Hanna, Sr and the late Gertrude Hanna. He grew up in Winnsboro alongside his close cousin, the late Sam Hanna. Henry joined the Marines and was deployed to Korea from 1954-1956. When he left active service, he moved to Monroe, Louisiana where he made a career as an insurance salesman. He married his sweetheart, Joe Marie Ellett on July 15th, 1972.

Ellett of West Monroe; nephews, David Ellett and wife Katrina of New Caney, TX, and Darin Ellett and wife Stephanie of West Monroe; niece, Diana Ellett Butler and husband Tom of Franklin, TN.
