Murray, Utah-Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed away on November 7, 2014. Kay was born June 20, 1923 to Clarence and Etta May Jensen Hansen in Fountain Green, Utah. He graduated from Moroni High School in 1941. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving for almost 3 years. Two of those years were spent in the South Pacific during WWII. He was honorably discharged from the service in 1945. He married Margaret Davenport on June 4, 1945 in the Manti Temple.
Kay's career was in the mechanical trade as a plumber, welder and pipe fitter. He became a successful mechanical contractor starting in 1960. He was president of Allied Plumbing and Heating for over 30 years. Kay served as a director and president of the Utah Mechanical Contractor's Association.
