Francis (Frank) Joseph Hahne, Jr., 93, a native of Savannah, died peacefully April 24, 2019 at Memorial Hospital with family at his side. He was a member of St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church. He was preceded in death by his wife of over 50 years, Frances Blake Hahne.

Frank was a successful businessman and entrepreneur for over 50 years, many of those running Fran Pools. Frank lived a full life; he has been a former member of the Knights of Columbus and a Shriner. He always had a very big and generous heart of hospitality—“sit down and join us, Bubba”.
