John E. "Jack" Hahn

John E. “Jack” Hahn age 75 of Clyde passed away Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at The Bellevue Hospital.  The son of the late John H. & Helene (Flood) Hahn, Jack was born June 15, 1935 in Elyria, Ohio.

 Jack's professional career for Columbia Gas began in 1953 as a meter reader before eventually becoming the Bellvue area manager. In 1995 he proudly retired from their engineering department after 41 years of service.
