Survivors include loving wife, Sigrid Hahn; sons, Michael Hahn & wife, Kristina, and David Hahn; five amazing grandchildren; nephew, Rick Hahn; niece, Christie Kelley; and many other friends, relatives, and loved ones.

The family would like to extend special gratitude to the ICU staff at Methodist Medical Center for the compassionate care during Tom’s brief illness. They would also like to include the staff and parishioners of St. Mary’s, particularly Father Ray, who gave Tom the last Anointing for his final journey.
