Gerald Brigham Hansen passed away on November 4, 2022 in North Salt Lake, Utah. Gerald was born on March 18, 1977 in Cheverly, Maryland.

Gerald was independent, naturally curious, and bright. The family’s encyclopedia was his free reading throughout grade school. From the start he was a voracious reader, particularly enjoying reading and discussing history and politics. He was witty and had a keen sense of humor.

Gerald was a loyal friend and kind to everyone he met. He loved Indian food, used bookstores, board games, and New York Times crossword puzzles. Adored by family, including nieces and nephews who thought Gerald’s chief occupation in life was to play with them, be it Fisher and Price, pandas, or Nerf battles. He patiently helped all his nieces and nephews, from toddlers to teenagers, learn the essential life skills from rocket launching to Skull King.

Gerald graduated from high school in Havana, IL in 1993. He lived the majority of his adult life in Salt Lake City, Utah and Seattle, Washington. Gerald assisted with, and then managed the print shop for Seattle University for 20 years. However, his primary focus in both Seattle and Salt Lake City was music. Gerald enjoyed playing and recording music with various bands, including Eye of Nix, Michael Ray and the Plastic Sheets, Euphondism, and Brigham.

Gerald was preceded in death by his grandparents and niece Karen Creer. Gerald is survived by parents Alan and Elizabeth (Beth) Hansen, siblings and their spouses Naomi and Doug Creer, Dave and Amy Hansen, Rob and Julie Hansen, Sara and Bill Reece, nephews and nieces Skyler, Ethan, Jonathan, Sophie, and Evelyn Hansen, Zachary, Daniel, and Ryan Creer, Lizzy, K.C., and LaPreal Reece.
