Friends were known to him by the nicknames Chopper, Chief, or Lips. Hanson was employed as a master auto technician by Mann Chevrolet for many years. Always willing to lend a hand with any project, big or small, he was often the first call whenever anyone had something they needed help fixing. Hanson was so good at so many things. Master mechanic, general contractor, plumber, lumberjack, roofer and recently master griller. Hanson could do anything he really set his mind to, if he didn’t know how to do something he would dive in head first and learn it as he went. In his free time, he enjoyed kayaking, fishing, good movies, and most of all spending time around a fire with family and friends.

Hanson was a loving and attentive husband to Kara (Thomas) Bultman for nearly 16 years. He made her laugh and feel loved and beautiful every single day. Together they have two wonderful children, Vincent Thomas and Kylie Bultman. Hanson was a fantastic father, invested in his children and loved them both with his whole self. Hanson was a caring and loving brother to Dawn Barradas, Mandy Cox, and Troy Bultman who will miss and love him always. He was often a father figure and source of great fun and hilarious bits of wisdom to his 8 beloved nieces and nephews, and 8 great-nieces and nephews.

He will be greeted with joy in heaven at the big bonfire in the sky by his father, Donald Bultman and his sweet dog, Luther.
