William “Bill” R. Hann, 76

February 10, 2019

William “Bill” R. Hann, 76, of Lititz, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 10th, 2019 at Moravian Manor in Lititz under the care of hospice. He was the loving husband of Mary Ann (Myer) Hann with whom he shared 53 years of marriage. Born in Jersey City, NJ he was a son to the late Elwood Y. and Lavinia (Smith) Hann, Sr.
As a child, Bill had a love of trucks, which was further fueled by his first job at a local trucking company, J Rollman &Sons, Inc, where he would wash the rigs and hang out with the drivers. After high school he attended Stephens Trade School and went on to follow his passion of becoming a truck driver. He worked for several trucking companies over the years and ultimately retired with Yellow Freight in 2007 after 25+ years of service there. During that period, he was honored with several safe driver awards and certificates. He was a proud member of Lititz Moravian Church and a veteran of the United Stated Army National Guard.
A devoted husband, father and grandfather, Bill loved to spend time with his family. Before they started their own family, he and Mary Ann would often take their snowmobile out for a day of fun in the snow, along with their dachshund Leisel. Frequently through the years, he and Mary Ann enjoyed traveling with friends to several different tracks to watch Nascar Races. He also had an affinity for classic cars. Bill and his friends attended local car shows, spending hours walking around looking at restored, antique cars and hotrods. He held onto the first two cars he ever owned, a 1955 and 1957 Chevy, with the intent to restore them to their original condition someday. Sadly, he never got around to doing so.
He had a love of the outdoors, and he enjoyed hunting and fishing with his two sons. Bill especially adored his 6 grandchildren, who affectionately referred to him as “Paw Paw”. His eyes lit up with joy and he smiled ear to ear every time he saw them. He rarely missed attending any of their numerous sporting events. He also loved to go watch the Hershey Bears ice hockey games with his son and grandsons. Perhaps his favorite pastime was vacationing with his children and grandchildren in Ocean City, MD and Raystown Lake, where he happily watched the kids swimming, tubing and fishing from his boat.
In addition to his wife, Mary Ann, he is survived by his children: Brian S. (Lisa) Hann of Lititz, Kevin L. (Lori Hoke) Hann of Lebanon, Sherie L. (Matt Hagy) Hagy of Lititz; siblings: Elwood (Barbara) Hann, Jr. of Manheim, Richard (Elise) Hann of Palmyra, Ruthie (Dennis) Shiffer of Ohio, Gloria James of Lititz, Nancy Hann of Manheim; grandchildren: Logan, Hayden, Ean, Paige, Chase, Lexi and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by a brother, Thomas J. Hann.
There will be a memorial service on Saturday, March 2nd at 11:00 am at the Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA 17543.
