Former Seagull Outfitters Owner Passes
Roger Hahn and his wife Debbie owned Seagull Outfitters when Mike and I first moved to the Gunflint Trail in 1993. When I first saw him I thought he was dressed for town or going somewhere special. I soon realized he always dressed impeccably, with a preference toward polo shirts and nice dress shorts. I have no clue how he managed to keep neat and clean as a canoe outfitter but somehow he always looked good. He was a kind and friendly man whose life ended too soon. May he rest in peace.
