Howard Hanson with Bud Grant at Capitol Rally, St Paul, 1993

It is with much regret that I share the sad news of Howard Hanson passing away.

About 30 years ago at the Sportsman Show, I wasapproached by this enthusiastic gentleman handing out information regarding equal hunting and fishing rights. Howard spearheaded a movement that brought many people to testify at House and Senate hearings, boat parades, informational meetings, and events to bring awareness to the issues.

He was a founding member of PERM and a Board member since day one. Even with his failing health, Howard has made himself available right up to the end. I will miss his knowledge, input, and friendship.

PERM has lost a great pioneer member of our family. Please keep his wife Carol and family in your prayers as they go through this difficult time.

Howard Hanson’s obituary will be published in the Star Tribune on Sunday, July 15. Visitation will be held at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Hopkins at 10 am, Saturday, July 21st followed by a memorial service at 11 am. The church is located at 715 Minnetonka Mills Rd, Hopkins, MN 55343. Doug Douglas Meyenburg President, PERM
