KENNETH CAMILE HANSEN
June 7, 1936 September 18, 1987
Kenneth Camile Hansen was born in St. Thomas on June 7. 1936 to
Golda Viola Hall and the late Jens Christian Hansen. He grew up in the
Kenneth was educated in the public school system, attending Dober
Elementary and Charlotte Amalie High School. He volunteered for the
U.S. Army on January 13, 1954 and was inducted in Puerto Rico. His tour
of duty took him to Fort Dix, New Jersey; Spokane, Washington; Fort Castle,
California and Weisbaden, Germany. He quickly rose in rank from private to
sergeant, and also served as a training NCO, Troop Information NCO,
Reenlistment NCO and Radar Operator.
On June 7, 1957, Kenneth and Velisa Barry were united in marriage and
from this union came five children.
Upon returning to St. Thomas, Kenneth was first employed at Caribbean
Atlantic Airlines (Caribair) as a ticket agent and later as shipping clerk at Alcoa
Steamship Company until that operation was phased out. Then, in 1966,
he joined the Government Service as an Internal Revenue trainee in the
Delinquent Accounts branch of the Tax Division (now Bureau of Internal
Revenue). With an eye towards advancing his career, he attended several
management training seminars and earned credits towards an AA degree
in accounting at the University of the Virgin Islands. At the time of his
demise he was chief of the Delinquent Accounts branch.
Kenneth served the Lutheran Parish for several terms as an elected member
of the school board.
An avid sports fan, he also participated as a member/player of both
the Dukes Club Baseball Team and the Victory Jacks Softball Team.
Kenneth was known to be very soft-spoken and of a quiet disposition.
On September 18, 1987, after a brief illness, he died at the St. Thomas
Hospital. We wonder why so suddenly? But our Creator, who gives the gift
of life and compassion, knows best and in Him we must place our trust.
May he rest in peace.

A Man ofLittle Words
No one really knew his mind. He spoke just what had to be said. Everyone
respected and liked Kenneth. He was truly a devoted husband and father.
So He Lived; So He Died
This cliche has been found to be quite true in many if not all cases. But
today, we can say that Kenneth was a living example of these words. Kenneth
walked this earth quietly and peacefully. In like manner, he departed this
From "Death" man can learn many things. We are reminded to give God
thanks and praise daily. We the living must also begin to make preparation
to live for Christ. For not one of us knows the hour when we will be called
To Muddie, your son has been taken away. But do remember that God
gave us His Son, so that we can live and have life abundantly.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we
may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
