BRIGHAM CITY — Nile J. Hansen returned to the Lord on Saturday morning Oct. 5, after a seven month fight with cancer. He followed his beloved wife, Dorothy, only five short months after her passing. Nile was born Dec. 7, 1932, in Preston, Idaho. He grew up on a farm in Dayton, Idaho, with his brothers and sisters. He joined the Army as a young man a became a radio tech where he found he was very gifted at repairing electronics and fixing anything mechanical. He had a real knack, being able to make things work with whatever he had at his disposal. He married Dorothy A. Price on Dec. 16, 1957. Together they opened Niles H & H showcase and sold appliances and electronics. He and Dorothy ran their business for many years. Once they retired, he and Dorothy decided to buy a winter home in Arizona. They spent many of the cold Utah winters down there, where the air quality and weather was better for Dorothy’s health.
They began doing a lot of charity work from Arizona for some families in Mexico. Nile’s heart was always with the Mexican people and trying to make their lives better. His charity work for those people changed their lives in a way that most people will never understand.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy, sister, Lora, brother Delwyn, mother, Ann and father, Joseph.
He is survived by four daughters: Tammy, Shelly, Marla and Kevi. Eight grandchildren: Sloan, Ryan Ashley, Damon, Jace, Kyler, Kason and Chris. Two sisters Aileen, JoAnn, and one brother Arvin.
