Elwin “Pat” Hugh Hanna, beloved husband of Ethel Hanna of Medicine Hat, passed away on Thursday, December 24th, 2015 at the age of 81 years. Pat also leaves to cherish his memory his five children: Brenda (Jamie) Durkin of Redcliff; Brett Hanna of Medicine Hat; Mark Hanna of Medicine Hat; Terri (Dennis) Mann of Medicine Hat; and Julie (David) Herrmann of Schuler; ten grandchildren: Kayleigh (Brandon) and their children, Rylee and Ryder; Nicole and her children, Jack and Olivia; Anna (Murray) and their children, Gabriel and Hope; Brady; Brianne; Chris (Amy); Justine and her daughter, Lily; Jade (Brendan) and their son, Hudson and a wee one on the way; Amy; and Blair; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and sisters-in-law. Pat was predeceased by his parents; one brother, Lanny; and one sister, Deonne. Pat was an avid stock car racer for over five decades from the 1950’s to the 90’s both in Medicine Hat and Lethbridge. He also enjoyed golfing, playing pool, and working in his yard. Pat worked for the CP Rail as a locomotive engineer for 35 years and took great pride in his work. In his earlier years, he was an irrigation farmer and began tinkering with cars at an early age. Pat enjoyed travelling and loved animals, but nothing was more important than the time he spent with his family.
