Hansen, Richard A. (3 March 1932 - 19 May 2015) With Flag

Richard A. Hansen, 83, of Tomah died Tuesday, May 19, 2015, at the Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse.

He was born March 3, 1932, to William and Mathia (Minsaas) Hansen in Neillsville. He was united in marriage to Charlene A. Bryant. Richard proudly served his country as a member of the United States Army. He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing and collecting different rocks and gems. He was a member of the Driftless Area Gem and Mineral Club. He took a special liking to many types of animals, but his four-legged companion Stoney was his favorite. Although Richard wasn’t the type to wear his heart on his sleeve, his family was very important to him. He was an avid Packer fan, and also loved his NASCAR races.

He is survived by a son, Richard C. Hansen of Tomah; two daughters: Christina (Greg) Markin of Tomah and Kimberly (Hansen) Norton of Warrens; six grandchildren, Richard V. (Fiancée Kelsey) Hansen, Jeffrey (Jem) McGinnis, Denise (Titus) Day, Jesse Hansen, Jennifer and Samantha White; 10 great-grandchildren: Malachi, Mikenna, Mason, Eva and Elijah McGinnis; Hunter Bush, Roselyn, Aries, Josiah, and Charlena Day; nieces, nephews, many other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by Charlene Hansen and his parents.

Relatives and friends are invited for visitation Saturday, May 30, 2015, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sonnenburg Family Funeral Home, 801 E. Monowau St., in Tomah.
