Franklin Barnell Hansen, April 22, 1919 - Sept.11, 2012, was known as a man among men. He believed that the measure of a man was how hard he could work and how many hours each day he could work that hard. Monday, Frank was on his four wheeler, putting a neighbor's horses back into the pasture when he rolled the four wheeler onto himself. Frank was 17 when his father, David, died. He took on the responsibility of the farm and supporting his mother,Adeline, and family. Frank's siblings and their spouses include Dave (Awanda) Hansen, Jack (Laverta) Hansen, Loise (Clarence) Hatt, Chloe (Wendel) Bagley, and Ona Mae (Jim) Gardner. As a horseman, Frank broke the horses and also trained the teams he needed for transportation, pulling the hay mower, raking the loose hay and stacking it using a pole derrick. Frank said he broke the horses when the snow was deep because the landings were softer in the snow and also the horse could not buck as hard in the deep snow. As a young man, Frank transported the neighborhood children to school and back using his team and sled, covered with straw and warm blankets. Later with the full responsibility of the farm, after milking and caring for the animals, he rode a horse the 6miles to Teton High School where he graduated. Frank and Ivy, married 66 years, were partners in everything they worked side by side farming and also in raising their family. Frank said about Ivy, "She is the best of the best." He also said about her, "She works harder than any two hired hands" They were proud of their 9 children. Working the fields and milking the cows was a family affair. The boys became strong hefting and stacking those 120 lb bales of hay. They built strong bodies and determination that helped them build a nationally ranked wrestling dynasty at Brigham Young University. Coach Fred Davis gave Frank a blue Letterman jacket with four gold bars on the white Y. Frank and Ivy were proud of their children, when asked about their family, They would say, "We have 8 teachers and a nurse." All 9 of their children have been married in the LDS temple and 7 children and 14 grandchildren have served missions. There are 39 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren. The 9 children and spouses are Joan (Roy) Jones, Mike (Sherice) Hansen, Laron (Beverly) Hansen, Mark (Julie) Hansen, David (Cherie) Hansen,Brad (Emily) Hansen, Ron (Dana) Hansen, Lana (Morgan) Robertson, and Julie (Todd) Crocket.
