Allan Hansen passed away in a car crash Friday.

   A Habersham County man died tragically Friday in a car crash, leaving behind a loving wife and family. Allan Lee Hansen, 22, of Clarkesville was driving south on Cannon Bridge Road on Friday afternoon when his Jeep Wrangler traveled off the west shoulder, struck a driveway culvert and overturned.

   Hansen, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected and killed, according to a Georgia State Patrol report.

   Hansen enjoyed fishing, hunting, entertaining others, and his dog Milo, according to his obituary. He is survived by several family members, including his wife Lexie Hansen of Clarkesville and his mother Patricia Hansen of Demorest.
   “Allan was my best friend. We did so much together and he never met a stranger,” Lexie said Tuesday. “Allan was the funniest, sweetest soul and I am so thankful God chose me to be his wife. There’s so much about him I could say but he was honestly just a angel on earth. He will never ever be forgotten.”

   His mother-in-law Melissa Allen is a coordinator at Helping Hands Ministries, a philanthropic group based in Tallulah Falls. Helping Hands posted a message and a link to the Allan Hansen Memorial Fund (http://bit.ly/allanhansenmemorialfund) on Facebook.

   “Allan and Lexie Hansen celebrated their one-year anniversary in September. High school sweethearts who loved the Lord,” the post read. “God decided to call Allan home on Friday, November 29th. It’s easy to be thankful at a time of thanksgiving but it’s difficult to be thankful when faced with tragedy.”

   Helping Hands asked for support for Lexie Hansen by donating to help with expenses. “No amount of money can replace Allan but it will help Lexie lay her sweet husband to rest without the worry of financial implications,” the post read.
