Jeffery “Jeff” Hanwell
A “Good Egg” -
Jeffery “Jeff” Wade Hanwell, age 49, of Etters, and formerly of Northern Cambria, passed away on Monday, April 11, 2022. Jeff was born on Thursday, June 29, 1972, in Barnesboro to Sandra “Sandy” Lee (Davis) Hanwell and the late Donald Hanwell.
Jeff’s survivors include his loving wife of 24 years, Angela “Angie” Faith (Adams) Hanwell; his mother, Sandra “Sandy” Lee (Davis) Hanwell of Northern Cambria; his two brothers: Joseph “Joe” Allen Hanwell and his wife, Sherry, of Camp Hill and Daniel “Dan” Lee Hanwell and his wife, Tracey, of Harrisburg; and several nieces and nephews.
Jeff graduated from Northern Cambria High School as part of the class of 1990 and he attended Harrisburg Area Community College. He worked for Penske Truck Leasing as a mechanic. Jeff deeply enjoyed biking and riding motorcycles. He often went on long rides, camping along the way, with his longest ride being 800 miles in one day. Jeff liked to kayak in the ocean and loved adventuring with Angie. Together they biked The Great Allegheny Passage and camped at The Dry Tortugas in Fort Jefferson. Jeff was always on the go, couldn’t sit still and could fix anything; if he needed something, he made it. He had an interest in airplanes and enjoyed going to airplane museums. Jeff was always available to help, whether he was asked to or not, and was known as a “good egg”.
