  9. To the Hansen family, It was startling news to hear of Gregg’s passing . He will be dearly missed on a personal level . Greg and I worked together a lot on some major shutdowns that requires a lot of personal involved it was amazing how he organized all the task with how many hrs and minutes it took to complete . Also Gregg and I had a competitive side when it came to shaking hands let’s say we would try to crush each other’s hands .I will miss him talking to me about playing baseball telling me how well he played .

  17. I am greatly saddened by the news of Greg’s passing. I first met Greg about 30 years ago when I worked at Abbott Park Utilities CED/GES, during that time we shared alot of projects, laughs and accomplishments. We rooted for the Cubs no matter what. I teased him about looking like George Clooney and with his quick wit he stated, “Linda thinks I am more handsome than George.” I was so honored to have shared my time and experiences with Greg. May God hold him close also comfort and bless his family.

  18. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Hansen family. He was quite a pleasure to be around at work and I could only imagine he was even more of a pleasure to be around for his loved ones. He is missed by many yet has been welcomed by even more.

  19. My deepest condolences go out to the Hansen family. I had the pleasure of working with Greg for a number of years at Abbott. I recall his positive attitude, engaging personality and how he treated everyone with respect. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
