Mr. Jimmy Hansen

July 4, 1938 — September 20, 2014

Jimmy S. Hansen, 86, of rural Weston County passed away September 12, 2014 at his home on skull Creek. He was born July 4, 1928 on the Canyon Ranch near the Four Corners, Wyoming to Carl and Ella (Toth) Hansen. His childhood was spent on the ranch during the summers and in Newcastle in the winters. He attended school in Newcastle and graduated in 1948. His high school highlight was playing basketball.
Jimmy loved Zelpha (Davis) Hansen from age 16 until death. They were married September 13, 1949. They made their home in the Canyon the first year then moved to the Davis Ranch where they lived for 44 happy married years. They were blessed with four children: Gwenda (Tom) Freed, Williston, ND; Dale (Carmel) Hansen, Banner, WY; Paul (Lori) Hansen, Cody, WY; and Bruce (Kim) Hansen, Newcastle, WY.
Jimmy was known for loving all the teens of the neighborhood. He was always willing to help anyone with a problem. He loved the youth activities. His family have fond memories of their dad callings square dances, chaperoning camp, making the pickup into an ampatheater and taking all the kids to the drive in. He hauled horses to rodeos and then the truck was a camper at night. All the kids were welcome to rodeo at the Hansen arena. Jimmy always welcomed all youth to hunt on his ranch.
Jimmy was an inventor, welder, mechanic, machinist, carpenter, cowboy, rancher and farmer by trade. He was a member of the Skull Creek Farm Bureau for years and an active 4-H leader. He served a term on the Newcastle School Board.
Jimmy was an avid reader and debater of politics and local government. He loved company and guests. He always had a story or a joke for every occasion
Jimmy was blessed with nine grandchildren. He was able to love 14 great grandchildren and one godchild in his life. They remember best going down to Grandpa's to get ice cream bars from the freezer and all his stories.
Jimmy leaves a large family of his four children, 8 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, 3 brothers and 4 sisters. Jimmy is preceded in death by his beloved Zelpha, his parents, a dear grandson (Matt) and two great grandchildren (Kody and Kyle).
