Peter E. Hankish, 82, of Perrysburg, Ohio died Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at Kingston surrounded by his loving family. He was the youngest of seven born to the late, Charles M. and Sophia (Giha) Hankish, Sr in Bluffton, Ohio on February 10, 1932.
Pete was drafted into the U. S. Army on July 3, 1952 during the Korean War where he served in the United States Army. After the war he attended John Carroll University and then completed his degree at Bowling Green State University. On September 5, 1959 he married the late, Naomi A. Arbogast and together they raised their three children. Pete went into sales, where he eventually was an independent sale's representative. But his favorite job was the one he had when he worked at his father's confectionery store, where many memories were shared with family and friends as he carried on the tradition of making candy canes, peanut brittle, caramels and other sweets.
You could often find Pete watching sports where he loved watching his favorite teams the Buckeyes, the Cleveland Browns and the Indian's. He also enjoyed bowling. Pete was very active with his kids when they were younger in the Perrysburg Youth Football where he served in many different capacities from the refreshment booth to serving as the President. In his later years, he loved watching his grandkids play sports and was very proud of them.
Pete is survived by his daughter, Debra Hankish; sons, Steven (Cheryl) and Timothy (Kathleen) Hankish; grandchildren, Joshua (Michelle), Stephanie, Jacob, Luke, Abby and Mark Hankish; sister, Ruth (Jim) Baderscher.
