Linscott R. "Lin" Hanson, Omicron '59

Message from the Board of Directors of DKE International

DKE International is sad to announce the death of Brother Linscott R. ("Lin") Hanson, Omicron '59. Lin passed away on Tuesday, July 23rd. He attended the University of Michigan as an undergraduate and also received his law degree from there.

Lin played a substantial role in leading the fraternity over the past several years, first as a member of the Board of Directors, then later as President of the Rampant Lion Foundation. He dedicated a very substantial number of volunteer hours to DKE, combining his legal skills (he practiced law for over five decades), business acumen, and love for DKE to become an extremely valuable part of the leadership team. More than that, though, he became a true friend to so many of us.

He never sought the limelight or any recognition for the critical role he played in the success of the fraternity and foundation in recent years, preferring instead to focus on achieving results. He had a deep interest in developing mentoring programs through the Rampant Lion Foundation.

We'll remember Lin for his enormous contributions to DKE's progress over the past few years, but also for his small personal touches of friendship and his good cheer and devotion to DKE.

Brother Lin, Rest in Peace.
