OTTAWA — Steven M. Hanna, 59, of Ottawa, passed away Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017, at OSF St. Elizabeth Medical Center.

Funeral Mass will be at 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 5, at St. Columba Church with Rev. Mike Driscoll officiating and Rev. David Kipfer concelebrating. Visitation will be 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 4, and noon to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 5, at Gladfelter Funeral Home.

Steve was born May 30, 1958, in Libertyville, Ill. He is survived by his mother and father, Robert and Mary (Ledesma) Hanna; his fiancée, Katie Korn; children, Jessica Hanna, of Hammond, Ind., and Michael (Angie) Hanna, of Beach Park, Ill.; grandchildren, Miranda Nicole Cardin, Michael Albert Hanna and Ethan Robert Hanna.  

Steve leaves a brother, Philip Hanna, of Kenosha, Wis.; sisters, Laura Hanna, of Kenosha, Wis., and Tina (David) Schlichting, of Plymouth, Wis.; stepdaughter, Courtney (Todd) Gay, of Ottawa; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his biological father, Albert Beddla; and his grandparents, Antonio and Petra Ledesma.
Steve retired from Exelon in 2016. Nicknamed the “Hammer,” he enjoyed golfing with his friends and family. He also enjoyed fishing and traveling. Watching the Cubs win the World Series was a shining moment in his life, but his true passion for sports was his love for the Minnesota Vikings.  
Known for his great sense of humor, “Hammer” always knew what to say with perfect timing! Steve was a loving and devoted family man. He always loved his “Mudder Dear.”  
Memorial contributions may be made to the American Lung Association or the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research.
