Roger was born on November 3, 1942, to Arnold and Myrtle (Okerson) Hanson in Garrison, ND. He was raised on the family farm and graduated from the Garrison High School in 1960. After graduation, Roger started with Custom Combining and worked at the missile base in Minot, ND. Roger went to work for Lindteigen Construction. Roger married LaVera Nulph on February 12, 1963, and to that union, three children were born, Randy, Karla, and Rodney. In 1972, Roger moved his family to Lead to work for the Homestake Mining Company and later moved to Deadwood. Roger worked for Homestake until 1998. From 1998 to 2001 he worked for Werner Trucking.

So sorry to hear of Roger's passing. I was surprised by the first photo that popped up on his obituary where he is holding that big fish. It was taken at Angell's Fishing Resort in Denare Beach, Sask. Canada at Lake Amisk when Roger went on a fishing trip with my husband, Don Helm, and another friend, Roger Hunt. They had such a good time and caught a lot of fish. They were there on September 17-21, 1994. Good memories.
Prayers for all of the family as you grieve the loss of cousin, Roger. May God comfort you at this sad time.
Love, Beverly (Zwicker) Helm
