George S. Hanna Jr. Obituary
George S. Hanna, Jr.

George S. Hanna, Jr., 78, passed away at the VA Medical Center Hospice in Coatesville, PA on February 12, 2014.

Born and raised in Bellefonte, DE George was the son of the late Alma Bamber McGinnes and George S. Hanna, Sr. He is also predeceased by his daughter Eileen Bugsy Hanna.

He served in the Army during the Korean War and worked locally at the GM plant, DrugHouse and Halls Freight in New Castle. George retired from Yellow Freight (Lancaster branch) in 1999.

In 1971 the Hanna family moved to a parcel of land in Landenberg, PA where he invested his blood, sweat and tears. Raising family, horses, and dogs, George was known to raise a little hell from time to time. He had need for adventure almost on a regular basis. George accumulated many "toys" over the years (cycles, boats, snowmobiles) and the biggest of all being several ultralites. For several years he was known in the area for flying his plane out of the home pasture all over the area.

Surviving are his beloved wife of 47 years, Catherine Jack Hanna, son GnySgt Stewart P. Hanna (USMC) ( his wife Amanda) of Indian Head, MD, daughter Diane Whaley of Somerset, PA, and two grandchildren.

A service honoring his life and sharing stories of yesteryear will be held at the VFW Hall in Hockessin, DE (Rt 41 - 7620 Lancaster Pike) on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 1-4 p.m. Memorial contributions may be made to Canine Partners for Life, P O Box 170, Cochranville, PA 19330-0170.
