Douglas MacArthur Hanson, 77, of Nashua, died peacefully following a lengthy illness at Brigham and Women’s Hospital on February 12, 2019 with his family at his side.
He was born in Clinton, MA on July 1, 1942, a son of the late Joseph and Noel (Highfill) Hanson.
Mr. Hanson was the husband of Lorraine (Haigh) Hanson.

Besides his beloved and devoted wife, Lorraine, he is survived by his sons, Michael Hanson, Jeff Hanson and his wife, Kimberly and Brian Hanson; his adopted daughter Laura Stone; his grandchildren, Brenden Hanson, Austen Hanson, Nicholas Hanson; two great grandchildren, Kelsi Robarge and Willow Hanson; his nieces and nephews, Denise Hanson, Gail Connolly, Debbie Weeks, Herbie Gorham, Kevin Salmon, Brenda Hanson and Joe Hanson.

My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Doug.
May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted many who have experienced such a loss, is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.
