​A reception will be held at O’Gara’s Bar & Grill, 164 N. Snelling Avenue, St. Paul, following the service.

Lofgren leaves behind his wife Monica and two children, ages 11 and 8. Therefore, a couple local folks have already begun funding mechanisms for Hanzee’s wife and children. They are:

  • The Lift Bridge Brewery has set up an educational fund to support Lofgren’s two children. Money raised will go to help with immediate financial needs and future educational expenses. Click here for more info.
  • A ‘Hundos For Hans’ event will be held at the Seventh Street Truck Park in St. Paul on Nov. 4. People are invited to drop a $100 bill in ‘Hans’ Fishbowl.” All the money raised will go to Lofgren’s wife Monica and his two children. Click here to access their Facebook Page.
