Hanson StevenHANSON, Steven Robert  -   Dr. Steven Robert Hanson, 63, of Toronto, Ontario, passed away peacefully on March 19, 2023, surrounded by his family and close friends.


Steven was born on June 10, 1959, to Robert and Elsie Hanson in Windsor, ON.


After graduating from Walkerville High School in 1973, he began a fulfilling journey in academia, culminating in a Doctor of Ministry/Church Administration degree from the University of Toronto, Victoria University.


Steve worked as Director of Administration at the Metropolitan United Church for ten years before his health concerns required him to retire; he was Director of Operations at Campus Co-operative Residence for 3 years, and Church Administrator at Trinity St. Paul's United for 11.5 years.

Steve loved his mission-based work and built caring relationships with staff and his colleagues. He was dedicated to the principles of client-driven care and community, and he continued advocating for such during his time at Chartwell Retirement Centre where he lived his last 5.5 years.


In spite of his diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis in 2013, Steven remained positive, optimistic and social. He was kind and compassionate, and made friends everywhere he went.


He will be deeply missed by his family and friends from all walks, including his wonderful care workers. His legacy of positivity, kindness, curiosity, hope and perseverance will continue to inspire us all.


Steve is survived by his children, Brianna and Rachel Hanson, and their mother, Sheryl Parks; his siblings, Louise, David and Philip Hanson; and by several nieces and nephews he loved deeply.


Memorial donations may be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada or to The Centre for Independent Living in Toronto (C.I.L.T.) Inc.


A Celebration of Life drop-in will be held on March 25, 2023, from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. at Steven's sister's house in Ajax.
