Eric Jon Hanson

Eric Jon Hanson lost his battle with cancer on November 7, 2015. He was only 62.

Eric is preceded in death by his parents, Hilding John and Sylvia Irene, and sister Sylvia Ann. He leaves behind his beloved daughter, Erin Joy; sisters Joyce and Elaine; and brothers Ron, Jerry and Mark. Eric was an extraordinarily gifted registered nurse who performed his job with compassion, humor and selflessness. Life in the emergency room at Valley View Hospital, Glenwood Springs, Colorado, won’t be the same without The Med Commander on duty. Eric loved to travel and will now continue that passion in his smoking hot body. RIP, beloved dad, brother, uncle and genuine friend. You are, and will be, missed.
