Beloved husband and partner, faithful friend to many, Lanny Ross Hissong, age 61, of Brimley, Michigan passed away Thursday morning, February 4, 2020, at his home.
Lanny was born on November 22, 1959, in Hicksville, Ohio to the late Richard and Betty (Knapp) Hissong. He graduated from Woodburn High School with the class of 1978. On May 24, 2010, he married Brendann Hascall in Woodburn, Indiana. He was a lifetime member of the Sons of American Legion. Lanny worked as a skilled welder for many years, and could handle any job no matter how complicated. Lanny also found satisfaction in crane operation.
