Victor LeRoy Hansen believed, “Life is good…but you gotta be tough.” And while his loved-ones struggle to be tough in his absence, we find peace in the celebration of his good life.

Born August 14, 1928, in Provo, Utah, 5th of 7 children to Oliver & Edna Hansen, he lived through the Great Depression but because of the resourcefulness of his family, never felt deprived. An obedient, respectful child, he developed a love of music from his mother, a painter’s eye from his father, and a love of nature’s beauty from both.

From 1948-1950 he served in the New England Mission.

He met Ruby Marie Jones at a BYU football game and won her over with a sack of apples. That night, he told his mother he’d met the girl he was going to marry. They were wed June 17, 1952 in the Salt Lake Utah Temple.

Mere months later he deployed to the Korean War as an Army Staff Sergeant assigned to a battalion office. His service in Korea was cut short by the tragic death of his first child, Vicki Linn, at birth. He returned home to Ruby determined to move forward with faith.

He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from BYU in 1955, and spent his professional career teaching choral music to children of all ages.

He loved to travel (visiting all 50 states, and 30 countries), tending to his flower garden, meeting new people, and serving in his various church callings. But his greatest love and joy was his family.

Vic was preceded in death by his sweetheart Ruby Marie, two daughters Vicki Linn Hansen & Patrice Hobson, great-granddaughter Elora, his parents, and 5 siblings. He is survived by his children, Brenda Walker (David), Peggy Campbell (Daniel), David Hansen (Amberlee), Van Hansen (Shauna), 19 grandchildren, 55 great-grandchildren and his brother Pat.

Due to the current COVID-19 health concerns, funeral services will be for immediate family only.

What a beautiful tribute to Uncle Vic, thank you for allowing all of us to share the service with you, wish we could have been there. I have so many memories from Concord, San Francisco, Yellowstone, Lovell, Utah and so much more in between. He was such a great example of faith, he could talk to anyone and make them feel at ease, he was an uncle we had the most fun with. I will miss him. I also imagine the reunion was truly special and I hope they all were able to sing the Lollipop Tree. Your families are all amazing and we see the results of Uncle Vic and Aunt Ruby’ teachings in all of you. I love you cousins. Keep in touch and our thought and prayers are with you.

So enjoyed the beautiful funeral for Vic. He and Ruby are beaming with pride watching their posterity carry on a legacy of faith, music, and a love for family. Thank you for sharing this beautiful event with us.
Wilford and Mary Lynne Jones
PS: I remember when I first met Vic and was welcomed into the family with a very specific interview. I think I passed when I told him my father was a band teacher and my mother was a piano teacher. Yes, he really had a magical / magnetic personality. Such an honor to have known him.

Vic always brought happiness to our family gatherings. I, a niece, remember when Vic brought Ruby to a family dinner; it was double happiness.
I spent a summer with his family in California. While riding in the car with his family, they all broke out in song, each one singing his/her favorite song as loud as they could at the same time. What fun!!
The funeral was a great tribute to him and inspired us to enjoy life and to be true to our covenants. We want to be with him again.
Love you all,
Judy Hansen Stephensen

Uncle Vic had a great impact on my life. He was always so happy and fun to be around. He helped us learn fun songs.

We always laughed and enjoyed when he and Omar growled and stomped around like two grizzy bears and then puffed out their bellies and banged together. Each would then declare triumph over the other.

I love and will miss him dearly.

I was startled to see the obituary for Vic (Victor) in the paper. My condolences go to his family. Not too many of you will recognize my name, probably only Patrick. My name is John, but Vic and Pat knew me as Jack or Jackie.

I have fond memories of the Hansen family. We lived just north, through the field, of the Hansen home. I and my siblings were friends with the Hansen children. I palled around with Roger.

When I was born, my mother had a rough delivery. Even though she had a two year old toddler to take care of, Sis. Hansen (Edna) volunteered to take care of me for the first six weeks of my life until my mother regained her strength and was able to take care of me.

The Hansen kids became quite attached to that “cute” little baby Jackie, and Vic told me that they all cried when I had to leave to return to my family. Vic always called me his “little brother”. Whenever I would see Vic, his eyes would light up, give me a hug and say, “How’s my little brother?”.

I am making making this too long, although I could go on telling of my many memories of the Hansens. Please know of my sympathies for you, in Vic’s passing. At the same time, I rejoice for Vic. I have an image of the rejoicing going on as he renews relationships of family, friends, students and others waiting his return to the Spirit World. Please know of my love for the Hansen family. I am sorry, during the circumstances, I am unable to attend the funeral.

My prayers are for the lessening of your sorrows.

~John (Jackie) Hall ~
