Allan Payne Hansberger (“Al”) passed away peacefully on October 25,
2022. He was 98 years old (September 19, 1924) and a resident of St.
Charles, Illinois and Borrego Springs, California. Born in Worthington
Minnesota to Floyd and Edythe, Al was one of six children. His parents
eventually moved the family farm to Dawson, Minnesota where Al met his
wife of 65 years, Beverly Saltness. Bev passed away in 2015.

After serving for two years in the Army Air Force during WWII and some
college, Al moved to Chicago to join his older brother William “Lyle”
Hansberger in the golf club manufacturing business which was later named
Ram Golf and was the family business for more than four decades. Al
traveled the world for business and played golf with pros and
celebrities alike, including President Gerald Ford. But he always found
time for his family.

Al was hardworking, generous, kind, and had a quiet way of connecting
with people. He and Bev supported many charities including the Kids Golf
Foundation, the Campaign for Equal Justice, and the Boys and Girls Club
in Borrego Springs.
Al’s pride and joy were his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He
is survived by his brother Jim (Paola); son Gary (Elburn, IL and Rancho
Mirage, CA; Dianne); daughter Sandra (Portland, OR and Borrego Springs,
CA; David Barr). He leaves behind grandchildren Adam (Daisy), Alex
(Julia), Ashleigh (Sunny), Michael; and great grandchildren, William,
Ian, Max, Wyatt and Betsy.

A memorial service to honor both Al and Bev is being planned for the
Spring of 2023. At Al’s request, in lieu of flowers, please consider a
donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Borrego Springs, PO Box 1051,
Borrego Springs, CA 92004.
