Richard was born March 27, 1937 in Royal, UT son of James and Clara Hansen. Richard enjoyed a wonderful childhood in Price with his brothers, Gib and Stan. Richard received his BS, MS and PhD in Mathematics from the University of Utah. He married Allene Catherine Calder April 4, 1968. Richard loved his sweetheart and his children and was a wonderful father and husband. Everything he did was with them in mind. Richard loved teaching. He was a professor of math-ematics at Utah State University and Brigham Young University. He enjoyed singing, dancing and coaching soccer. He enjoyed the outdoors and loved spending his free time nurturing his own corner of the earth in his garden.
As a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he served in a variety of callings and was a faithful home teacher. Richard's loving personality and charming smile will be missed and remembered by all who knew him. Richard is now at peace and in the arms of his sweetheart and wife, Allene.
