Honoring the Life of Caesar Hanson Caesar Hanson (47) was born on Friday, October 6, 1972, in Peoria, IL. He moved to Milwaukee, WI, and 
received his formal education at Alexander Hamilton High School. He worked for several years as a Dietary Aide for Milwaukee County. As a young boy, he loved to play baseball with Beckum Stapleton Little League with his big brother, Larry. Caesar enjoyed the simple pleasures of life like coffee – no cream, just sugar, binge-watching
Law and Order: SVU, and bumping Tupac – any album, any song, a straight lyrical flow. There was never a dull moment as Caesar had a unique, comedic perspective on the world and would keep us all entertained, laughing at one of his many raunchy jokes. Caesar to some, Dad to others, and Uncle CC to many...he was simply a joy to all our lives. Family and friends (that eventually became family) meant everything to Caesar and he will be missed by us all. Caesar departed this earthly life on Friday, June 5, 2020. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Jimmie and Hattie Hanson and Eugene and Jeraldine Stenson all of Peoria, IL, and his brother (best friend) Larry Montel Hanson of Milwaukee, WI. Caesar is survived by his father, Caesar Stenson Sr. of Peoria, IL; mother, Diane Hanson of Milwaukee, WI; sisters Tawon (Gene) Ferguson and Willnette (Kevin) Honey, both of Milwaukee, WI, and Mia Wilson and Scotia (Perry) Irvin, both of Peoria, IL. His love will forever be remembered and cherished by his children, Ashley Hanson, Caesar Hanson Jr., 
Anntwonette Hanson, Cassius Hanson, and Alivia Hanson, all of Milwaukee, WI; and a host of nieces,
nephews, cousins, and friends. May Caesar rest in peace as he follows his path to Heaven.

  2. Caesar Hanson was a blessing to know during my short time with him. Despite his challenges and battles in his life, he was a joy to know. He was on the path of a more promising life, and was wanting to live his life to the fullest.
