Nicolo John Hannan, Sr. tipped his hat one last time as he rode out of life’s arena with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday January 28, 2019 at the age of 76. He was a native of New Orleans, LA and resided in Kenner, LA.

He is the son of the late Frank Thomas Hannan, Sr. and Rosalie Palazola Hannan; brother of the late Rose Marie Hannan, Frank Thomas Hannan, Jr. and John Michael Hannan.

His memories live on through his children, Kelli Ann Hannan Bledsoe (John), Toni Ann Hannan Parkinson (Terry), Nicolo John Hannan, Jr., Barbara Ann Hannan Bonstaff and their mother, Barbara Hannan; Phillip Mathew Hannan, Tyler Donald Hannan and their mother, Donna Hannan; his grandchildren, John Austin and Naomi Bledsoe, Hanna, Abbie and Allie Parkinson, Brittany Williams, Laura Hannan, Braden and Lukas Bonstaff; and his siblings, Elizabeth Baudouin (James), Rosemary Lagrange, Josie Touchet and Patricia Durapau.

Nick began his lifelong career as a Farrier in the City of New Orleans under the mentorship of the late Lawrence T. Leonardi. His passion was horseshoeing and blacksmithing. He was a Certified Farrier with the American Farriers Association and The Brotherhood of Working Farriers Association as well as a lifelong member of the Southern Farriers Association.

At the age of 24 while working at the Monteleone Hotel as a Bellhop he received praise from William A. Monteleone and was presented the City of New Orleans Certificate of Merit by Mayor Victor H. Schiro for his heroic efforts in assisting a score of persons to safety during the April 1966 hotel fire on the 14th floor.

His hobbies included judging rodeos and horse shows, hunting with his sons, grandsons, nephews and friends. He was an avid outdoorsman; hunting alongside his family and friends brought him much joy. Another central part of his life was the time he spent with his daughters; teaching them and supporting them was as important to him as making memories with them going dancing and showing horses.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the American Farrier’s Association, 4059 Iron Works Parkway, Suite 1, Lexington, KY 40511-8488 or by calling (859) 233-7411 (donations can be made to the General Fund for all programs, The Equine Research Fund or the Jim Linzy Memorial Fund which goes towards helping injured farriers) or to the Southern Farrier’s Association, care of Sandy McBeath, 10241 Road 216, Union, MS 39365-0001.

Today, while searching through my computer.....I discovered Nick's passing....what a shock as we had known each other for many years....THE HANNAN BOY's HAVE NOW JOINED THEIR MOM AND DAD IN GOD'S HEAVENLY HOME.....looking back to my special book of memories Nick and his family were always there, first, sharing our Grammar School Days at Sts. Peter & Paul.....becoming teenagers and sharing our Love with me, Johnny and Barbara....life seemed so good through those times.....Adulthood separated most of the connections; however when the name HANNAN was mentioned....everything came back into place.
My love for this family is eternal......and I will always remember Nick's love of the horses.... both His gentleness and what it takes to train and love them....such a challenge....
To Nick's family.....sorry I was not there to share His passing , but know that days, months and years may pass....I'M ALWAYS HERE FOR EVERYONE....

Sorry for the loss of your loved one. My deepest sympathy and condolences goes out to you and your family. The Bible calls Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) the source of life Acts 17:24,25 so have faith that Jehovah is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died so be assured that you will see your loved one again. Jehovah sees death as the enemy 1 Corinthians 15:26 and I pray he gives you comfort in your time of need. There have been eight instances in the Bible of humans young, old, male, and female who Jehovah brought back to life on earth John 11:39-44 and he yearns to bring back your loved one who are in his memory Job 14:14,15. I pray that Jehovah of comfort gives you strength and the ability to endure during this time and that you rely on him when you feel weak. In Jesus name I pray Amen
