Carl E. Hansen Obituary

1946 - 2017

On March 16, 2017, at the age of 70, Carl passed away peacefully with his wife Kathryn and their sons Michael and Brian by his side.

Carl was born December 14, 1946 in Mason City, Iowa to Carl E. and Esther M. Hansen. Soon after, the family moved to California, finally settling in Yuba City where Carl attended school, graduating from Yuba City High School in 1964. He attended Yuba College, and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and Teaching Credential from California State University, Chico.

Carl loved music and played in various school and community music groups through the years. He was a dedicated music teacher for over thirty years, beginning his career at Anna McKinney School in East Marysville. He then transferred to Yuba City Unified School District where he finished his career retiring in 2004. It was always a source of great pride and joy when he would encounter former students or their parents to hear the stories of their experiences in his classes and performance groups.

Carl was an avid fisherman his whole life. His love of fishing began with his father and he shared that love with his wife and sons and his cherished fishing buddies; life long friend Bill Brayton, Rick Meyer and Nevio Renzullo, who along with his cousin Bob Lucas, stood by him and supported him through his illnesses and passing.

Carl and Kathryn were high school sweethearts and married in 1968. He is survived by his wife, his sons Michael (Jill) and Brian (Jennifer) and his six much adored grandchildren; Casey, Christian, Haylee, Max, Alex and Cole.

At his request there will be no services. The family suggests donations in his memory to the or one of his favorite charities: St. Jude's, or Special Olympics.
