With sadness, Jim’s family announce his passing on Friday, June 26, 2015. He leaves behind his daughter, Karen (Gemma); son, Mark (Leslie); grandchildren, Kennedy and Eve; sister, Evelyn Middlebrook of Timmins, Ontario. Jim was predeceased by his father, Gerald Hanna; mother, Edna (Houzer); sister, Marilyn Helset; & his wife Sheila (Barker).
Born in Welland, Ontario, Jim moved to Elliot Lake and while working construction he co-owned a business with his father called “Hanna Mosaics”.
