Born August 8, 1965, in Kansas City, MO, he was the son of Lawrence Hahn and Kate (Alderson) Hahn. Pete was Purchasing Manager at The Kansas City Marriott & Muehlbach Downtown Hotel. Earlier, he was Executive Chef at the Raphael Hotel Kansas City for many years. He was very talented and creative with his menus. His favorite menu creation was Prix Fixe, where he enjoyed pairing several food courses with wine. He created and executed beautiful menus for the Kansas City Local Chapter of Chaine des Rotisseurs on a few occassions. He was also an intoductory level Master Sommelier, which gave him the knowledge and understanding of pairing wine with food. During his earlier years at the Alameda Plaza Hotel he was lucky to have Chef Jess Barbosa as a mentor; they enjoyed a lifelong friendship. Pete was a past and active member of ACF Kansas City Chefs Association. Pete also enjoyed reading, and could do the most difficult NY Times crossword quite handily. He was a wonderful husband and father who was very proud of his son Brad. In Brad's earlier years Pete coached him in many seasons of football, baseball and basketball. Pete was also an avid golfer. He was the KC Chiefs most loyal fan, and loved the Kansas City Royals as well. Pete loved music and enjoyed traveling to concerts, or visiting local venues with his wife Kathy. He had a wonderful sense of humor, was fair, kind, gentle and humble.
Pete is survived by his wife Kathy, his son Brad, sister Amy Hahn, many nieces and nephews, and his entire Marriott family.
The family would like to thank Mark Pistilli and Vince Paredes for their friendship during this difficult time. Special thanks to Kevin Pistilli and Cynthia Pistilli Savage for always treating him like family.
Pete, we will always love you and miss you, and you will be in our hearts forever.

I thank God for the privilege of knowing such a kind, generous and wonderful man. I thank God for the years we were married, and for our son Brad who has many of your traits. You were the best husband and father! I ask that God hold you in his loving arms forever!

Amy...how saddened I was to read of Peter’s passing..the obituary and video
are a real tribute to a life well lived. Your parents are assuredly very proud.
So many fond memories of living across the street from the Hahns on 68 terr. My favorite...your parents had a big old Buick they parked at the top of the drive. One day Peter released the parking brake and the car ended up in our front yard...memories, memories. Peace and prayers to all your family.

I have great memories of working for Chef Hahn at the Raphael Restaurant twenty plus years ago. It was a privilege to be a small part of that restaurant family in which Pete was such a strong influence. My deepest condolences to all the family.

To your wife, son and all of your family and friends I offer my prayers and sincere condolences. Chef Peter over the years we’ve chatted and attended many Chef Association Events . You always volunteered to help with an event regardless of what it was for, your help in the annual Taste of Elegance event always mean’t that it would run smoothly.
You will be missed and never forgotten, because you have always given of yourself to make our world a better place.

Being in the produce business, I have known Peter and worked with him for a long time. Peter was always such a great person with a kind soul. I looked forward to receive his calls to place his orders. He was always making humor of situations and life itself. When thru business you talk to someone for so many years, they become friends and I consider as family . Peter will be missed by many and for sure by his Liberty Fruit Produce family. I am glad I had the honor of working with him and knowing him. God Bless and prayers to all of his family
