Patrick “Jason” Hannigan was born at Avera St. Luke’s Hospital in Aberdeen, SD, to Patrick and Karen (Kellogg) Hannigan. His youth was spent in Aberdeen, Webster, and Pierre. In 1982, his mom moved to Kentucky. There, Jason developed his passion for basketball and the Kentucky Wildcats. He was an exceptional athlete and made many lifelong friends and memories.
After graduating from Carlisle County High School, Kentucky, in 1987, Jason accepted a scholarship to Berea College in Kentucky. After a couple of years of academics, he made the decision to return to South Dakota to be with his sisters and his dad.
Life truly began when he met Denise Coyne in Webster, SD, and soon realized she was the love of his life. They married on February 2, 1991, and made Aberdeen their permanent home. They welcomed three children: Jared, Kelsey, and Cannon. With sports being the constant to Jason, he developed that passion in the kids, but he was most proud of what kind of people they became.
Jason’s sense of humor will be remembered by everyone. Denise was his favorite target of practical jokes for 32 years.
Jason is survived by his wife Denise; children: Jared (Cheyenne), Kelsey, and Cannon Hannigan; sisters, Tracy (Reed) St. Sauver and Lesley (Jon) Braun; brothers, Aaron (Ashley) Gunn and Ryan (Angela) Hannigan; mother, Karen Gunn; in-laws: Robert (Joyce) Coyne, Bob (Angie) Coyne, Eric (Tiffany) Coyne, and April Coyne; and many nieces and nephews.
Jason was preceded in death by his father, Patrick Hannigan; infant son, Gunner Hannigan; and sister-in-law Rhonda Coyne.
