Obituary of Roy Hansen

Please share a memory of Roy to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Roy Ole Hansen was born on December 6, 1934, to John and Irma (Brockhoff) Hansen in Tracy, MN. He was raised on a farm north of Walnut Grove. He attended country school at District #40 and then graduated from Walnut Grove High School in 1953. From January 1953 to January 1956, Roy served in Army National Guard. On April 7, 1956, he married Lois Ann Saelens at Tracy, MN. The couple raised four children - Roy Jr., Richard, Robert, and Amy. Roy farmed north of Walnut Grove and drove truck until late 1969 and farmed until 1975. Roy and Lois moved back into Walnut Grove and he returned to driving truck where he loved seeing so much of God's country. He also worked road construction, worked at the Revere Walnut Grove Elevator, and drove a fertilizer truck for Harvestland Co-op. He was a member of American Legion Post 267 and St. Paul’s Catholic Church where he served as an usher. In Roy's younger years, he enjoyed bowling, hunting, and fishing. He liked visiting with friends at the Walnut Grove Legion and especially enjoyed sharing a good meal and a beer with his family. He became a resident of St. John Lutheran Home in Springfield in 2017. His days there were made brighter by the wonderful staff who he enjoyed teasing, especially the "Boss". He is survived by his sons - Roy Jr., Richard, Robert (Lynn) Hansen; daughter Amy Louise Hansen (Kurt Pemble); grandchildren - Christina, Stacey, Erica, Kelly, Kourtney, Morgan, Tyler, Aiden, Maria, Anne, Shelby, Roy III; and 11 great grandchildren. Roy was preceded in death by his parents John and Irma Hansen, wife Lois Hansen, and brother John (Patricia) Hansen.
