John (Jack) Walter Hanson - March 28, 1932 - May 6, 2020. Much loved husband of Arlene (Code) for 68 years. Son of John & Mary Ellen Hanson, brother to Gloria McKerracher and Barry. Proud father of Susan (John Alink), Bob, Steve (Sandy) and adoring grandfather to Erin (Ryan) Phillips, Lindsay Melville, Mitchell & Cody Hanson, Shelbi & Marci Hanson and Mike (Jaime) & Steven Alink. Jack was a respected brother-in-law and uncle to a large family of nieces and nephews.
Jack’s kindness, wisdom, wit and fondness for story-telling endeared him to all. A humble gentleman, Jack quietly did many good deeds throughout his life, never once seeking praise or attention. He taught us that when you are kind to others, it is returned tenfold.
Jack worked for Hydro One for 37 years, then enjoyed retirement life full of hobbies. He was a talented wood carver, golfer and hunter.
He was a Past Master of Madawaska Masonic Lodge, a Shriner and member of Grace St. Andrews United Church.
