To all family and friends my sincerest condolences.
We were Army mates since we first met in 1971. A great mentor and friend. It was Hanna who nominated me for my OAM and guided me throughout my career.
Hanna was a strong supporter and member of the Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers ( RAEME) NSW Association, on behalf of the President and all members, our condolences to the family. May he Rest In Peace.

Hanna was an amazing man with a heart as big as a house. His love and care for Scott and Mika in their time of need was immensely appreciated by Elaine, Donna and Paul. Our hearts are with you today even though we were unable to honour Hanna in person. We will always remember him with a smile and much love. Scott and Lou were very lucky to have him as their friend.

Graham Kevin (Jack) Greensays:

I first met Elvin (Hanna) at primary School . From memory, the first day he was so happy to meet another pupil that he picked me up and swung me around. (I was slighter than he) we became instant mates and that continued through to high school as well. We did meet occasionally after he had joined the army but we drifter apart and were never close beyond then. However, I still have fond memories of our schooling at Goonellabah Public School and Richmond River High School and they will remain with me until!. Rest in peace my old friend.
