Kelly Lee Hahn

Rev. C. Brian Bucklew
“One More Day” by Diamond Rio
“Bring on Tomorrow” by Barry Manilow
“Tears in Heaven” by Eric Clapton
Kelly Lee Hahn was born on Tuesday, December 4, 1962 to Eldon and Arlene (Lippert) Hahn at Parkston, South Dakota. He graduated from Tripp High School. He was married to Renee Keller, and to this marriage were born two children, Kalley and Derek. He met Amy VanVoorst in December of 2002 and they were engaged for many years. Over the years, Kelly worked at several jobs including Gateway, Boy’s and Girl’s Home, as a private investigator, at the Jackson Recovery Center and at the Sioux City Journal. For the eleven years prior to his death, he worked at Midstep Services. Kelly enjoyed fishing, watching horror movies, and was an avid storm chaser. He enjoyed listening to music, and Barry Manilow and Elton John were two of his favorites.
He enjoyed joking around with others and could always get a laugh out of people.  He especially enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren, and he dearly loved his beloved dog and companion, Tabby. Kelly passed away at his residence in Sioux City on Friday, December 23, 2011 at the age of 49 years and 19 days.
Kelly’s memory will be cherished by his two children and three grandchildren: daughter Kalley Fox and her children Ethan Fox and Kameryn Collyns and son Derek Hahn and his son Jase Hahn, all of Sioux City; fiancé Amy VanVoorst and son Michael VanVoorst of Sioux City; father Eldon Hahn of Tripp; sister Delilah Hahn of Scotland; two brothers: Larry (Pam) Hahn of Elizabeth, Colorado and Lennis (Kathy) Hahn of Sioux Falls; and several nieces and nephews.
Kelly was preceded in death by his mother, Arlene Hahn, and his paternal and maternal grandparents.

Kalley, Derek, My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to you and your family during these trying days and the days to come. Your Father was a great person who could always brighten up someone's day when they were feeling down. He had such a great personality and love for life.
