Eli Phillip Hanak

Eli Phillip Hanak, 5, of Candia, was welcomed home into the arms of our Lord and Savior on July 1, 2019.

Eli was born on March 15, 2014 in Nashua, the son of Phillip and Hannah (Gurney) Hanak. He loved to play outdoors, catching frogs and caterpillars. He enjoyed eating sticks of butter and showing his muscles. But most of all, he enjoyed being a big brother. Everyone who knew Eli absolutely loved him. He lit up every room with his mischievous smile and puppy dog eyes. He was the epitome of pure love. Eli’s soul is one of the rarest, most beautiful with a lot of sweetness little bit of spice. Eli may have been only 5, but had the strength of a 10 year old, and a heart unmatched by any. He will be missed every day until we are all reunited in Gods kingdom.

Eli is survived by his parents; two brothers, Jack William Hanak and Carson Ward Hanak both of Candia; his maternal grandparents, William and Charlotte Gurney of Candia; his paternal grandparents, James and Susan Hanak of Raymond; and aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.

A gathering and celebration of Eli’s life will take place on Saturday from 4 PM to 7 PM at Phaneuf Funeral Homes and Crematorium, 243 Hanover St. Manchester. A Memorial Service will be held for Eli at Manchester Christian Church on Monday at 10:00 AM, 1308 Wellington Rd, Manchester.
