Disposition was by cremation at Grays West & Co. Pioneer Crematory. There will be a family gathering in his honor later.
Mr. Han was born Oct. 11, 1933, at Boise. He spent most of his growing-up years on the Oregon Coast at Lincoln City.

He met his wife, Loretta, at Lincoln City. They were married on Jan. 31, 1977. Although he loved to cook, when he came home he was more than happy to let Loretta cook the family meals. An avid hunter and fisherman, he loved being outdoors. He enjoyed the coastal mountains and streams and the ocean.
He was preceded in death by his son, Ronald Han.
