Conrad Owen Hansen Obituary
Conrad Owen Hansen
1923 ~ 2014
Conrad survived WWII, heart attacks, major surgeries, the loss of his wife, Mary Lynne, but not old age. At age 90 the years finally added up. His mobility and strength quickly faded and then he slipped away gently, peacefully, early in the morning on March 3, 2014 to rejoice with his family and friends waiting on the other side.
Conrad was born November 5, 1923 in Logan, Utah, son of Leo Albert Hansen and Grettle Benson Owen, the fourth of eight children. He served honorably in WWII on Iwo Jima as a radar man. He attended BYU and the U of U. On December 8, 1951 he was sealed in the Salt Lake Temple to Mary Lynne Clayton. Together they raised a good and fun-loving family. His love of people led him to a career in sales and management. He happily finished his career with Hammond Toys, the best place for a grandpa to work.
Those celebrating a life well lived, full of love and concern, are his children: Becky (Randy) Gardner, Clayton (Sheryl), Tim (Bev), Alisa (Steve) Motzkus, and Stephanie (Bryan) Tagge; 23 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; siblings: Owen (Darlene), Karen (Verl) O'Brien and Grettle Carter; and anyone who ever ate Conrad's chicken.
The family would like to thank David Motzkus, grandson; Megan, Mikey, AJ and Dr. Allen of Brighton Hospice; and Taunda, Elenoa and Wanda of Home Option, for their loving and tender care.
The viewing will be held Friday, March 7, 2014, 6-8 p.m. at the East Millcreek 7th Ward, 3408 South Celeste Way (3000 E.). Graveside services will be held Saturday, March 8, 2014, 10:00 a.m. at Salt Lake City Cemetery, 200 "N" Street. Funeral services will follow Saturday at 12:00 noon at the church.
