Curt was born August 11, 1951 to Robert and Marge (Benson) Hansen. He graduated from Milroy High School in 1969. Curt was united in marriage to Dawn McCoy October 21, 1972. Together they had two children Chad and Brandi. Curt spent 30 years of his life as a co-owner of Wood Lake Lumber. He retired in 2012 and spent his time as a handy man in town. He would fix anything for a pan of bars. He absolutely loved his community, almost as much as he loved his family and spending time with his grandkids. He enjoyed playing fast-pitch softball, was an avid golfer (or at least he thought he was) and loved hunting with his friends and family. Curt’s stories about the good-old days are legendary, just ask his grand-kids. He was an active member of the Wood Lake Fire Department and a member of the Sportsman’s Club. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and the community he loved.
Curt is survived by his wife of 47 years Dawn; son Chad, wife Sally, and granddaughter Tarin Hansen of Corcoran; his daughter Brandi, husband Jeremy, and grandsons Beck and Evan Hagen of Golden Valley; many loving brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents and niece Fallon Hansen.
