    To all my extended Hahn brothers and sisters. My heart is hurt to hear the news of Dad’s passing. Memories of the many hours I spent at your home hanging out, playing on the train trestle, shooting hoops and all the things kids did. I’ll never forget the sacrifice of time your father happily made in coaching our basketball team. I learned much more than how to pass, dribble and shoot but the foundations of sportsmanship and team.
    I also remember when he stepped up to voice his displeasure how things were conducted at CYO football and the fact he was always looking out for all of us, not just his boys.
    You guys had the big family like we did and it takes a special man to raise them successfully. I will have the most fondest memories and respect for your Dad ( our Dad)! Love to all of you.
    Patrick Mercado

    To all the Hahn children and family,
    My condolences on the loss of your father. Any person who was willing to spend so much of his time coaching others deserves a special spot in heaven. I’m sure you will miss him terribly but the fond memories will take over and stay with you forever.

    I’m sure that your dad and my dad are already playing a game of pickup basketball, my dad with that ugly hook shot, and your dad with that sweet jumper.

    Please know that your dad impacted a lot of lives during his lifetime and left all of us with some great memories.

    I was associated with and worked with “Chuck” from 1962 through 1987 as a fellow investigator with the CSC and the OPM. Chuck claimed that he was senior to me in service as he started with the CSC in Cleveland the same day that I started in Chicago so that he had 1 hour of seniority.
    We were on numerous “details” together, often sharing living quarters. Chuck was always a gentleman in everything thaqt he did. He always invited me to accompany him to church on Sunday mornings. I never did but wish now that I had done so.
    Please accept my condolences .
