Kenneth Bryan Hafen (57) and Tammy Lee Hafen (58) beloved husband and wife, mother and father, Granny and Pop, son and daughter, brother and sister, passed away peacefully together after forty years of marriage at their home early in the morning of March 27th, 2019. Kenneth was born October 2nd, 1961 to Brent and Sylvia Hafen in Murray, Utah. Tammy was born July 15th, 1960 to Beverly Sillito and James Houston in Alberta, Canada.
Ken married Tammy, his eternal companion, best friend, and true love on December 22nd, 1978 in Provo, Utah. Together they have had a wonderful life and many amazing adventures. Tammy was always up for Ken’s latest shenanigans and Ken was always supportive of Tammy’s latest crafting craze. Together, they raised seven children and are the proudest grandparents of 19 beautiful grandchildren, with surely more to come.
The Hafens have lived a life of devotion to each other, their family, their friends, and their God. As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Ken and Tammy have been devoted disciples of the Savior, Jesus Christ. Their lives have been an example for their family to live by. They will be dearly missed and always remembered.
Ken and Tammy are survived by children and their spouses, Katie (Eric) Frommer, Laurie (Michael) Olson, Jenny (Robert) Downard, Matthew (Gislaine) Hafen, Ashley (Darin) Larsen, JayLynn (Joshua) Stokes, and Diana (Scott) Aylett; 19 grandchildren; Ken’s mother, Sylvia Hafen-Streuling; and many other dear family members.
Services previously held. Interment to take place at East Lawn Cemetery in Provo, Utah at a later date.
I love these people. Some of the kindest, most generous people I've ever met. I showed up to their house (I think it was the first time I'd met them) with some homemade noise-canceling headphones (#ghetto) I had pieced together from an online tutorial. They laughed with me and then handed over some top of the line Bose headphones they "weren't using anymore." Tammy knitted white booties and a cap for my daughter's blessing day and sent them all the way across the country for us. Fantastic people. So saddened by this news, but so grateful we'll see them again. All my love to the Hafen family.
To the family,
I am so sorry for your loss. What a horrrible thing to go through for you. May you find comfort in the Bible’s hope of a resurrection. John 5:28,29. Soon, death will be a thing of the past.
1 Corinthians 15:26.
How wonderful to hear of such a loving and happy relationship and family. Thank you for sharing their light and love story and giving hope in this often sad world.
I know this sweet family. I have moved away and just saw this. Does anyone know how they passed, it breaks my heart.
