Michael Hansen Obituary

In the garden of his life, Michael “Mike” Hansen has tilled his last furrow and set sail on the ultimate voyage.  Born in Kenosha on August 29, 1958, he charted his course through 65 years of adventure before docking at the peaceful shore of Sturgeon Bay on March 10, 2024.

Mike’s roots ran deep, nourished by his love of the natural world and his childhood days on the farm.  A true Renaissance man with soil under his nails and sawdust in his hair, he cultivated joy in the kitchen and crafted his legacy with the tools of his many trades, from shipbuilding to constructing memories with his grandkids – his most precious projects.

A proud Southern Door High School Alum, Mike never missed the opportunity to share his knowledge and plant seeds of kindness and laughter in every encounter.

Survivors include 4 children, Amanda (Harold) Hermes of Green Bay, Christopher (Jin Bai) Hansen, Aaron Hansen, and Michelle Hansen, all of Sturgeon Bay; 12 grandchildren, Payton, Adrianna, Alessandra, Oscar, Owen, Chloe, Abigail, Christopher, Imani, Aaven, Evelyn, and Bethany; 4 brothers, Jim (Sue), Peter (Pam), Paul (Sue), George (Pam); 2 sisters, Jane (Larry) Jennerjohn and Julie Hansen; brother-in-law Clint Beth; former wife Karen Hansen, and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister Patricia Beth.

Family and friends are invited to gather and share a forest’s worth of stories at Forbes Funeral Home on Monday, March 18, 2024, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.  A prayer service will be held at 6:30 pm.  The grand ship of Mike’s life will be commemorated at Holy Name of Mary Church in Maplewood at 11:00 am on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, where we will bid him farewell as he transitions from earthly orchard to the celestial seas.  Friends may also visit at the church on Tuesday from 10:00 am until the time of mass.  Burial will be in the church cemetery.

As we celebrate Mike’s evergreen spirit, let’s root ourselves in the happiness he harvested and remember, a life well lived is the best dish on the menu.
