The procession ended at Evergreen Memorial.

Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon for Ron Hansen. Mr Hansen passed away on November 5th at the age of 81.

He owned and operated Hansen’s Towing in Everett starting with one truck operating out of a gas station back in 1950. Over the years Hansen grew the business, training scores of tow truck drivers. He provided towing services in the City of Everett for six decades and also had companies in Marysville.

In his honor, a procession of more than two dozen tow trucks went from downtown Everett south on Broadway to the Evergreen Funeral Home for a memorial service and pot luck where friends and family paid tribute to Hansen.

Here are a few photos of the procession.
