Van Dyke's Supply and Cabela's has suffered a terrible loss . On Wednesday Oct 12 Our Director Jerry Hansen passed away very suddenly and unexpected following surgery on the 11th . Jerry was only 40 years old and is survived by his wife Lisa and daughter Lindsey and son Branden . I know a lot of you have met Jerry at the World and NTA Shows . He was one of the finest guy's I have ever known . He brought me to Van Dyke's and was always there for me . We spent a lot of time on the road together and pheasant hunting and just talking . I know we will continue on the way Jerry would want us to.
But I also know things will never be the same .
The Funeral will be Saturday at 11:00 am at the First United Methodist Church in Mitchell , South Dakota
