Linton P. Hansen

Linton Peter Hansen was born October 25, 1960 and died April 13, 2023 at his home in Austin, Minnesota surrounded by his family.

Linton lived his entire life in Austin and was loved and cared for by many in the community. He especially enjoyed socializing at the B&J Bar and Grill where he had many friends that looked out for him (especially Sara Stilwell Moe).

Over the years, Linton had many different pets all of which he named Sammie. This was both simplifying and confusing. Either way, it was uncanny how every animal Linton encountered loved him. The latest Sammie was recently adopted by Linton’s favorite cousin, Corey Hansen.
