Raymond L. Hanson, 92, Minot and longtime Carpio Township farmer, died Tuesday, October 4, 2022, in a Minot assisted living facility.

Raymond was born November 21, 1929, in Carpio, ND to Christian and Barbara (Arnegard) Hanson. He was raised and educated in the Carpio-Hartland area. He assisted his family with the daily operation of the farm located southwest of Carpio, ND during his youth.

Raymond enlisted into the US Air Force on November 29, 1950 serving his country honorably, while stationed at bases throughout the US and Korea, until his discharge on November 28, 1954.

Raymond was united in marriage to Annabelle ‘Ann’ Weger on October 22, 1955 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. They returned to the family farm and spent the next 50 years of their lives working the land, producing small grains and were blessed with two children. Ray never truly retired and was part of harvest in 2021, running the combine at age 91. They moved to Minot in 1996 and wintered in Arizona for several years. Ann passed away March 16, 2015.

Raymond was a former member of Hartland Lutheran Church and Carpio Lutheran Church and now is a member of Bread of Life Lutheran Church, Minot. He served on the Carpio Township and Minot Farmers Union Elevator Boards during his active years and also maintained memberships to the American Legion, Moose Lodge and Eagles Aerie, all of Minot.

Raymond enjoyed the outdoors, hunting and fishing with family and friends in his spare time. He also valued time spent traveling with his family and was known to be quite the mechanic. Raymond will be remembered for his gentle smile and taking the time to have a cup of coffee and a visit with family and friends. He will be missed by all who were blessed to share in his life.

Raymond is survived by his children Christ (Lori) Hanson, Stanley, ND and Cheryl (Scott) Newcomb, Minot; grandchildren Jacob (fiancé Breanna Benjamin) Hanson, John Newcomb and David Newcomb along with numerous nieces and nephews.
