Oliver Glen Hanson

August 27, 1948 – January 5, 2014

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Oliver Glen Hanson announces his passing on January 5, 2014 in his home at Salmon Arm, BC. He will be dearly missed by his surviving sister, Lila (Conrad) Mickelson, 15 nieces and nephews, and brother-in-law Vernon Law.

Oliver grew up in Archerwill, SK, and after high school moved to BC where he worked for Parks Canada for 30 years, living at Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park. While there, he really enjoyed his adventures hiking, fishing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. He retired to Salmon Arm in 1998. In retirement, he enjoyed living in Salmon Arm, travelling to visit family and friends in the western provinces, and was an avid reader.

He was predeceased by his mother and father, Gina and Oscar Hanson, sisters Elaine Murias and Goldie Law, and brother-in-law Stanley Murias. A memorial service and interment will be held this summer in Saskatchewan.
