John Fichmann Hansen passed away on January 26, 2018 at the age of 91, and is survived by his ex-wife Eva and their three children: Mark, Michael and Claudine.  A great example of the American Dream, John immigrated to the United States from Denmark in 1959, arriving in New York City on a sponsorship. He worked hard and eventually moved west where he started his own business in Santa Monica and later, Seattle. John and his family lived in Magnolia for over 40 years. For those that knew John, they would agree he marched to the beat of his own drum, had a sense of humor that often got him into trouble, and had a love for all things Danish. John’s family plans to spread his cremains over the turquoise waters off of Oahu, Hawaii, a favorite place of his to vacation.
