Hanson was a father of two children, 2-year-old Graham and 5-month-old Maren, and also leaves behind his fiancée Rachel, according to a GoFundMe fundraiser.

"The loss of this young, bright life has left all who knew him in shock," the page says. "Everything has changed - for none more so than the sweet little family Alan built."

The fundraiser has so far raised just over $9,000, which will help with the funeral costs and living expenses for his family.
