Roland Duane Hanson of Canton, Minn., passed away on Friday June 20, 2014 at Gundersen Medical Center La Crosse Wis.

Roland was born on May 5, 1931 to Halfdan and Dora (Bucholz) Hanson at the Eggebrooten farm 1mile north of Canton and spent most of his youth on the Hanson family farm 1.5 miles north of Canton before his family moved to Canton. Roland graduated from Canton High School in 1949.

Roland and Carole Schneekloth were married on February 24, 1956 at the Presbyterian Church in Canton and made their home in Canton.

Roland served in the army from 1952-1954 and was stationed in France for part of his service.

Roland owned and operated Roland Hanson Milk Hauler and hauled milk in the area for 24 years. He then was employed by Prosper Lumber Company for 24 years. In retirement he worked as a farm laborer always enjoying planting and harvesting the crops
