Joseph Ernest “J.E.” Hanna, age 79, longtime Mustang resident, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Sept. 19 at a Mustang care facility.
He was born June 10, 1940, on his grandparents’ farm southwest of Mustang to Jesse and Etta (Record) Hanna.
He grew up on the family farm and was a 1958 graduate of Mustang High School, where he excelled in business arts.

Other than a few years after retirement, when he spent a short time in Las Vegas, Joe lived his entire life in the Mustang community.
He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.
Survivors include two daughters, Nancy Jones and husband Allen of Spring, Texas, and Becci Kruger and husband Ken of Mesquite, Texas, and one son, Jeff Hanna and wife Deanna of Mustang.
