Remembrances - ære være hans minde
We must also say goodbye to
Alf Edmund Hansen (July 9,1934 - July 26, 2018)
Alf was a master craftsman at the early age of 15, having been schooled in Denmark as a carpenter and furniture maker.
After arriving from Denmark at the age of 17, Alf spent 9 years in Edmonton, but settled in Parksville, BC for the past 50 years. He built hundreds of homes as well as some commercial buildings in town. In 1970, he started the Englishman River Inner Tube Race. He was active with saving the Parksville Estuary from further development and created the Friends Flats Group to raise awareness. He was also involved with the Nature Trust of BC, the Parksville Fish and Game Club, and of course, our Danish Canadian Club. Alf is survived by Margit, his wife of 59 years.
