William Dean Hahn

Dean is survived by his wife of 42 years, Kathy Kerr Hahn; mother, Dorothy Hahn; son, Will (Meagan) Hahn; daughters, Myra (Mark) Duke and Leigh (Chris) VanHouten.  His grandchildren include Haley and Hayden Duke, Holden, Forrest and Graylie Lawless and Wyatt VanHouten.

Dean was preceded in death by his father, Gilbert Hahn; sister, Peggy Hahn Young and his hunting buddy and companion, “Bullet”.

  1. So sorry to hear this. Dean was a very good man and always loved to see him come in my grandparents place in Casscoe. He had a smile that lite up the room. Prayers lifted up for his family.

    I miss him already!! I idolized my cousin, Dean. He was Superman to me and we enjoyed spending time talking or just hanging out! Hours and hours riding with him on the tractor or combine. The excitement of having air conditioning and an 8-track player on the combine!!! How cool were we, Dean. We loved Humble Pie and other rock hits!! Love you with all my heart!
    Lord, thank you for Dean. He would always listen intently and had great advice and comments! Thank you! And may your blessings be with all of his family and friends. Amen.
