He was found dead on February 8, 1991, at the home of a friend in Rehoboth Beach, Del. He was 55 years old and lived in Washington. Hansen took his life by inhaling carbon monoxide from his car, the police in Rehoboth Beach said. Colleagues at Johns Hopkins, where Hansen had taught for 15 years, said he had a severe back ailment that had required major operations. A brief obituary appeared in The New York Times, but a longer one appeared in The Blade, a gay Washington paper. Not one of his college friends had suspected his homosexuality, and his biographer was unable to give a reason why Denny killed himself.[2]
