Christopher Richard Hahn- born May 15th, 1970, beloved son of Richard and Darlene Hahn, and cherished brother of Sheila (Barry) Chartrand, peacefully returned home to the arms of his Lord Jesus Christ on February 19th, 2024. He leaves behind many family members and friends who love him very much and take comfort in their fond memories of him.

Chris’ fondest childhood memories included summers spent with family, either at home, or travelling to various favorite locations- Waskesiu and Florida being his most cherished destinations to reflect on with his sister. During his early adult years, Chris was an accomplished professional boxer and sparring partner throughout Canada and the United States.  Later years included contributions to various fields including competitive fitness training, youth sports mentoring, filmography, oil and construction. Chris enjoyed many years of adventurous travel to various far-reaching parts of the world, leaving his family and close friends now grateful for the many digital journals he created along the way. Chris had a lifelong appreciation for humor, often contributing to the ease of others and added a unique joy to various occasions. He was most compassionate and attentive towards the less advantaged folks in our community. He did not need formal education to understand that those who are sometimes hardest to love, often need love and patience the most.

Chris’ later years were challenged with escalating symptoms of sports-related CTE, however, it did not dim his passion for certain projects he held dear, including training and mentoring youth in competitive boxing, weightlifting and hockey, his own competitive ability, and his extensive history of volunteerism throughout Western Canada. What was important to Chris did not stop at those things, as above everything, was his strong belief in God, the wellbeing and safety of children, and the love he had for the cherished family and friends he leaves behind.

A celebration of Chris’ life was held by his closest of family and friends, who gathered to honor him as he has always requested. There has been great comfort found in the many extensions of concern, sympathy and shared experiences with Chris by many who knew him all over the world, but most closely from those who loved and cared for him during his years in Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC. 

Chris is finally home and at eternal peace in the arms of his Heavenly Father. He will be forever loved and remembered here on earth. 

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Saskatoon Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation or giving of your time, in Chris’ name to the Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association:, or Saskatchewan KidSport:

If I knew

If I knew it would be the last time
That I’d see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.


If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would videotape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say “I love you,”
instead of assuming you would KNOW, I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well, I’m sure you’ll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there’s always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say “I love you,”
And certainly, there’s another chance
to say our “Anything I can do?”

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I’d like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you’re waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you’ll surely regret the day,

That you didn’t take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you’ll always hold them dear

Take time to say “! I’m sorry,”
“Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay”.
And if tomorrow never comes,
you’ll have no regrets about today.
