Timothy F. Hannon

November 27, 1956 - January 13, 2024

Visitation: Thursday, January 18, 2023, 3-7 pm; Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry Township

Service: Private Family Blessing Service

Timothy Francis Hannon passed away peacefully at his home in Freedom, PA, at age 67, on January 13, 2024. He was surrounded by his wife and loving family. He was the son of the late James and Vivian Hannon and nephew of beloved uncles, William (Bill) and Richard (Dick) Hannon.

Tim was a graduate of the California State University, with a degree in science. It was here he met his wife, Karen, after becoming study partners in sophomore chemistry class. They became partners in life and were married for 42 years.

After a year in education, Tim moved into the pharmaceutical industry, where he worked for over 30 years. These companies included A.H. Robbins, Glaxo, Amgen, and Biogen. He was admired for his expertise and integrity in the field and forged lifelong friendships with his colleagues.

Family and faith were at the core of Tim’s heart. He was raised in a lively home in the North Hills, one of seven children. He was incredibly close with his siblings, who always loved, supported, and championed one another. He was an avid lover of the outdoors and sports. Tim enjoyed many boating outings on the river with his Uncle Dick and developed his love of golf from his Uncle Bill. After retirement, he particularly enjoyed fishing, hiking at North Park, and golfing at Connoquenessing Country Club with his forever golf pals.

Tim was an incredible writer and storyteller, often sharing tales with a special twinkle in his eye. His final message, in his own words: “I leave this life with no regrets. It was a life filled with blessings. Loving and loyal family and friends, adventure, and opportunity. Everything that makes life worth living. I am sad to leave. But I leave with the knowledge it was a life rich with love, given, but mostly received. The peace of the Lord be with you!”

Tim is survived by his beloved wife, Karen; his cherished daughter, Emily Caruso (Michael), and his adored granddaughter, Isabella (who called him “Pappy,” his favorite title on earth). Loving brother of Patrick, Paul, John (Jill), Brian (Karen), Holly Hugo (Brett), and Jim (Tracey). Uncle to Ally Dodds (Will, Julian), Mary Hannon, Hannah Sheldon (Ryan), Rachel Maloney (Dan), Will Hugo (Caitlyn), Joe Hannon, Tom Hannon, Ryan Hannon, Sean Hannon, Caitlin Glagola (Cam, Cooper), and Abbey Iobst.

Family and friends are welcome  on Thursday, January 18th from 3-7 p.m. at Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry Township, 2678 Rochester Road, Cranberry Township.  Service will be private.

    Tim and I were colleagues for many years at Biogen. He was considered top of the class and was what good looked like. He showed up with passion for the people that he worked with and even greater passion for the patients that he helped. He was missed when he retired from the organization. He was a mentor to me in many ways and I learned a great deal from him. May God’s loving arms encircle your family and may you all rest in the palms of His great almighty hands.
