Stanley Ray Hadden

March 26, 1926 — August 5, 2023

Bountiful, UT

On a beautiful summer evening, Saturday, August 5, 2023, Stan peacefully passed away at home surrounded by family.  Stan was born on March 26, 1926, to F. Dean and Rowena Hadden in Utahn, Utah.  He married the love of his life, Dorothy Mayer Hadden, on December 20, 1947, in Elko, Nevada.  They raised five children: Steven (Connie), Kathy (Dave) Wernli, Scott (Eliska Mirvald), Cindy (Keith) Fleming and Sue (Craig) Jones. He has six grandchildren four great grandchildren and eight great, great grandchildren.

Stan served proudly as a paratrooper in the US Army in the 82nd Airborne Division in World War II.

Stan was a professional truck driver for 38 years. In 1981, he received Consolidated Freightways’ Million Miler award in achieving two million safe driving miles. In 1983, he was recognized as Driver of the Year from the Utah Motor Transport Association and in 1984 he was awarded the Truck Driver of the Year for Utah from the ATA Foundation Inc.

Family was the most important thing to Stan and Dorothy. Together they enjoyed boating, family vacations, the great outdoors, motorcycle riding, and skiing.  Stan and Dorothy traveled the world with their favorite travel partners, Mitch and June Morris. Their theme song, On the Road Again, always playing in the background. A highlight for Stan was a flight on the Concorde Super Sonic Jet.

His family is deeply grateful for the excellent care and compassion shown by Brande (our angel), Katherine, Monica, Kaleb, Jenna, Deon, Heather and Carlos of Home Instead. We are also appreciative of Inspiration Home Health & Hospice and Trent, Cindy, Shannon, Jennie, Reagan and Shelby and many more incredible caregivers.
