Stafford O. Hansen, age 75, of Spring Valley, Minn., passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, Tuesday afternoon, November 25, 2014, at Cottagewood in Rochester after a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Stafford Owen Hansen was born on June 1, 1939, in St. Paul, the son of Cyrus Owen Hansen, M.D. and Gladys Helen (Benson) Hansen. He was raised in South Minneapolis and attended Breck Academy, graduating in 1957. After graduation from high school he attended Grinnell College and then graduated from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Stafford met Loretta Kay Landy at the Red Owl grocery store on Cedar Avenue and were later married September 16, 1961, at Visitation Catholic Church in Minneapolis. The couple began their life together in Minneapolis and then moved to Farmington where they purchased a Red Owl store. In 1966 they moved to Spring Valley purchasing the local Red Owl store. In the early 70’s they built Hansen’s Red Owl where the public library stands now. They enjoyed operating it as a family until they sold it in 1979. Since that time he had worked in real estate, insurance, the lumber business and as the dairy manager for Don’s IGA.

Stafford served as an elected member of the Spring Valley School Board and as a Fillmore County Commissioner. In his youth he was a member of Torquers Car Club and later was an active member of St. Ignatius Catholic Church, the Kiwanis Club of Spring Valley, the Spring Valley Garden Club, Brave Community Theatre and the Spring Valley Chamber of Commerce. He was an avid bicyclist who loved riding with his friends and family and participated in RAGBRAI with the team Loons, Jim Klobuchar’s Ride Minnesota, Iron Man, St. Paul Bike Classic, MS 150 and on the Root River Trail system. He loved skiing with his family, woodworking, taking long walks near his home, working in his numerous flower gardens and playing bridge with the local group for over 30 years.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Loretta; five children: Matthew (Ann) of Eden Prairie, Christopher of Spring Valley, Daniel of Spring Valley, Benjamin (Doreen) of Cosmos and Ann (Christopher) Priebe of Spring Valley; 18 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; two sisters, Roxanne Hardy of Mahtomedi and Christine Scarlett of St. Paul; and one brother, Dean (Barbara) Hansen of Stillwater. He was preceded in death by his parents; and two brothers-in-law, Al Hardy and Gene Wyttenback.
