Peter Robert Hanner of Port Franks passed away peacefully at Bluewater Health in Sarnia on Thursday, February 18, 2021, at the age of 73 after a four-year courageous battle with cancer.
Peter was the best friend and loving husband of Jenny Hanner for 50 years. The couple originally met and married in England before moving to Canada where they went on to raise their son Darryl and daughter, Dawn. They were thrilled to welcome their daughter-in-law Michelle to the family and grandchildren Mackenzie and Nicholas.
Peter was raised in a small family with 2 sisters, Jean McFarlane (Pete) of Arizona and Wendy Dugdale (Ian) of England. Peter is also predeceased by his parents Leonard and Doris Hanner. He will be greatly missed by family, many relations, especially in England, and friends, in Canada and the USA.
An extremely proud Papa both Peter and Jenny loved traveling to Hockey tournaments to watch Nicholas and Cheerleading competitions to watch Mackenzie. They also enjoyed boating, taking cruises, and visiting Myrtle Beach. Peter was a talented carpenter, using his skills for anything from repairs to building his own home, and will be sorely missed by his many customers and friends.
A public service is not planned at this time. Family and friends look forward to a celebration of Peter's life later in the year 2021. Peter's family continue to remember him for his caring personality, a loyal husband, and a good friend. Donations are appreciated to the Canadian Cancer Society of The Lifeskills Centre in London.
