I worked with Art at PSEG. I will always remember him as the tall, dark, handsome and quiet guy. He was always a gentlemen and really rocked his beard. Rest in peace.

He will be missed. He would visit my parents off and on over the years, usually after returning from Norway to share pictures of their trip. After my dad died he has been the only relative from the Hansen side of the family who stayed in touch with my mom. She enjoyed his correspondence whether a phone call, email or surprise visit. I really got to know him when I did remodeling work on their Seaside Heights condo ( I wonder what he did with the bedroom full of baseball cards lol). I moved to Florida 9 years ago but mom has always forwarded me his emails and I had very much wanted to see him again, sadly that can't happen now. Again he will be missed. RIP Artie, so sorry Hilde
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Art, since he was my best friend in high school and his mother and father, were an extremely generous key to how my life and career developed. Without knowing him and enjoying many, many hours screwing around as nerdy teens, and with his supportive mother and father, my life would have been much different. His father accepted me as a mate on his boat and taught me to work on it, and this led to supporting me getting a job as a marine biologist. I have so many great memories being with them, and "Uncle Johnny Hanson" : going to a Giants ballgame, 24 innings I think - the longest game in history, I think. Mornings swimming and goofing around in Galilee waiting for his father and brother, et al's boat to return through the surf and to help sort the catch. He chose to be stationed in Ethiopia when in the army, because I had lived there with my army father, and he saw my photos. I regret that in midlife we were both busy with our lives and children and did not see each other. I am glad we re-connected recently. This could go on for ever. I will never forget being with and enjoying his friendship. My heart goes out to all of his family.
