Gary A. Hansen

Gary A. Hansen

Gary passed peacefully on July 28, 2018 at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, MN after many years of disabling illness.

He survived the battles of TET and the tunnels in Vietnam, returning home with a Bronze Star and deciding that "it was always a great day when you weren't being shot at". He was first a dairy farmer and than logged millions of miles as a skilled semi driver with an exemplary record. He lived his vow to laugh and learn every day.

Gary is survived by wife, Terry; children Nichole (Craig Kollman), Michael Hansen, Jessica (Don) Bos, and Shane (Rose) Jones; grandchildren Riley Kollman, Emma Kollman, Trent Jones, and Luke Jandl.

A Celebration of Life will be held from 1-4 PM on Sept. 15 at the Prescott American Legion, 710 Pearl Street, with an Honor Guard ceremony at 4:30 in the Pine Glen Cemetery, also in Prescott, WI.
