Andrew Hanson

August 3, 1961 — April 1, 2016

Andrew F. Hanson of Pelham Manor, New York passed away suddenly on April 1st, 2016. He was 54 years old. Born in Peoria, IL to John and Kathryn Hanson, he was one of four siblings when the family moved from the mid-west to Pelham Manor in 1971.

Andrew attended Iona Preparatory High School and would go on to receive his BA from Iona College in 1983. Although he loved the study of history, Andrew's talent was working with his hands. Creating a career in demolition and construction led him to be an unsung hero of 9/11. Working tirelessly for days on end after the attacks, Andrew was at Ground Zero and helped dig through the destruction to retrieve survivors or obtain closure for families of the missing.

Andrew is predeceased by his mother, Kathryn Hanson. He is survived by his father, John Hanson, Sr. and his siblings: John Hanson, Jr. of New Rochelle, Mark Hanson of Wilmington, North Carolina, and Linda (Hanson) Monaco of Westfield, New Jersey. He will be greatly missed by seven nieces and nephews.

There will be a Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 575 Fowler Avenue, Pelham Manor, New York on Tuesday, April 5th at 10:00 AM. A private family viewing will be held before the Mass at Pelham Funeral Home.
