Obituary for Ed Hanna

Ed Hanna “Grandpa Ed” alias.....Tommy Bishop lived life to the fullest. He was born in Table Rock, NE September 15, 1927 to Anna (Hubka) and Edd Hanna. He passed away Friday, July 28, 2017 in Lincoln, NE.

After graduating from Table Rock, he served in the occupational army in Japan using the GI Bill to get a degree in music education from Peru College. He married Betty Rademacher and on August 3 the two would have celebrated 67 years of marriage. He taught in Hamburg, IA and West Point, NE. Moving to Oakland, NE he became a State Farm agent until retiring. His love of music led him to leading “The Tommy Bishop Band” for over 60 years. He was always directing community and church choirs, musicals, State Fair Veterans’ Programs, and always organizing entertainment for various events. Community was important to him serving on so many committees, boards, clubs, too numerous to name. He was “Grandpa Ed” to anyone he met visiting, joking, and telling stories. To our family he was everything.......husband, father, Grandpa, and friend.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters; and son, Tom.

Celebrating his life are his wife, Betty; daughters, Deborah (Tim) Anderson, Teresa (Perry) Rogers; sons, Steve (Laurie) Hanna, Dan Hanna; daughter in law, Laurie Hanna; 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.

To all who knew him he would be asking you all to say Hip Hip Hurray for a life well lived.
