It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Theodore (Ted) Hector Hansen on March 27, 2021.

Ted is predeceased by his parents, Blanche and Howard; and his daughter, Julie. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Nadeane; his sons, Robb (Betty-Sue), Dean (Jacquie), Mark (Margaret), and Matt (Juliet); his 10 grandchildren, Matthew (Kristen), Thomas (Becky), Mitchell (Steph), Theodore (Ally), Chloe, Jack, Neil, Kevin, Jake (Rebecca), and Kathryn; and his four great-grandchildren, Callie, Johnathan, Sophie, and Emma.

Ted was born in Kamloops, BC on October 28, 1935, and raised on the family farm in Little Fort, BC. He graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Physical Education degree in 1957.

In 1959, Ted was recruited into the wholesale lumber industry. He thrived as a salesman, with his outgoing personality, incredible sense of humour, and reputation as a man of his word. Following his career in lumber, Ted and Nadeane moved to Whistler, BC in 1995, where Ted sold real estate and volunteered as a mountain host with Blackcomb for 20 years.

Ted was an avid golfer his entire life. It was a love/hate relationship. When Ted wasn't skiing or golfing, you could find him fly fishing at Taweel Lake. Taweel has been a second home to the entire family for generations. Ted's early years at the lake were spent as a fish boy at the camp and driving the Jeep road.

Ted's true love was for his family. It was the overriding purpose of his life and the focus of every decision he ever made. His devotion as a loving husband, father, and grandfather will be his true legacy for eternity. He will be forever loved and remembered in the hearts of his family and friends.

The family gives special thanks for the care Ted received from the staff at Berkley Care Centre in North Vancouver, BC. A celebration of his life will be planned when possible, condolences may be expressed online obituary at:

How great to leave this life knowing you have helped create such a vast and incredible family. Thanks for providing us a welcoming home back in high school to meet friends and shoot hoops. Thanks for showing me where the choice double black diamond runs were when I ran into you up the mountain. I know you will be truly missed by all who knew you Ted.
Take care of each other Hansen Family, thinking of you all.
