    We regret to advise of the death of Master Warrant Officer William Robert "Bob" Hannah, CD (Retd') of Vernon, BC on 20 November 2015. Born in Manitoba in 1927 and raised in Saskatchewan, he enlisted in the Army at the young age of 16. When his real age was known he was not allowed to go overseas, but he was retained for employment as a Construction/Maintenance person. After the war Bob joined the Permanent Force and he served 25 years with the Canadian Military Engineers as a Construction Engineer. Postings saw him stationed in Chilliwack, BC, Edmonton and Calgary, AB, Fredericton and Gagetown, NB, and with a deployment to Egypt with the United Nations Emergency Force.

    When Bob retired from the Canadian Forces in 1973, he moved to Oyama, BC and started up a one-man repair business: “Hannah’s Repairs”. He loved to travel and had visited every country in Western Europe, each of the U.S. states at least once, as well as China, Japan, Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and North Africa.  {khFeb2016}
