“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 will never forget how you won all the games at Jordan's baby shower when she was pregnant with Jaxon. It was so perfect especially since you were the only boy there! Thank you for being such a joy in my life. You will be greatly missed.

Our paths crossed so many times throughout the years, and I enjoyed every single time. From your elementary classroom, to the tailgate lot, you always displayed your kindness....and devotion to the UTES!

Thank you for being genuine, and devoted. Your father has told you already, I’m sure. Enjoy the box seats, forever.
