Play Tribute Movie Play Tribute Movie

Daniel Ryan Hannon of Kannapolis, NC was born on March 4, 1981 in Pittsburgh, PA and went home to be with the Lord alongside his beloved baby boy, Noah Henry, on November 29, 2018.

Daniel was a graduate of East Mecklenburg High School and was a student of Business Administration at Bellevue University. He was a loyal employee of the Lowe’s cooperation for 19 years, serving in Corporate Investigations at their Mooresville headquarters.

Daniel was an amazing father who loved his children with everything in him. He was a loving son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend to many. He loved the Lord with all of his heart. Daniel was the kind of person who always put others needs before his own. His kindness and generosity were well known to all who loved him.

Daniel was preceded in death by his father Bruce Hannon, grandfather Michael Bozurich and grandparents Paul and Alma Koontz. He is survived by his children Molly and Chase Hannon, mother Carol Hannon, grandmother Margaret Bozurich, siblings Amy and Mark Roper and Dana and Domingo Palos, ex-wife Erika Hannon, niece and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins and many friends who were like family.

Although his time on Earth was cut short, he packed a tremendous amount of living into 37 brief years. He made friends wherever he went, was wise beyond his years and could crack a joke that would leave your sides aching. Today, he leaves our hearts aching.

Noah Henry Hannon of Kannapolis, NC was born on July 18, 2015 and earned his angel wings, alongside his father, Daniel Ryan Hannon, on November 29, 2018.

Noah was just finding his voice and always had a smile on his face that could light up any room. His laughter was infectious. He loved swimming, playing chase with his brother and sister and spending time with his family. He sang his little heart out, especially when he would belt out tunes like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, The ABCs and “Noah Finger, Noah Finger, Where are You?” He was fearless, full-speed and fun-loving.

Noah was preceded in death by his grandfather Bruce Hannon, great-grandparents Walter and Aileen Huskey and great-grandfather Michael Bozurich. He is survived by his mother Erika Hannon, siblings Molly and Chase Hannon, grandparents Don and Linda Shirey, grandmother Carol Hannon, great-grandmother Margaret Bozurich, aunts and uncles Amy and Mark Roper and Dana and Domingo Palos, cousins Seth, Sophia and Landon and many members of extended family and friends.

Although we were only blessed to have him with us for a few short years, he has left a huge hole that can never be filled. He was loved dearly by all who were lucky enough to know him during his time here on Earth.

“You were born a child of light's wonderful secret - you return to the beauty you have always been.” Aberjhan

I only had the privilege of working with Dan for short time, but he made an impression on me that will last a lifetime. Dan would always have a warm smile and a funny story to share. His laugh was infectious and you never had any other choice than to laugh along with him. He always made a point to ask me about my day, my family and my kids and we’d then compare stories and experiences to which we would always end up laughing at one another. He will definitely be missed each and every day but will live on forever in our hearts. 💜

I had the privilege to work with Dan for many years. He was a bright spot in my day and I thoroughly enjoyed the time we shared. Dan was very intelligent, very funny, very engaging, and very helpful with anything I needed at work. His mastery of Lowe's, our return system, customer service, and protocols was stellar. He was rife with good ideas and excellent follow through. His responses were shared with merchants, operational leaders, and vice presidents. He was my friend and an enormous help at Lowe's. We always discussed football...and his beloved Steelers, whom, as a Chiefs fan, I dreaded playing since they basically own us :). He was always gracious, always pleasant, and always a great dad. In fact, honestly, my own father and Dan Hannon inspire me to be the best father I can be. I miss my friend a great deal. The world was a better place with him in it and he will be missed by many people for many years. I'm so sorry for this tragic loss and my thoughts are with his family and others that loved him. Godspeed, Dan. It was a pleasure to know you.

Erica, to you, I send all my love. There are no words, nor will there ever be, to express the sadness I feel. You have been a part of our family for a long time and will continue to be an integral member of it. Take comfort in your friends and your family. They will forever be there to lean on and support you. Little Noah was a blessing to all. Keep that thought in your heart. I love you Erica.

Sweet little Noah, you definitely kept us on our toes, swinging from chandeliers, jumping on couches, & flinging yourself into the pool. We all loved your sweet spirit & your boundless energy. I remember you teaching me sign language. We love & adore you, sweet boy. Our wish is that you & Daddy & Unk are together enjoying the BEST pool ever. ❤️❤️❤️

Noah, you had a tremendous impact on our lives the brief time we knew you. You were without a doubt the most fearless child I've ever met. Swimming pool? The deeper the better. Diving board? Oh yeah I'll
jump of that. Sliding board into 10 foot deep end? Let me carry a foam float up the ladder with one hand because it makes me go faster. Oh and by the way. When I'm done, yall have drums. Give me that little one so I can join in. You were a light extinguished to soon. Every year when we open the pool and every year when we close it. I will commemorate the event with the war cry we shared. RAAAAHHHH!!! I will miss you little man

Even though I didn’t get to spend time with Noah, I feel as though I did. I work along side with your Nana and you and your brother and sister meant the world to her. Not a day went by that we didn’t talk about our grandbabies. The stories she told of you asking for the IPad and crawling in bed with her and your Pawpaw. Your Nana’s eyes would glow when she’d get a call and you’d tell her, “ I love you Nana”. And the laughter when she’d told me the story of you wanting a Mr Tomato head. How they’d try to get you to say it right and you’d try and it’d come out Mr Patomato head. I know you will be surely missed but I find comfort that you are right there with your Daddy. And I know that you and your Daddy will be right there beside your Mommy, Molly, Chase, Nana, Paw Paw and the rest of your family. Your life was cut too short but the impact that you left in everyone’s life was huge. Go fly high baby boy!!

There will probably never be an understanding as to why you Journey on earth ended so soon, I find some peace in knowing you embarked on your new adventure holding your daddy's hand. My heart is sadden for the loved ones who lost you, holding your memory holding on to all the things that made you happy holding on to the love you gave them. I pray for your mother Erika to be able to close the gaping hole your untimely passing has brought her...I pray she can mend it with memories of you, thoughts of you, her undeniable love for you. I hope that she can always feel your love always hear your voice and forever remember your wonderful touch. I will continue to pray for her healing cause I am sure it will take everything she has and everyone supporting and praying for her to get her through this. my heart aches for your brother and sister and hope they too can find away to fill the void of losing both of you. Their world will never be the same so Shine down on them as often as you can let them both know you two will forever be by their sides.
