Arnold Lee Hannum
December 1, 1946 – July 29, 2022
Arnold Lee Hannum, 75, of Spring Creek, Nevada passed away Friday, July 29, 2022, with his loving family by his side. He was born December 1, 1946, in Indiana to the late Arnold and Wanda Hannum. Lee served in the United States Navy in the south pacific from 1964 to 1967 on the USS Boyd. Following his service in the Navy, he worked in the mining industry in Wyoming and Nevada. Lee was an avid reader of historical non-fiction novels, which his family spent many hours tracking down as they were often the only thing on his Christmas wish list besides new slippers and a bag of walnuts.
Lee is survived by his wife, Peggy (Mayfield) Hannum, whom he married August 20, 1971; sister, Sue Alexander of Elko, NV; son, Thomas Hannum of Spring Creek, NV; daughter, Leah Hannum of Boise, ID; grandson, James (Haley) Hannum of Boise, ID; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Gary Alexander.
A celebration of life is planned for this fall. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to K9s For Warriors or to the donor’s choice.
Arrangements are under the direction of Bowman Funeral Parlor of Garden City.
