Gregg Hanner, age 60, a resident of Hilliard, Ohio, passed away peacefully at his home on February 18, 2021 supported by loving family and friends, both in person and virtually.
Gregg was born February 20, 1960 in Arlington Heights, Illinois to Barbara (nee: Andree) and Emil Hanner and older brother Jerry, who was deeply suspicious of the new interloper. Over time, Gregg and Jerry grew to tolerate each other’s presence and occasionally pretended to like one another.
Gregg graduated from St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights and obtained his B.S. degree from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, majoring in Economics. From there, he entered the real estate development business and settled in the Columbus, Ohio area, ultimately founding and running CEG Development. In 2008, he discovered the love of his life, Amy Goebel and they married on December 1, 2012 in Dublin, Ohio. After marrying, Gregg and Amy embarked on a wonderful life together, traveling to overseas destinations too numerous to mention and making countless memories. Most family and friends considered that in marrying Amy, Gregg got the better end of the deal.
Gregg loved landscaping, fishing and arguing, mostly about politics and economic theory. He landscaped every house he owned, and fished where he could, mostly in Spooner, Wisconsin from when he was a young boy but also with his grandson, Landon, in Ohio. He loved the Goebel family farm in Crooksville.
Gregg was preceded in eternal life by his mother, Barbara, and grandparents, Joseph Hanner, Irma Hanner, Hattie Andree, Mike Andree and Bertha Andree. He is survived by his wife, Amy; his father, Emil Hanner; aunt, Alice Lamm; brother, Jerry (Patty); his children, Derek, Colin and Catlin Hanner, Amy Ullrich, Cody (Angel) Harkless and Shane Harkless; grandkids, Landon, Chloe and Ava Harkless and nieces and nephews, Jennifer Hanner Shonce (Joe), Alicia Hanner Reese (Dave), Katharine Hanner and Ollie Hanner. And, Schatzi, a pet in name only was Gregg’s canine companion and occasional partner-in-crime.
