After graduating he attended Yankton College and Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. Following college, he married Janet Koobs on June 6th, 1958, and from that union they had two sons, Brian and Brad Hanson. From there, he joined the US Army and served in Leavenworth, KS. He went on to work as a farm equipment salesman at M&W Gear Co. for over 30 years. On January 20, 1978 he married Sharon Weber and they would have been married for 42 years. After working as a salesman for 30 years he went on to become an independent salesman selling scooters, lawn mowers as well as kiddie rides that were placed in various malls. Roger had the gift of gabbing along with his talents of cooking and baking. He loved to share his baked goods with others.

He took pride in the farm he was raised on in Mission Hill. Each year he would decorate and hang lights for his mother over the holidays.

He also had a special place for his family and made them a priority. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Hanson, two sons, Brian (Luann) Hanson, Brad Hanson, two step-daughters, Stef Bones, Stacy (Dale) Hotchkin. His grandchildren, Josh (Tiffany) Hanson, Lacey (Greg) Nelson, Bethanie (Sayre) Bedinger, Braydon Hanson, Kaitlan Hanson, Brittany Hanson.

I have so many good memories of family gatherings at the farm. Roger was always sharing a good joke or telling a story. His big smile & bigger laugh will forever make me smile when I think of those happy days! Dad & Ruth enjoyed doing lots of projects with Roger & Sharon besides boating. We are praying for you, Sharon, the boys & their families, plus Milan, LaRue and your families. He loved us all well. God be with you and give you strength! Jodi Hanson Slyter, Gordon Slyter & family.
