MIKE HANNAH: A loss to the industry
Mike Hannah had a long and distinguished career in travel. He was a senior executive at P.Lawson Travel, Sears Travel and President of UFTA. He was a longtime highly valued member of the Skal Toronto Club and a member of the executive board. He was a familiar presence at the monthly meetings and his experience and expertise proved invaluable over the years.
Mike suffered a massive heart attack three weeks ago and died on Saturday at St. Mike’s Hospital in Toronto. It was the second tragedy for his family as Ann, his wife of 50 years, died just last September.
Mike loved the industry he served so well and for so long. He had a fine sense of humour, loved a round or two of golf with his friends, and enjoyed a glass of red wine. He was especially devoted to his family especially his grandchildren.
In a thoughtful gesture that Mike, an avid golfer and a member of the Lambton Golf Club for many years, would surely have loved, in his memory and to honour his long membership and service, Skal Toronto and Skal Toronto North’s annual Golf Tournament taking place this year on August 23rd at the Royal Ontario Golf Course will be named the ‘Mike Hannah Memorial Golf Tournament.’
