Dwayne “Gus” Hann, a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend was called to Heaven on March 22, 2021. He was surrounded with love by his wife and children who will continue to honor his legacy by living their lives to the fullest.
Dwayne was born on January 7, 1947 to Gladys and Leon Hann in Marion, Indiana. Dwayne spent most of his childhood in Marion alongside his parents and older brother, Don Hann. Dwayne was a member of the 1965 Marion Giants basketball team which was inducted in 2019 into the Grant County Hall of Fame. He met his wife, Cyndy at Marion High School at the age of sixteen. They both went on to Indiana University where Dwayne, a proud Hoosier earned his Bachelor’s Degree and MBA.
Dwayne and Cyndy were married in August of 1969 and were later blessed with three children, Brian, Betsy and Katie. Dwayne had a lengthy and successful career in the pharmaceutical industry for 43 years that began in Indiana and led him to New Jersey before retiring to Scottsdale, Arizona.
It was the simple pleasures in life that brought Dwayne the most joy. He truly enjoyed spending time reminiscing with friends, was passionate about watching IU sports, enjoyed riding his bike, golfing and loved a good glass of scotch. Most importantly, he loved spending time with his family and seven grandchildren. This brought Dwayne the most joy in his life.
Dwayne’s kindness, smile and boisterous laugh will be greatly missed but never forgotten. He is survived by his wife Cyndy of 51 years, his son Brian (his wife Cortney and their children Lily, Gus and Max), daughter Betsy (her husband Jon and their children Jacob and Molly), and daughter Katie (her husband Tony and their children, Ben and Emma.)
