Gerald "Jerry" Hannah, passed away on September 12, 2019 with his loved ones by his side. Born in Paterson, New Jersey in 1949, he was the son of the late Gavin and Mary Hannah. Jerry graduated from Villanova University and worked in Human Resources for many years. Jerry loved the outdoors, had a passion for college basketball (Go Nova!) and enjoyed reading in his spare time. Music was a big part of Jerry's life.

Jerry is survived by his wife, Janet; daughter, Maria; and brother, Edward (Susan). He also is survived by his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Thomas and Mary Ann Oberholtzer, and nieces and nephews in Indiana, New York and New Jersey.
