    Father Hannan was a special friend of our family. He will be always remembered by his kindness towards us. He taught me how to drive (with a lot of patience), he regularly came to pick peas from our garden, and we enjoyed many conversations over tea and baking. He is missed greatly. Rose-Marie, Paul and Catherine Cilia

    Rest In Peace Father Hannan. Meh was a truly wonderful and patient man who cared so much for the church and the whole parish. I have many wonderful memories of him at St James Church and teaching us as children about God at the school. A life well lived.

    Father Hannon was my priest throughout elementary school at St. James in Colgan. He was really lovely and funny and I always looked forward to his homilies. He was a very kind man and I have really great memories of church and faith while growing up because of him. RIP.

    Father Hannan was very special in our lives. He helped us to establish a youth club in our parish and supplied a bus to transport the kids to the cottage. He helped us greatly when we lost our son in law in an accident. Men like him do not come around very often. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE OUR FRIEND. MAY GOD BLESS

    Fr. Frank Hannan was very Special in our lives. He was always there for us. He was there to support our family when Alan died. He helped us threw our worst times. He also was amazing with the youth, not only helping establish a Youth Club, but was always active with the kids even to supplying transportation for outings for the kids. They really enjoyed the cottage weekends. Joe was with him almost every Sunday as Eucharist Minister, Altar Boy, or Lector. He was a Special and Holy Person. He will be greatly missed. Fr. Frank, MAY YOU REST IN PEACE. GOD BLESS

    I am very sad to hear about the passing of Father Hannan. Father Hannan was always so nice to me. I remember him very well. He took my first Holy confession and was there when I made my first Communion and again when I made my Confirmation. He always took the time to listen to me and was always very kind and always gave us kids hugs. RIP and fly with the angels.

Please share your tribute ...
