Brian Paul Hanson
My Brother, my best friend and my inspiration. I can’t personally think of a person I have done cooler things with, talked about cooler things and lived cooler things with! We flew hot air balloons together, we crossed mountain passes together, we skied on Black Diamond’s, we snorkeled the warm coral reef of Hawaii. We looked into the jaws of the Kiliwa Volcano, and we ran away from mom and Dwight together which was the scariest thing of all these things. Brian would do some of those things carrying twice the weight of the rest of us, bringing such things as a video camera so he could film the adventure for the rest of us to see, and things like canned ham and dried hash browns and scrambled eggs for the rest of us to enjoy. And I tell you what, things like that when you are ten miles from the closest road is a beautiful thing and no easy feat. Brian was the kind of man that if he felt like there was an injustice or wrong, he was darn sure going to say something, and if he had means, to do something about. The war in the Ukraine is a great example. Brian felt it was wrong what was happening to those people, and, if he had the means, was willing to fight and die for a complete stranger, because his huge heart thought it was wrong. If it were one of his siblings or family members, and something wasn’t right and if he could, he would darn well do something.
These are the things I would like Brian remembered for, things like soaring with the Eagles like he had the courage to do so. I have no doubt my brother Brian P Hanson alias Flying B is soaring with the Angels and God right now
