PORTLAND — George Edward Hannon Jr., 83, of Scarborough, died Oct. 30, at the Baron Center, after a long illness.

He was born Feb. 25, 1932, in Limington, the son of George Edward and Irene Beatrice (England) Hannon Sr. He proudly served in the Navy in the fighting Seabees during the Korean War.

Hannon married Janice Edna Wight, of Gorham, on March 17, 1958.

He was an avid sportsman and former Maine Guide for L.L. Bean. He was truly a man for all seasons: fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and ice fishing. Hannon was an independent contractor and land developer with developments scattered throughout southern Maine, and streets named after him and his immediate family. He was active in community affairs and was a prominent fixture at Casco Days, which he looked forward to with gusto and enjoyed annually. He was also a member of the Blue Point Congregational Church in Scarborough.

Hannon was predeceased by his wife; his parents; and two brothers, Earnest and Donald Hannon.

He is survived by two sisters, Mary Rogers and Teresa Hale; two daughters, Terry Kerwin of Columbia, Tennessee and Debbie St. Pierre of Old Orchard Beach; a son, Edward Hannon of Poland; his devoted friend, Evelyn DiPietro, of Scarborough; seven grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and nieces and nephews.

Memorial services were held Nov. 4 at A.T. Hutchins Funeral and Cremation Services in Portland, with the Rev. Marcia Charles of Blue Point Congregational Church officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Alzheimer’s Association of Maine, 383 US Route One #2C, Scarborough, ME 04074.
