Charles R. “Charlie” Hansen, age 70, passed away Sunday, April 7, 2019.
He was born in Galveston, Texas on September 30, 1948. He graduated from Ball High School and was proud to serve in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. He was a boilermaker by trade and worked at Todd Shipyard for most of his career. He completely retired in 2010 to spend more time being “Pawpaw” to his 12 grandchildren. He was an avid hunter and cherished many memories of his time spent with family and friends at the Black Cat Hunting Club. All who knew him will sadly miss his colorful and humorous story telling.
