David G. Hanson
June 25, 2016
David Gordon Hanson, “Lars” age 74 of Austin, Minnesota passed away surrounded by his family on Saturday, June 25, 2016. Born in Austin on November 11, 1941 to Clarence and Violet (Beck) Hanson, David graduated from Austin High in 1959 and was a lifelong resident of Spam City.
He was employed by American Can Company in Austin for most of the 70’s and 80’s and eventually retired from the US Postal Service in 2003 after 23 years of service. The game of Basketball was his true passion, be it playing, coaching, reffing, or collecting memorabilia. Though he was known for his extensive collection, and uncanny knowledge of trivia, what he enjoyed most was watching his grandchildren play basketball or any other sport.
David was a loving father and grandfather. He was preceded in death by his parents Clarence and Violet Hanson. David is survived by his children Tamara (Paul) Pulis, Tim (Tammie) Hanson; grandchildren Cole, Grayson, Dalton and Logan Pulis; Jake, Zach and Christina Hanson; brother Steven Hanson.
A Memorial Service was held 11 A.M., Thursday, June 30, 2016 at the Crane Chapel, 1111 9th Street NE, Austin, MN.
