Roland Emory Hansel, 75, or your may have known him as Gano, Boise, Sonny or Uncle, of Guttenberg passed away Monday, July 30, 2018, at his farm on Miners Creek.

Roland then attended Guttenberg Public School, graduating in 1961. He worked at various places in Guttenberg, including Hilton Homes and Products Unlimited, along with pursuing his lifelong passion of farming.
