Bob Hannon: 1950-2003

On April 24th 53-year-old long-time Beaver Island summer resident Bob Hannon checked into the hospital for what seemed like a minor complaint. Eight hours later he was pronounced dead. He was known as a warm-hearted educator from Arlington Heights who enjoyed hosting gatherings at his Font Lake Home. He taught at John Hershey High School for over thirty years, where he received numerous awards: the Illinois Board of Education's Those Who Excel Merit Award, Arlington Heights' 2003 Educator Heart of Gold award, and a Principal Award.

Bob was brought to Beaver Island for a memorial mass on April 27th, officiated by Father Pat Cawley. He was preceded in death by his parents John and Rose Hannon, and is survived by brothers William (Janice), James (Nancy), and John, and sisters Janet (Patrick) O'Callahan and Mary Beth (Michael) Lyons.
