BRIGHAM CITY - Ted V. Hansen, 56, our loving father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, and friend, passed away on Friday, October 31, 2014 at the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our hearts are broken to lose such a wonderful man. Ted was born to Lee O. and Donna Barker Hansen on November 17, 1957 in Brigham City, Utah. Brigham City was his hometown: he attended elementary school and middle school there and was always proud to be a Box Elder Bee where he graduated with the class of 1976. He had many lasting friendships from his youth in Brigham City and he cherished every one of them. He married Nancy Wallace on September 13, 1979 in Ogden, Utah. They made their home in Tremonton where they had two children, Tiffani and Riley. Ted and Nancy later divorced, but remained friends. Ted’s life for many years revolved around Tiff and Riley. He selflessly supported them in every pursuit. Ted’s greatest joys and memories came from the time he spent with his family and he never tired of telling them how much he loved them and how much they meant to him. Beyond his family, Ted was a friend to all. He treasured and loved his friends. For much of his life, Ted was employed at Thiokol and ATK, where he made many friends and enjoyed his work. More recently, he was currently working in Quality Assurance at Autoliv in Brigham City. Many words come to mind when thinking of Ted: genuine, sincere, empathetic, patriotic, selfless, kind, giving, welcoming, friendly, sentimental, hardworking, handyman, organized, athletic, outdoorsman, loveable, clean, flirtatious, nonjudgmental, respectful, personable, happy, the life of the party, helpful, playful, complimentary, loyal, thankful, Christlike. Ted had many loves in this life: his children; his grandchildren; his extended family; pheasant hunting with Riley and their dogs; golfing; snow skiing at Beaver Mountain; good music; fly fishing; and of course the time he spent at “the Cabin” in Blacksmith Fork Canyon. He no doubt loved the Cabin more than his family could know. It was a special place to him. A sacred place. A legacy. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Ted had a firm faith in God and our Savior Jesus Christ and he knew the value of prayer. Ted is survived by his two children: Tiffani (Josh) Sundloff, Kaysville; Riley (Ashley) Hansen, Garland; five grandchildren and a “button” on the way; his mother, Donna B. Hansen, Brigham City; three siblings: Donalie (Marlin) Bodily, Brigham City; Janet (Steve) Hansen, Kaysville; Dean (Vicki) Hansen, Riverside, California; his “main squeeze” and sweetheart, Misty Bradshaw and her two sons, Trevor and Tracen. He was preceded in death by his father, Lee. The funeral will be held on Friday, November 7, 2014 at 1:30pm at the Brigham City 10th Ward, 145 West 500 South in Brigham City. Viewings will be held on Thursday, November 6th from 6:00 to 8:00pm at Gillies Funeral Chapel, 634 East 200 South in Brigham City and on Friday at the 10th Ward Church from 12 noon to 1:00pm. Interment will be in the Brigham City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to an account set up in Ted’s name at Wells Fargo Bank.
