Title A Self-Made Man
Description legal advisor for a number of years, writing many letters which helped his native countrymen to come to the United States. He assisted others in getting money, which they had left in Denmark, returned to them. A New York based Insurance Agency recognized him for 25 years as a policy writer for fire insurance. He was Registrar for the Selective Service during World War I. Two of his sons, Edward M. and Robert E., served their country during that conflict. In addition to raising his own large family, he raised two foster daughters, and also opened his home to others when a need arose. During one summer there were eighteen people living under his roof. His children and grand-children consistently spoke of him as a kind, loving and helpful father and grandfather. Hans Christian was a man of noble character, who believed in and lived the Golden Rule. He would not knowingly harm anyone, and treated everyone the same. He tried hard to do his duty under all circumstances and was loved and respected by his friends and neighbors in return. Hans was not a public speaker, but spoke eloquent sermons with his soft-spoken, quiet manner of doing things. This man and his wife lived to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. Their two daughters and six sons honored them on that occasion with an Open House held at their home. At the time of his death at age 79. he was serving as the Secretary of his High Priest Quorum. One of the speakers at his well-attended funeral, described him as "a big man in a little town"; another said, "If Hans had been given a chance, he would have been one of the fairest judges in the land." Yes, Hans Christian Hansen-Bogh was a big man in a little town, and by doing his little bit in his own quiet, unassuming way, he made a big difference in Sanpete County.
