WARREN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Robert A. “Bob” Hanna, 86, of Warren, passed away Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at home surrounded by family, after a brief illness.
Bob was born May 11, 1935, in Niles, Ohio the son of Joseph J. and Elizabeth (Salem) Hanna and was a lifelong resident of Warren.
He graduated from Warren G. Harding in 1953.
After graduating, Bob promptly went to work at General Electric, Trumbull Lamp.
In 1956 he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he proudly served for two years as a Private First Class.
After his discharge from the USMC, he returned to Trumbull Lamp where he continued his career as a maintenance foreman for 37 years, before Bob pulled the gates closed at the plant, the plant was closed and he retired in 1990.
He enjoyed bowling, golfing, baseball, playing catch, talking about old times, old friends, old cars and spending time with his family. He was a diehard Cleveland sports fan, whether it was baseball, football or basketball and you could always hear him yelling at the television when they were on. His smile, love and bellowing laughter will be greatly missed by all.
