Lyle Hansen 80, was ushered by heavenly angels into the arms of his loving Savior on August 26, 2013. Lyle was born May 22, 1933 in Pentwater. He was proceeded to Glory by his wife of 49 years Mary Ellen Hansen, his father, Hans Hansen, mother, Flora Schram, brothers Lloyd Hansen, Lawrence Hansen, Leeland Hansen and Lester Hansen, and sisters Gladys Lauber, Emily Bolenbaugh, Beverly Hansen, Geneva Kaiser and Florence Hansen. Lyle is survived by his brother Leonard Peterson and his children Sandra F. (John) Ruder, Brenda (Stephen) Nauta, Bill Hansen and Nancy Hansen, as well as 14 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, soon to be 4 great-grandchildren. Lyle was a dedicated soldier serving in the Korean War. He was employed for almost 30 years as an accountant for the state of Michigan retiring in September 1984. Most of all Lyle was a faithful servant of Jesus Christ using his musical talents as well as serving for years as a church board member, Sunday school superintendant and Sunday school teacher. Today, Lyle can walk again. His hands will again be able to play his guitar, and his voice will praise the Lord in song. He will again hold his wife Mary Ellen and he will meet Jesus face to face. Although Lyle will be missed by family and friends, we know it is but for a little while. For one day we will join him as a family choir in praise and worship of our Lord Jesus Christ.
