Del was born to Hans and Charlotte Hansen in Swift Current Sask. on November 14 1942.
At the age of 3, he moved with his brothers and sisters to Kelowna, B.C. where he spent the remainder of his life. He left high school to work at Safeway which then led him into his lifetime career of food brokering. He loved golf, fishing and RVing. He loved entertaining family, friends and business associates.
Del was a good friend to many and generous to a fault. He was a family man through and through and so having passed away on February 13, BC Family Day, was so fitting with all of us by his side that day. He survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Pat; his three children Tamra Hansen, Kimberly (Jay) Taylor and Chris (Ana) Hansen; Six Grandchildren Sydney and Sophia Taylor; Miguel, Sammy, Marianna and Agustin Hansen. As well as 6 brothers and sisters and their families too many to list, none the less, he will be missed by all.
We were so blessed to have had the care of Dr. Michael Bobyn, he quickly became a friend and confidant of Dels and we thank him from the bottom of our hearts. We also want to give special thanks to the palliative care nurses and caregivers at the Central Okanagan Hospice for all of the loving care they gave him during his stay there. Words can not express our gratitude.
