He is survived by his parents, Norman and Jean Lutkefedder of Annapolis, two sisters: Kelly (John) Ursini of Spearfish, SD, and Laura Lutkefedder of Annapolis, and niece Gabriella Ursini of Spearfish, SD. Hans attended Chesapeake Montessori School, the Severn School, and Dickinson College, where he received a BS in Biology. He also received a Certificate in Business from Harvard Business School. He was raised as a member of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church where he was active in youth groups and served as an acolyte for many years.

Hans was a member of the Order of the Arrow and a Life Member of the National Eagle Scout Association. He participated in backpacking trips on the Appalachian Trail, and annual Cub Scout and Boy Scout camping trips in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
