March 13, 1955 – February 20, 2021

On February 20 at 9:30pm Richard Hanson peacefully left Redwater Hospital and went home to be with Jesus.

39 years ago Rick committed his life to Jesus. From that point on he devoted his life to serving God by studying the Bible and teaching it to others. He wasn’t a perfect person, but by the grace of God He is now in the most perfect place.

Rick was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, grandpa, and pastor. He leaves behind his wife of 37 years, Darlene; his three sons, Matthew, David and Andrew; his brothers, Gordon and Lonnie; his sisters, Bonnie and Carol; his grandkids, Crystal, Myla, Ava and Thea; his nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Rick is now with his mother, Marjorie; father, Harry; and sister, Linda.

Though he is gone, he will never be forgotten. Though we grieve as a family, we anticipate the day we will be reunited.

“Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I’m found
was blind but now I see.”
