Peter F. Hanrahan
Sep 27,1927---Nov 04,2017

It is with great sadness that the family of Peter F. Hanrahan announces his passing on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at St. Luke’s Hospice House in Kansas City, Missouri. 

 

Peter (Pete) was born on September 27, 1927 in Schenectady, New York during the greatest generation. He was a devoted son to his father, Peter T. and mother, Anna and a beloved brother to Joseph, Edward, and Maureen.  He attended college in Albany, New York graduating with a degree in Business Administration.  He served in the United States Army Air Corp spending most of his time in the Pacific Theater at the end of World War II.  Peter was a successful businessman with a 50 year career in the ice cream/ confectionery business.  He worked for Sealtest Ice Cream, and as a sales manager for Whitman’s Chocolates in the New England area.  He moved his family to Kansas City when he became the Vice President of Sales for Russell Stover Candies.  He held similar titles and roles with Fanny Farmer’s Candy and Price Candies.  Pete was also devoted to his church, St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church.  He was an active parish member for over 35 years serving on the Finance Council, as a Head Usher and Eucharistic Minister. 

 

Peter married his childhood sweetheart, Jeanne Ann Ramsey, in 1950 in Burlington, Vermont.  They celebrated 47 years of marriage before her death in 1997. He was committed to life with her, the gift of family, a strong work ethic and the celebration of his children’s achievements.  Peter also loved vacations to the beaches with his family and traveling with Jeanne.  He exhibited a genuine love that was kind and tenderhearted to all.  Time with family and friends was what he valued, including his weekly jaunts with the “Coffee Boys”.  Family and friends who knew him well will miss him and remember him fondly. 

 

Peter was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Jeanne, daughter Patricia Horner, and brother, Edward.  Left to honor his loss yet celebrate his life are his children, Jack (Vicki), Donna O’Reilly (Edward), son-in-law Rick Horner, Peter Jr. (Patty), Penny (Don) and grandchildren Kelli Minatta (Ryan), Fallon O’Reilly, Rachel Hanrahan, Jillian Hanrahan, Cullen Horner, and Anna Turnbull.

 

Peter will forever be in our hearts and we will cherish his courageous example of how to live life and appreciate each and every day.  The Memorial Mass will be held Thursday, November 30, 2017 at St. Thomas More Parish, 11822 Holmes Road, Kansas City, Missouri.  Visitation is from 4:30pm with a funeral mass following at 5:30pm.

 

Our sincere gratitude to Ms. Kembra  Eubank, RN, Ms. Mary McCormick, RN, Dr. Sharon Snavely, MD, Dr. Jay Riseman, MD for their outstanding care and compassion over the years.  Our father loved you and we all thank you.

 

A private family internment will take place in Mt. Olivet Cemetery at a later date, uniting our mother with our father for all eternity.

Peter will so be missed, my favorite thing about him was his "kind and tenderhearted" nature and I hope and pray that over the weeks and months your emptiness will be gradually replaced with those fond and wonderful memories
