HAHN, Matthew

HAHN, Matthew L.

Age 48, of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Naples, Florida, passed away peacefully Thursday, January 14, 2021, surrounded by those he loved. Matthew was born September 14, 1972, in

Greenville, Ohio, and the son of Richard L. and Gloria (Stump) Hahn of Bradford, Ohio.

Matthew was a 1991 graduate of Greenville Senior High School Greenville, Ohio, and received his bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of Dayton in 1995. During his sophomore year at UD, he proudly served as "Rudy Flyer" the college mascot at all the basketball and

football games. One of his fondest memories was sinking a half-court shot at Notre Dame to a raucous ovation. He was a founding father of the Ohio Rho Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity.

In 2008, Matthew founded Hahn Promotions

(www.hahnpromotions.com), a source for imprinted goods and custom apparel that Paula will continue operating in his memory. He loved spending time at the beach in Florida, watching the sunset, and traveling with his wife Paula.

Matthew had a smile that would light up the room.

Survivors in addition to his parents are his wife of 15 years Paula J. (McKinney) Hahn; brother Mark Hahn of Fairview Park, Ohio; step-children Matthew (Dawn) Nicely of Cincinnati and their children Everlee, Wade and Makaylah; Hailey Nicely (Travis Kemp) of Cincinnati and children Riley and Delilah; half-sister Cindy Kegley of Bethel, Ohio; nieces Madison Hahn, Melissa Hall, and Julie Thompson as well as nephew Turner Hahn.

Instead of a funeral or church service, Paula will fulfill

Matthew's final wishes of spreading his ashes in the Gulf of Mexico and dedicating a memorial bench in his honor on

Vanderbilt Beach.
