Collin cooking hot dogs at our April 21st 2012 clean-up. Wasn't feeling well that day but it was important to him to be involved.

Fullfilling a request from a departed friend, I was going to post his story again, Tomorrow morning for his friends.

However after seeing this thread bumped and all the people who really Loved him, comment about their relationship with Collin, I think now is as good of time as any to say...............from Collin.

Thank You to the Great Lakes 4x4 Community, for the love, support, and understanding given to me (Collin) and my Family during this struggle.

........and with his statement I would like to add the article posted in the GLFWDA "Boondocker".

Life Celebration of Collin Hansen
Collin Hansen left his mark in this world for everybody in the 4 wheeling community to see. He was a son, husband, father, and friend who left those of us who knew him wanting more. He also was an outdoor enthusiast, who loved being with nature, and off-roading. From his trips to Drummond Island, Rocks & Valleys, Badlands, and Silver Lake Sand Dunes near his home, he was either participating in an adventure or talking about going to one. Even while going through medical treatments he could still find the strength to help preserve our trails as shown in his involvement with the 56th Ave Near Silver Lake Road repair project in the fall of 2011.
Some have commented about his stature, being a giant of a man. We knew this to be true, but more so in due to his personality and heart for others, than his physical size. There wasn’t a person on this planet that Collin would not try to be a friend with. Sure he had disagreements, but would extend his hand and maybe offer you a cold beverage while he discussed with you the conflict.
Cancer took our young friend right before Memorial weekend, 2012. He was so looking forward to spending time in one of his off-road havens, with his son Cole and wife Courtney in the upcoming summer. He wanted to celebrate the accomplishments in his life that he was so proud of before he left this life for eternity. He gave many of us a mandate, to enjoy life, not to sweat the little stuff, and to LOVE EACH OTHER as Family and Fellow Man.
When his friends got together that rainy Friday to say their farewells to the beloved man, there was heaviness in the crowd. The mood changed however, when at the end of the trail ride in honor of Collin, we were given an amazing site. The sun broke out of the clouds and gave us a beautiful red glow across the horizon, as if to say, “Celebrate my friends, all is well”.

“I met Collin on the trail and he left us on a trail ride.”………………………………………… (Erin Early)

The first 30 years of Collin’s life he spent learning how to be a man, after his diagnosis, he spent it as a teacher to show the rest of us how to have that “Life Celebration”.
