Robert Jon Hansen, age 62, passed away on March 27, 2021 at the Ladysmith Nursing Home where he had been residing since March of 2020 due to serious health complications after triple bypass surgery on January 29,2020.
Bob was born on August 21, 1958 to Robert and Dorothy Hansen in Chippewa Falls, WI. He grew up in Bloomer, WI at the Twi-Lite Motel, built by his parents. He attended Bloomer schools and graduated from Bloomer High School. He then attended CVTC for electronics where he received the knowledge to start his own side business, RJH Electronics installing many CB radios, cruise controls and putting up many TV antennas. He worked for many years with his father in the Hansen painting business. After his father’s retirement, Bob started his own business, Robert Hansen Painting. He took so much pride in all the work he did and met so many great people along the way. He was able to continue the special bond he had with his nephew Alex by having him work with him. The last three years of his business were spent working with his pride and joy, Cole. He taught both of them many things about the trade that would help them later in life but they both decided they would further their education to find a career they would enjoy.
Bob met Cindy Weissinger in 1982 and they were married on August 18, 2000.

Bob is survived by his wife, Cindy and his son, Cole. He is further survived by his brothers Richard and Russell Hansen, his sisters Nancy Smith, Dianne Vergos, and Ava (Ted) Fisher, his mother-in-law, Judy Weissinger, sisters in law, Kathy (Tom) Szalajka, Shelly (David) Lane, and Heidi (Jamie Keller), many nieces, including his god daughter, Jordyn Keller, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his beautiful daughters, parents, his father-in-law Bernard Weissinger, brothers-in-law Charles Weissinger and Clyde Smith and grandparents.
He was a member of the Moose, Bloomer Rod and Gun, and Whitetails. For many years Bob loved to shoot trap in the summer and shoot pool in the winter. He enjoyed many road trips and many vacations, short or long with all of his great friends. Bob enjoyed life to the fullest. The proudest moments where when he could watch Cole play baseball. He enjoyed so many wonderful times with the baseball families that still remain great friends.
