- About Us
Bruce Merrit Hanson passed away on June 12, 2019 at the Altru Hospital in Grand Forks, ND. Bruce was born on August 3, 1952 in Roseau, MN to Carl P. and Lois Mae (Stanley) Hanson. The family moved back to the area where Bruce attended the Hagen School until the 8th grade. He graduated from Baudette High School in 1970 at the age of 17, and then headed to Indianapolis to work for a few years with his brother Stephen. He later returned home and began working at the local pharmaceutical company as a maintenance man who could fix any machine that went down. After many years of service there, Bruce retired: just to be put to work even harder, building and fixing things for his family. He was affectionately known as Huston……….” Huston, we have a problem”.
Bruce is survived by his siblings, Wayne (Lesa) Hanson, Ellen (Greg) Gross, Mark (DeVonna) Hanson, Paul Hanson; sister-in-law, Karen Hanson plus many nieces, nephews and grafted in grand-kids.
He was preceded in death by his father, mother and brother, Stephen.
At his request, Bruce did not want a funeral. Bruce was a very private man but those he cared about, he cared for.
Condolences may be sent to Mark Hanson at this time.
