Wade Ray Hansen of Three Forks took his final ride to Heaven on July 19, 2022, surrounded by his loving family. Wade was born on April 24th, 1965, to Jay and Patricia Hansen in Glasgow, Montana. Wade was raised in Manhattan, Montana and graduated from Manhattan High School where his daughters, Tara and Kylie Hansen, and his nephew, Dustin Hansen later graduated from as well. Since Wade was young, he has always grown up with and loved the cowboy way of life. He spent many years traveling the wild rodeo road with his brother, J.L. Hansen, and then spent the rest of his life traveling the less wild rodeo road with his daughters. Wade loved skiing, welding, kayaking, the lake, playing darts, and would try just about anything at least once. Although Wade did many things, his greatest accomplishment of his life was having his two daughters and supporting them all the way through. Wade was the dad that never missed a phone call and helped with any and everything they needed at the drop of a hat. Wade worked for Towhaul for over twenty years where he was able to travel the world and build relationships across the globe. Later in his life he ended up starting his own welding business where he put his passions and creativity to work. Wade is survived by his two daughters Tara and Kylie Hansen, his mom and dad Jay and Patricia Hansen, his brothers J.L Hansen (wife Christie Hansen and nephew Dustin Hansen), and Daniel Hansen (wife Nan Hansen and children Chelsea and Dusty Hansen.
A celebration of life took place on July 24.
