ANGUS MERVIN HANSEY
He leaves to mourn and cherish his life, his son Rodney (Karen), grandson Eric (Kiera), granddaughter Jessica (Clayton); his daughter Tracey (James), granddaughter Shaynese (Creighton), great-grandson Easton; granddaughters, Brittany and Tristyn (Brant); his daughter Terrey; grandsons, Tyler (Julie) and Joshua; his brother Douglas; nephews, Dougie, Bradley, and Mathew; niece Shannon; sister-in-law Esther; nephew Jeff; nieces, Allison, children, Bryson and Caitlyn, and Amber (Josh), son Burkely; as well, many family, friends and neighbours.
Angus was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Margaret; brothers, Ronald and Gary; and his loving wife Joan of 58 years.
Angus grew up in West Kildonan and lived there all of his life. He spent many summers working on his grandfather's farm in Stony Mountain. He trained as an auto mechanic, working at Dickson Motors, beginning his passion for cars. On weekends he would have a line of cars at his home to fix for friends and family. Angus later changed careers working with his Dad at the family business, Atlas Window Cleaning. He was joined at this business with his childhood best friend Bill and together they created A & B Window Cleaning. After Bill's death, Angus continued on with Atlas Window Cleaning until he retired in 2005, his son Rodney taking the torch and continuing to build the business.
Angus' passion for cars inspired him to build a 1938 Chevy which was featured in the Winnipeg Free Press. He joined the MHRA Car Club participating in car shows and fundraisers during his retirement.
Angus and Joan built a cottage in Balaton Beach in 1983 where they spend many years enjoying it with family, friends and their dogs. It was their sanctuary, a place to relax and celebrate during their retirement years. Many memories were created there and they leave it as a legacy for the family to cherish.
The family will be having a private gathering to honour his life.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society.

We are so sorry to hear of Gus passing. Take comfort knowing Joan and Gus are together again. Sincerest condolences to the family. - Posted by: Ted and Margaret (Neighbors) on: Apr 21, 2021
My sincere condolences to Rodney, Tracy, Terry, and of course to the entire Hansey family. Our families connected back in the 60s because our parents were hockey parents through Blair and Rodney. Hard to reminisce about as I always referred to as Mr. Hansey without Mrs. Hansey. They were both a team. Many weekends our parents would get together for singing, accordion playing, card playing. Mr. Hansey had a gift for repairing cars and Mrs. Hansey hair dressing. We all got our hair cut from her. I remember Mr. Hansey always smiling laughing at I don't know what at, as I was just a kid. Over the years our families slowly drifted apart. Rodney and Blair kept in touch but we all get up in age and move onto things with our own families. I have always had fond memories of the Hanseys growing up together in the 60s and 70s. Mr. and Mrs. Hansey you both did well raising great kids. You both were always respected by me and my family. Rest In Peace together. - Posted by: Grant Leverick (Aquaintance,) on: Apr 18, 2021
I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing! I am remembering him teaching me to parallel park, worked every time. Alas I wish I could remember what the trick was. My car does it for me now. Much Aloha to you and the family. - Posted by: Irvin Biluk (cousin) on: Apr 18, 2021
