April 2015 – Member of the Month!

Tom Hansen
April 2015 – Member of the Month!

I was born in Cleveland, Ohio of Danish parents and learned to walk on a small ranch in Riverside, California. We moved into the Los Angeles area when I was 10 and settled in Monterey Park. I graduated high school in 1960.

I spent some misdirected time until drafted in the Army in 1966 and am proud to have served my country. I attended college after the service (thank you GI Bill) and graduated from USC in 1972. I married the love of my life, Linda, in 1977 and we eventually moved to Durango, Colorado and spent 7 years in that beautiful spot. We made some life-long friends there who we still see often each year. My Durango time was spent in underground coal mining and manufacturing although I had a BS in business and had spent an early career in public accounting and banking.

Linda and I moved back to California in 1986 and spent the remainder of our work life in finance. The last 13 years of my career was as chief financial officer with a specialty lender headquartered in Sherman Oaks.

We both retired and moved to the Central Coast in 2003 after visiting Linda’s high school classmates who had moved here. We have spent 11 plus great years in Creston.

Tom and Linda Hansen

Linda and I share a wonderful daughter, Julie, who lives in Palos Verdes with her husband and our two grandchildren. Linda and I enjoy RV trips, our longhorns and doing community projects. I am a so so fisherman and avid outdoor cook and firearms enthusiast. My quiet times are the gym and the firing range. Both are great mental breaks for me.

Linda and I have been involved in numerous Creston activities most notably the Creston Classic Rodeo. I served as President for 3 years and on the Board of Directors for 7.  Linda and I were both honored as Grand Marshalls in 2006. SLST has been a major supporter of this event and we are most grateful for their participation.

I started my serious workout routine in 1990 and have been a member of many fitness clubs. I joined SLST in 2006, spent a stint in rehab at SLST following a tendon repair in my knee and have continued my fitness routine here. It must be working as I am still standing, mobile and strong at 72. The staff at SLST are a continuous source of encouragement and advice to keep me on track. I start each day, Monday through Friday, with a cardio and weight training routine at SLST in Paso.  What a joy to spend time with friends staying fit. Thank you, SLST!!
