Warren Hanscom, longtime resident of Marshfield, age 80, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Newton and was a graduate of Bentley College and a U.S. Army veteran. Warren was the beloved husband of Janet (McElroy) Hanscom. He met the love of his life in 1951 when he summoned up the courage to ask Janet to go on the Ferris wheel with him. He always said weve been going around ever since. Janet and Warren were married for 57 years and set the bar for everyone else when it comes to a perfect loving relationship. Warren and Janet loved to travel together and had many special trips including the White Mountains, Hawaii, Florida, National Parks, Colorado, Bermuda, Canada, Texas, Las Vegas, England and Italy. Warren worked at American Motors for 38 years as a Dealer Placement Manager and retired from Chrysler in 1993. He enjoyed reading, watching the Red Sox and Patriots but most of all he loved spending time with his family and following the daily activities of his six grandchildren. Family was the greatest joy of his life and his love will live on through his extensive family and friends. Left to cherish his memory are his three daughters, Laurel Hanscom and Angela Human of Houston, Texas, Lisa and Dave Crane of Sudbury, Lynda and Peter Sullivan of Duxbury; six grandchildren, Jared, Jeffrey, Lindsay, Gregory, Mark and Jessica; two sisters, Joan Golley of Abington and Cheryl and Doug MacLeod of Abington; sister-in-law Val and Joe Blinn of Marshfield; and numerous nieces, nephews and close friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Newton and Ann (Lambert) Hanscom, and his sister, Beverly Socoby.
