Monty Lee Hanna

September 2, 1961 ~ September 2, 2021 (age 60)

Obituary

Monty Lee Hanna of Sweeny, Texas went to be with his Lord on Thursday, September 2, 2021 on his 60th birthday.  He was born on September 2, 1961 in Victoria, Texas to Ray Albert and Daisy May Hanna.  Monty was raised in Sweeny, Texas where he made many long and lasting relationships.

 Monty was a proud member of the Sweeny High School class of 1980.  It is here where he met the love of his life, Terri Rayburn, and the two were married in 1982.  These two kids started with nothing but love.  As Monty loved to say, ‘We started with nothing and we still have most of it!”

Their two children, Chad Michael and Kevin Lee were raised in a great legacy of love from Monty and Terri that included football, music, concerts, fishing and family gatherings.  Nothing brought Monty more joy that the sound of the little feet of his three grandchildren running to see him.

After high school, Monty worked at Rhone Poulenc and attended college at night to earn his instrumentation degree. He later went to work for Phillips 66 and worked for 21 years and retired as an Instrument Planner. He loved that he was following in his father’s career path.

After his retirement, Monty, filled his time with piano lessons, jam sessions with his brother, Alan, and friends, playing music with his son, and having breakfast with Barney Lowery and the crew at the Bulldog.

He enjoyed making memories with his friends and family.  He loved his time at his place at Chinquapin fishing with his family and especially his cousin, Joe Thompson and his grandson, Austin, from Illinois.  Each year, Monty lovingly traveled with his mother to the Thompson family reunion in Illinois.

Monty knew Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior and would boldly speak of it to anyone who was searching.

Monty is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Terri Rayburn Hanna, his sons, Chad Hanna and wife Cheryl, Kevin Hanna and wife, Ashley.  His mother, Daisy Hanna, brothers Alan Hanna (Pam), Steve Hanna, sister Linda Hanna (Glen), grandsons, Hunter Ray Hanna, Colton James Hanna and granddaughter, Cheyenne Elizabeth Hanna and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins whom he loved dearly.

Monty is preceded in death by his father, Ray Hanna, father-in-law Bobby Rayburn, and brother-in-law Ricky Rayburn, and granddaughter, Liberty Allane Hanna.
