July 7, 1945 — February 1, 2024

Spring City

Quay Von Hansen, 78, passed away at his home in Spring City February 1, 2024. Quay was born July 7, 1945 to Lowell Franklin Hansen and Etha Jeanette Shaw Hansen. 

Quay was blessed with the most beautiful red hair and was given the nickname of Red.

He grew up in Spring City spending most of his time helping his dad at the farm, teasing his two younger sisters and listening to his Grandad Hansen tell stories of his time spent in Spring City Canyon and Canal Canyon. Quay gained a love for the mountains and couldn't wait to explore the places he heard about, which in his teenage and adult years he made sure to do and made memories and stories of his own.

Quay had the best childhood and made many friends that became lifelong friends. He cherished those relationships through the years.


Quay married his eternal sweetheart Kristin Losser on June 28,1968 in the Manti temple. They were blessed with two children together, Hal and Holly.

Quay graduated from North Sanpete High School in 1963, and then served an LDS mission to the Northwestern States Mission in 1964 which included Oregon, Idaho, and Washington.

 He was an Eagle Scout and later spent many years as a Scout leader.


Quay worked for Utah Power and Light at the power plant in Huntington Utah as a mechanic. He retired in 2002. Quay made many lifelong friends through his years at the plant. He loved spending time with his buddies from work, they had many fun horse riding trips in the east desert.


Quay spent 22 and a half years faithfully serving in the Utah National Guard. He retired from the Guard in 1990. He loved his time in the Guard and serving with a lot of his friends from the Sanpete Valley.


After retiring Quay spent his time working the family farm, going on Jeep rides up the mountain with Kris, going on horse rides with friends and family, going on 4-wheeler rides with his daughter Holly and friends from town. He loved spending time at the San Rafael, Swasey’s Cabin was one of his favorite spots.


Quay’s true loves were his horses and he spent as much time as he could riding and working with them. He also enjoyed welding and making fun projects. He was an avid hunter and loved being in the mountains whenever possible.


One thing that will be remembered about Quay by everyone who knew him was his storytelling. Stories that have been handed down from generation to generation came alive when he told them. So many stories have made so many amazing memories for family and friends, especially if they were told around the campfire.


Quay is having an amazing reunion with his sweetheart Kris, his parent’s Lowell and Etha, brother Lorell, his brother Kent who preceded him in death by just a month, and his brother in-law Dee Bullock. His in-laws Harold and Leta Losser. And many friends and other family members.
