Sammy Earl Hanson 77 of Highlands, Texas went to be with the Lord on October 19, 2018 after a brief illness.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Judy Hanson, son Danny E Hanson and wife Shana. Grandchildren Ryan Hanson, Haley Hanson, Summer Hanson and great grandson Jase Taylor Hanson, step granddaughter Haley Boone and a host of family and friends.
Sammy was a strong willed person and very hard worker. Give him a welding machine and a piece of steel and he could build anything. He enjoyed gardening, hunting and fishing with his best friend, his son, Danny. He also enjoyed restoring old cars. Sammy was a very kind and caring person and will be greatly missed, especially by the love of his life, Judy. He met her when she was 16 and they have been married 52 years.
He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and was very proud of the way they have grown up and became loving and caring adults. His faithful companion, Murphy, was constantly by his side and he is already missing his “daddy”
