HANNAH, JAMES ALEC – Jim, Tank, Craigy, Big Timothy, Husband, Dad, Grampa; a man of many names and one big heart. A native of Randolph, he passed away November 9; he gave us his best throughout his fulfilling life. His loving smile and spirit of giving will be remembered warmly by his family: wife Betsy Hannah; children Timothy and Michelle Hannah, Rachael and Paul Stone, Shanon and Eddy Christenson; seven grandchildren; and mother Mary Jacobs. His love of hammock relaxing and camp living will be remembered fondly by siblings John and Paula Hannah, Joel and Laura Hannah, Judy and Dale Brown, Cheryl and Mike Leclair, and Sheila Jacobs. He joins his fellow prankster and brother Jeffery to explore new ways to make us laugh. He can now share his love of mystery novels with his sister Jane and ponder on “who done it.” As “Tank,” there are many legendary stories to tell of his exploits, starting long before he graduated in 1969 from Braintree Randolph Union High School. Jim married his soulmate, Betsy, in 1971 and always found a way to provide the best for his family. An avid snowmobiler, he loved winter and enjoyed any day that he was out on the trails. He had many tidbits of information and was a master fix-it man. He enjoyed helping others, especially children. He taught many in the art of machine mechanics at the technical school and in many friends’ garages. He was a joyful host and loved to entertain at the pond, camp and wherever he might be relaxing with his friends and family. He loved the Randolph community and participating in all aspects of its entire local flavor.
