Beloved Son, Father, Grandfather, and Friend.
Dad was taken from us way too soon. He was battling a severe lung disease when his heart stopped the night of December 30th, 2021.
Lamar was born third son, May 28th, 1962, to Bruce Hansen and Joan Ainsworth at the LDS hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Lamar grew up in Sandy, Utah with his brothers and many cousins. He played little league baseball with his best friend Don Goetz. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with his brothers, uncles, cousins, nephews, and friends. He was known by all to have a keen eye for his targets. His best fishing buddy was Jeff Fitzwater.
Lamar was known to joke around with people and pull pranks, always the life of the party. His passion was to be around his family, friends and the great outdoors. He loved to always take a ride up to the mountains, cook, play pool, watch his favorite football team the 49ers, listen to classic rock, and watch westerns and his Clint Eastwood movies.
His profession started out at a young age with the family business, Hansen Stone, where he became a stone carver and a master stone mason. You can see his work all through out the state of Utah. He was always a perfectionist with his work as well as in his home.
Lamar graduated from Valley High, where he met his first wife Diana Smith. They had two beautiful daughters, Jamie and Erin. Later on divorced and married Angel and helped raise her two sons Josh and Johnny. Divorced again, finding his true love, Joyann, marrying and moving to Torrey, Utah until her passing in 2012.
He is preceded in death by his wife Joyann and dog Jackson. Survived by his loving parents Bruce Hansen and Joan Ainsworth (Noal), brothers Wade (kelli), Noal (Debbie), and Raymond, daughters Jamie (Jeff), Erin (Cody), Mericha (David), stepchildren Josh (Ashley), Johnny, Aaron and Kiara (Jake), grandchildren Gage, Gunner, Gatlin, and soon to be granddaughter April 2022, and many nieces and nephews.
We will be having a celebration of life on Saturday, May 28th, 2022 at the small Main Street Park in Sandy, where everyone used to gather back in the good ole' days. All the details will be posted by the family later on.
We want to thank everyone for their love and support in this time of pain, but we all can agree dad is free from his disease, his pain, and his suffering. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers.
We love you dad and you will always be in our hearts.
