Barry L. Hannah, 73 of Springfield, passed away on June 23, 2022, after a startlingly brief battle with cancer.

After earning his master’s degree in education from Central Missouri State University, he taught there for several years before joining Springfield Public Schools to develop the industrial technology curriculum.

He is preceded in death by his father Leslie, mother Fannie and brothers David & Doyle.
