Jeffrey Kermit Hansen

After waging a valiant three year battle with cancer, Jeffrey Kermit Hansen died at home on Saturday, July 26, 2008.
Jeff was bon August 7, 1945 to Kermit and Barbara Hansen. He grew up amidst the Bardsdale orange groves and his beloved town of Fillmore. He graduated from Fillmore High School, attended Arizona State, served his country as a soldier during the Vietnam War and eventually found his life's calling at sea. After earning a navigator's license he sailed the seven seas eventually retiring from his last adventure as 1st officer with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. The world was his workplace but Fillmore was where his heart was and that is where his family and friends embraced, nurtured and loved him.
Jeff’s legacy is one of warmth, humor and love. A friend to all and stranger to none, he was a guy's guy and a woman's friend. A visit with Jeff always left one with at least a smile and more likely a good laugh. He was a joy on earth. He will be missed.
