canada High School, played junior football with the Broncs, and received his B.Sc from the University of Georgia. He was signed with the Stampeders in 1959, playing for seven years. He then moved into an administrative position with the club. George had a love for football, most especially for his teams, the Stampeders and the Georgia Bulldogs. George's life was influenced by many diverse cultures, having lived his life not only in Calgary, but also in the southern United States of Georgia and Mississippi, as well as overseas in the city of Dubai. He will be remembered as a humble, loyal, and kind man. He is survived by his children Carol, Charlotte, and George (Euphoria); grandchildren Kristin and True; sister June; and brother Colin. He was predeceased by his wife Jeanine; his parents Eva and George Hansen; brother Dennis; and sister Betty. A Celebration of Life will be held at The Red & White Club (1833 Crowchild Trail NW) on Friday, July 14, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. Join us in wearing red in honour of George.
