Lynn Reese Hansen born on June 21st, 1951 in Logan, Utah, completed his mortal journey on November 16, 2023.

Lynn is preceded in death by his Grandson, Ethan Hansen, his mother Betty Lou Reese Hansen, his father Wallace Devere Hansen, his brother Marc Hansen, and his sister-in-law Janet Hansen. Lynn is survived by his brother Doug Hansen and sisters Diane (Kent) Hoggan and Carrie (Scott) Davies, his sweetheart Linda Savage Hansen, daughters Angela (Boyd) White, Natalie (Neal) Peton, Ginger (DJ) Lewis, Laurel (Brian) King and Lindsey (Ryan) Martineau and sons Ryan (Camie) Hansen and Reese (Laura) Hansen, 28 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren, whom he loved and adored.

Lynn was born and raised in his beloved Logan, Utah in the shadow of the Logan Temple. He received his endowment in the same temple he loved so much and served a full-time mission in the Gulf States, where he met the woman of his dreams, Linda, who was also serving in the same mission. He was enamored by her then which continues to this day. She was his sunshine, laughter, and love. Where mom went, dad followed.

Lynn and Linda were sealed for time and all eternity in the Logan, Utah temple on November 21st, 1972. They welcomed their first three children within the first three years of marriage, and continued totaling 7 children. Dad loved his children completely and never failed them. Our favorite memories of dad include family camping trips, listening to Simon & Garfunkel on road trips, his love of ice cream and peanut M&M’s, his secret love of slapstick humor, and how happy he was when mom was near.

Not only was Lynn a father to 7 blessed children, but he also stepped in and became a dad to the 8 children that lived across the street. He loved his Sweet children like his own.

Lynn was an avid musician and played the drums. If his drums weren’t around, he was drumming on tables, chairs, couches, and even his leg. He always had a beat, even until the very end. He was also a gifted artist where his love for design took him into the field of drafting, and eventually into structural engineering. Dad’s draftsman lettering was impeccable, beautiful, and art itself.

For anyone who knew Lynn, they knew 2 things. He loved God, Jesus Christ and the gospel of Jesus Christ above all, and our mother second. These loves never left him, even when dementia took most other memories away.

Lynn served faithfully in callings for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in innumerable ways. He showed his love to God through service and served in Bishoprics, as Bishop twice, in Stake Presidencies and High Counsels. How we miss his guidance, love, and direction which always centered around Jesus Christ.

The greatest legacy he leaves us all with is his example. He was goodness exemplified and was gentle, loving, had no guile, and was the ultimate peacemaker.

He led his family in love and righteousness and we know he will continue to lead us. We are so grateful for the way in which he lived his life, for we know where he is and that he will always watch over us.

Funeral services were Wednesday, November 22, 2023 at 11am in the Spanish Fork LDS chapel, 352 South Spanish Fork Parkway. No viewing was held, but visiting took place prior to the funeral from 10-10:45.
