Ron’s service as director of the SF Federal Reserve in Salt Lake exemplified professionalism. In one of his many roles, he hosted informative meetings of the Wasatch Front Economic Forum, and even conducted tours of the bank. His expertise was unparalleled as were his intellectual contributions to the economic community in Utah. I, and many others, are better for working with Ron.

Shirley and family,
I have so many fond memories of Ron as a church leader in our ward, as a friend who seemed interested in our family and of humor about getting me to move our banking business from Kansas to “his bank” in Logan.
I still remember when you called me, Shirley, on one of Kurt’s first days of attending Hillcrest, saying that he was at your house w/John as he couldn’t remember how to get home. We had just moved from Kansas!
Your entire family is special to me and Kurt has been a happy employee of Zions for over thirty years. My thoughts are w/you all.
— Mary Ann Kohfeld
God bless the Hanson family.Ron always was kind to me as a child growing up in Logan.
— Michael Bertoch
Dear Shirley and Dave, John, Mike and Jacque
I was sorry to read of Ron’s passing. He was my boss for many years at First National Bank of Logan and Zions. I enjoyed the time getting to know and watch the children grow up. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. May God bless you in this time of sorrow and sadness.

Dear Shirley and Family,
Please accept my sincere condolences for Ron’s passing.
I am very sorry for your loss.
Even though it has been a number of years, I have always thought of Ron as a good man. I always felt very welcome in your home near the Logan Country Club.
— Michael Butkus
My own career was very positively influenced by Ron’s example of 24/7 customer service and sincere “for the love of it” community involvement. I enjoyed every interaction I had with Ron over the last four decades. Linda and I send our condolences to you Shirley and to your entire family. Ron’s was truly a life well-lived!
— Mike and Linda Brough
We wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to you and
your family on Ron ‘s passing. Few people have achieved
the position of respect and high esteem which he enjoyed for so many years in this community. His absence will be felt by many for years to come.
Your sons and our boys were together at Hillcrest through some interesting times. Please know that we consider ourselves blessed to have known your family.
With deepest sympathy,
Mildred and Harald Singer

I was deeply saddened by the news of Ron’s passing, and equally saddened that we were not able to make it either to the viewing or the funeral. Janeil had knee replacement surgery not long ago and is still very much in the recovery mode. We are still quite limited in what we can wisely do. Please accept our apologies. I was made aware by Mose Wright that Ron was not doing well, but his passing caught me by surprise.
Janeil joins me in expressing to you our sympathies and best wishes. We know that there will be times of loneliness and longing ahead, but you can take strength and comfort in the knowledge of sacred and eternal promises for the future. You should take comfort also in the knowledge that you are loved and respected by so many, as Ron also is loved and respected. I appreciated Ron’s friendship at Sigma Chi. He had returned from his mission to Great Britain, and I was getting ready to serve there as well. When I departed, he gave me a small leather tote-bag that he had acquired in England to use for his scriptures. I used it throughout my mission and for several years afterwards. Every time I opened it to use my scriptures I thought of Ron. Finally, I chose to follow his example and passed it on to another friend who was leaving on a mission. It was understood that he should do the same after his return. I have no idea how missionaries have used it or where it may be now, but I am confident it has been well used by many.
Shirley, we pray for Heaven’s blessings to be with you to bring every needed comfort to you in the times ahead.
