Jary Mac Hansen of Bend, passed away on December 30, 2018. He was 70.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 5, 2018, at 2:00 PM at New Hope Church, located at 20080 Pinebrook Boulevard in Bend. A gathering of family and friends will follow the services at a private residence.
Jary was born in Lamar, CO, but lived most of his life in Oregon. He was a self-made man that left his family home early in life to travel to Oregon to attend Oregon State University; the first in his family to earn a college degree.
Jary enjoyed his work as a livestock auctioneer, ranch foreman, heavy equipment salesman, and concrete Redi-mix General Manager, but his best work was done with his family that he cared so deeply for.
Jary rarely mentioned his own accomplishments, but the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren were up for grabs and were proudly brought up in conversations with anyone who was willing to listen. Jary was a gentle soul that always had a kind word for folks and an extra hand to help anyone that needed it.
Jary was an avid outdoorsman that enjoyed hunting, fishing and boating, as long as it was with his family, he was happy.
Jary is survived by his wife, Sandy Hansen; his daughters, Charissa and Staci; son-in-law, Tj; niece, Chelsea; granddaughters, Grace, Emma, Maddie, Taylor and Haley; grandson, Mac; sisters, KyAnne McCain and Theresa Hansen and brothers, Mant Hansen and Don Shotwell. He is also survived by many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, several nieces and nephews.
