This is the obituary his family wrote and wanted in the paper. To honor our request, here it is.
Age 71, of Savage, Steve passed away unexpectedly at home of a heart attack on February 1, 2017. Steve was a good man, had a great sense of humor and quick wit, loved music, was always busy working on projects around the house or yard, working on cars, or helping out neighbors. There was nothing he couldn’t build or fix. The only two things he couldn’t do were dance and cook. He loved spending time on the North Shore of Lake Superior and staying in log cabins. He lived life to the fullest. He is survived by his last toy, his 1950 Oldsmobile. He always said, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” He was a lifetime car enthusiast and a member of MSRA. When younger, he competed in SCCA road course racing and NHRA drag racing. He attended Fullerton College in California, served in the Army, and spent 1 year, 3 months, and 8 days in Vietnam (not that he was counting). He worked as Director of Buildings and Grounds for the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District for 21 years, retiring in 2000. He went back to school at DCTC and started a landscaping company. He finally achieved retirement in 2008. Preceded in death by parents, Clarence and Eileen (Cadlo) Hansen. Survived by and will be deeply missed by his loving family; wife of 30 years, Evonne; son Bryan; daughters Kris Luedtke (Brian Schutte); Kari (Tim) Groth; Kathy (Matt) Ericksen; Kelly (Eric) McMillan; grandchildren, Cassidy, Abigail, Gabrielle, Cody, Cailey; great-grandson, Maddox; sisters Barbara (Jim) Morris; Sharon (Danny) Albritton; brother Jerry (Jan) Hansen; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. To honor Steve’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. He will be laid to rest at Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis. A Celebration of Steve’s Life is being planned.
