Steven Michael Hanson, 59 LONG ISLAND -- Steven Michael (Mike) Hanson, 59, of Long Island, died as a result of a tragic accident at his home on Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014. Married for 35 years to his wife, Ena, who survives him, he is also survived by what he deemed his finest accomplishment, his son, Caleb. Mike was born in Portland, on Aug. 4, 1955 and grew up in the greater Portland area. He graduated from Portland High School in 1974 and enjoyed playing football for the Portland Bulldogs as #81. Mike was involved in the commercial fishing industry for most of his adult life, which eventually led him and his family to Long Island and its fishing community. Mike loved Long Island and its residents. He never missed an opportunity to give visiting guests a tour of the island. Mike also loved to play horseshoes and his other interests included the many Long Island buoy toss competitions (planned or unplanned, day or night), hunting, and cooking his award winning chowder and famous fried fish. Mike believed every day you are alive is a special occasion. Being with Mike was always enjoyable and often an opportunity for adventure. Mike took his fashion cues from no one. However, his sometimes rough exterior was surpassed by his heart's extraordinary capacity to show generosity, kindness and interest in helping others, especially those less fortunate. Mike took great pride in helping to raise thousands of dollars for the kids in the Adirondack Mountains, New York, to buy coats and boots for their harsh winters. Mike will be remembered for being an exceptionally strong and hard worker for the benefit of his family as well as his steadfast commitment to the principles of loyalty, honesty and fairness. Mike is also survived by his mother, Barbara Hanson , of South Portland, his father, Donald Hanson, and his wife, Beverly, of Dunedin, Fla.; his mother-in-law , Iris Carr, of Cape Elizabeth; his sister, Wanda Hanson , of South Portland, his sister, Debbie Carr, and her husband, Andrew, of Cape Elizabeth, his brother, Chris Hanson, and his wife, Rhonda, of Old Orchard Beach, and many nieces, nephews and several special people that considered him their 'Uncle Mike', as well as countless close friends whom he held dear to his heart. A celebration of life will be held at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 30, at Hobbs Funeral Home, 230 Cottage Rd., South Portland. Condolences to the family may be expressed online at www.hobbsfuneralhome.com . In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Mike's memory to: Changing Tide 772 Island Avenue Long Island, Maine 04050 Steven Michael Hanson
