IN­DIAN LAND - Rus­sell T. Han­son, Jr., 77, passed away De­cem­ber 13, 2018, after a fall on Thanks­giv­ing. Russ was a true son of the West. Born in Reno, NV, he spent the first half of his life in the Sacra­mento/CA foothills area, where he raised a fam­ily and had his own land sur­vey­ing busi­ness. His sur­vey­ing skills then took him to San Fran­cisco where he was em­ployed as a rout­ing en­gi­neer with Pa­cific Gas and Elec­tric Com­pany and met his wife of 26 years, Linda Na­gle Han­son. Russ loved hunt­ing, XC ski­ing, bik­ing for MS, and play­ing sports: foot­ball, bas­ket­ball, base­ball, in­clud­ing Fan­tasy Camp with the SF Giants, and golf. His love of golf took Linda and him to Pine­hurst, NC where he then found his real pas­sion - cro­quet. He com­peted through­out the south­east with the Pine­hurst Cro­quet Club and then the Tega Cay Cro­quet Club in SC. Russ and Linda had many ad­ven­tures, trav­el­ing thou­sands of miles in their RV. He also very much en­joyed their va­ca­tion homes, first in the moun­tains of CA, then at the beach in NC. In ad­di­tion to Linda, Russ is sur­vived by daugh­ters Keri Rud­dock and LeAnn Rund, step­sons Jeff and Cliff Rud­nick, 12 grand­chil­dren, and nine great­grand­chil­dren – all on the west coast, as well as sis­ters Norene Han­son and Pat Cunha, and his pre­cious dogs and cats. A memo­rial ser­vice will be held at South Meck­len­burg Pres­by­te­rian Church in Char­lotte, NC on Jan­uary 5, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. Con­tri­bu­tions in Russ’s name may be made to the US Cro­quet As­soc., your lo­cal an­i­mal res­cue or­ga­ni­za­tion, or the Alzheimer’s As­soc.
