Kenneth Hannah

November 23, 1963 — November 21, 2021

On Sunday, November 21, 2021, Kenneth “Kenny” Hannah passed away at the age of 57 years.

Left to hold his memory in their hearts his wife and partner Diane; children Blaze and Challis (Cody); siblings Lynn, Bob (Marilyn), Clifford, Holly (Jack), Wendy (Stan), Floyd (Darlene) and Eddy (Kerry); as well as many nieces, nephews and along with his Winnipeg family and large extended family.  Lastly, he leaves behind his four cats who entertained him and kept him busy.

He was predeceased by his parents Ken and Dorothy; mother-in-law Lorraine (Gerald); brother-in-law Art and nephew Art.

Kenny was raised in Poplar Point and called Portage la Prairie home for the majority of his adult life. Anyone who knew Kenny, knew he collected many treasures over the years, but Diane and his children were his greatest treasures. He was a provider and protector. He instilled values and ethics in his children and was deeply proud of them.

Kenny and his siblings always shared a strong family bond through all times, both good and bad. He always stayed connected through visits, interests and work they shared. There was often banter, many times, competitiveness- such as who could  get the better trade or deal. And of course, they would speak their minds to each other, but always found a way to move forward.

He will be warmly missed by his Winnipeg family who loved hearing about his adventures and always appreciated his help.

He was a best friend to many and a great friend to many more who will miss his company and friendship. Just know that he enjoyed all of it.

Work hard, Play hard; are words Kenny lived by. He was a man of many talents, who could fix practically anything. This was shown by his long and varied work history, starting with his first ‘job’ driving Hextall around and then working alongside his brother-in-law Art at the Highways Department. He had many different jobs throughout his life and his abilities were confirmed by the countless people who would call him for help or to do a job for them. Even following his back injury, he continued to do what he could to provide for his family. His greatest job was being a Dad.

For fun, Kenny always was ready to go and up for anything, be it with his friends or family. If it was outside and he could drive it, ride it, wreck it, fix it, trade it, catch it or save it- he was in. The bonus was always a fire, some company, a cold beverage and some good eats.

In respecting Kenny’s wishes, there will be no formal service. His family has gathered and will continue to gather. Kenny would want you to celebrate his life however you want and do whatever you feel is right.

He did not have any favourite charities, but he was a generous man.  Again, in Kenny fashion, give and share what you want and how you see fit.

So be with your favourite people, do your favourite thing and enjoy your favourite beverage and snack by a warm fire.

A tree will be planted in memory and cared for by McKenzies Portage Funeral Chapel.
