Brady B. Hansen

March 26, 1987 ~ March 30, 2021

“Brady B” Hansen was welcomed into heaven with a giant bear hug from his Dad on March 30, 2021. He came stubbornly into the world on March 26, 1987 to his parents Patti and Brad Hansen. He always wished for a little brother and was granted that wish when Connor was born in 1996.

His dad was his football and baseball coach and number one fan. They had fun traveling with the U of U football team in addition to fly fishing in Island Park until Brad’s passing in 1999. Brady never got over losing his dad.

Brady was passionate about the things he loved. Fast cars & motorcycles, University of Utah football, fly fishing, and golf were his main loves. He took care of everybody in his life, and toward the end, his grandmother Beverly. He always somehow found the good in things, and people, whenever there seemed to be none. Brady found a passion in writing the last few years, and it brought him a lot of comfort to express himself this way. He also loved pranks, jokes, and making people smile.

Brady got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life Jessica Johnson in the middle of a Utes Football game in November 2019. They were looking forward to spending their lives together with their fur babies Koda and Charlie. “I loved you then, I love you still, I’ll love you always. Rest in Peace.” -Jessica

He was bigger than life, and always the life of the party. He lived and loved fiercely in his short 34 years. Brady was a handful at times but always was loving and caring, often taking on others pain. He loved to help others and was always a very empathetic person.
Survived by his mother Patti, brother Connor, fiancé Jessica Johnson, and grandmothers Beverly Hansen and Joyce Jorgensen. Included he also had a bunch of family and friends who loved him.

Brady is united with his Dad and beloved dog Kizzi in heaven. He is free from the pain and hurt he felt on earth. Fly high, and fast, sweet Brady.


I first came in contact with Brady when he joined the "Team Stella" Facebook page. This page was started in honor of "Stella" who was an injured dog so friends could pray for and support her family. The love these people showed to each other was infections and when Brady joined he became a very active important member, always giving a comforting word to someone else who was going through what he went through with his beloved Kizzi. I was always impressed with his love and gratitude and he inspired me. He even gave me suggestions when I made a trip to Moab last fall. He was just a great guy! My heart goes out to his family while they grieve his loss. May the memorie of such a beautiful soul comfort you in the years to come! 'In my Fathers house are many mansions. I go to prepare a place for you!"
