Gary Lee Hahn, age 78, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away on Tuesday, February 15, 2022, at Upper Valley Medical Center in Troy, Ohio, from complications of COVID-19.
He was born on August 27, 1943, in Greenville, Ohio, to the late Joyce Leo and Grace Ellen (Henninger) Hahn.
Gary was a 1961 graduate of Franklin Monroe High School. He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Pitsburg, Ohio. One of his first jobs was at Sellman’s in Greenville working with Mr. Everhart repairing appliances and mowers. After high school, Gary began his career in electrical work and plumbing. He never had a retirement date, as he loved doing what he did. It seemed as if there was nothing that Gary could not repair, he was able to save his customers a lot of money by repairing their appliances. Gary was quick to help family with any emergency. He had a great love for trains and enjoyed going to auctions weekly. Gary enjoyed doing things with his sister, Sue Ann; such as dining out and train rides for his birthday, vacations, shopping, putting picture puzzles together and playing games. One of Gary’s favorite games was Monopoly. He enjoyed playing with and spoiling Sue’s cats.
Gary is survived by his sister, Sue Ann Hahn of Arcanum as well as numerous cousins and friends. Gary spent a lot of time with Pam Shively over the past forty years and especially after his mother passed in 1999.
