HANNAH, Samuel Raymond

January 8, 1943 – June 26, 2010


We are deeply sad that Sam has left us .


We will remember Sam for his keen sense of humour and his curmudgeon ways. Sam did many things: fishing; hunting; coaching minor baseball, hockey and soccer; playing card games especially bridge and euchre; painting; a cookie baker bar none; making delicious jams and jellies; and travelling. He was a lover of music. In later years he became a garage sailor bringing home more junk than Quaker has oats. Always looking for a deal, he would be pleased that he has beat the HST.


Sam graduated from high school in 1960 and went on to join the air force where he became an avionics technician. Later he worked as an instrument technician at CIL in Millhaven, Ontario, and later at Northwood Pulp in Prince George. In 1976 he became a teacher and taught for the Prince George School District #57 a retiring in 2003.


Sam leaves behind his loving wife of 43 years, Marilyn, sons Raymond of Vancouver; Jeffrey (Alana) of Prince George, sisters Carol (Elwyn) Watts of Kingston; and Evelyn (Bill) Badour of Kingston, plus several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Mabel Evelyn and Ray Borden Hannah and by his infant brother, Richard Gordon Hannah.


Our sincere thanks to Dr. Neufeld and St. Joseph’s Hospital’s 3rd floor nursing staff who are second to none. There will be a celebration of Sam’s life on Sunday, July 18, 1:00 p.m. at d’Esterre House, Comox Seniors Centre, 1801 Beaufort Avenue, Comox, B.C.
