Lorna and Ken celebrated their 50th anniversary on Oct. 19, 2007, surrounded by family and friends.

- Tony Hansen, our rebellious angel, received his wings on November 15, 2014, just shy of his 80th birthday, to be with his beautiful and precious wife, Anna Lise, grandson Christopher and many other friends and relatives. Our Dad was a crazy trouble maker who didn't like rules. He was an amazing friend to all and would do anything for them. He was very smart and very creative and also could remember things like they were yesterday. He was an awesome welder and blacksmith. I'm sure there are a number of farmers in the Pilot Butte area that can say they have had a weld done by Tony. Dad was a hardworking man all his life and started working at a very young age as a blacksmith in Denmark, then worked as a farm hand and went into construction as an instrument fitter when he moved to Canada. Dad was born in Denmark on December 14, 1934 and moved to Canada in 1957 with his wife, Anna Lise and son Kien. Dad is survived by his son Kien (Gloria), grandchildren Shane (great granddaughter Emma) and Noel; daughter Lolita Vansteelandt (Ed), grandchildren Kirsten, Shae, Levi and daughter Tanja (Kevin). He also has family residing in Denmark. This sums up how dad lived life: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, wine in one hand, beer in the other, body totally worn out and screaming "WHOO HOO what a ride!" There will be a Graveside Service at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at the Pilot Butte Cemetery.
