Obituary for Cliff

CLIFFORD ODEAN HANSEN was born on January 26, 1943 to Carl and Olga (Larson) Hansen in Luverne, Minnesota. He was raised on the family farm north of Luverne and attended school in Luverne, graduating high school in 1961. Following his education, he began an entry level job at Land ‘O Lakes in Luverne. He continued to work his way up in the company and eventually became the plant’s manager. Cliff moved on from the company after 35 years of service. On May 2, 1984, Cliff married Gloria Hansen in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Cliff began working for JBS in Pipestone, Minnesota and continued working there in maintenance for ten years. He retired in 2008. In 1988, Cliff and Gloria moved to their home on the lake in Lake Benton, Minnesota. During his retirement, Cliff kept busy attending auctions where he would then find golf carts and skidsteers that he would buy, repair, paint, overhaul and resell. There was never downtime in his life as Cliff was always busy with a project and could fix almost anything and made the best beef jerky that became a family favorite. During his time living on Lake Benton, Cliff enjoyed taking out the pontoon with family and a little bit of fishing.

On Saturday, December 24, 2022, Cliff died unexpectedly at the Avera Heart Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota at the age of 79 years, ten months and 28 days.

Cliff is survived by his wife, Gloria; three children, Karen (Stan) Van Wettering of Luverne, Gordie (Colette) Hansen of Luverne, and Adam (Tracy) Hansen of Luverne; three grandchildren, Derek (Stephanie) Van Wettering, and Lauren and Josh Hansen; one great-granddaughter, Lydia Van Wettering; three siblings, Ardie Bowen of Luverne, Viv Aarestad of Apple Valley, Minnesota, and Ray (Elaine) Hansen of Luverne; and other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Olga Hansen; and sister, Gloria Boelman.

Per Cliff's wishes, no public services will be held.
