One Punch Homicide of Kevin Duran Hanes – 1998

Dorothy Bertha DENHAM (6) was born on the 23rd November 1899 in Springhill, MB. D. in February 1991 in Illinois, USA at the age of 92 years. She was married twice. First to Unknown Vinette; Second to George Harold Condon (1899-1971). In August 1923, Dorothy’s address was Armstrong, BC but she was a resident of the Bethal Sanitarium in Calgary, Alberta. She was probably not a patient but a nurse-in-training. From 1917 to 1925, the Bethal Sanitarium occupied a two-storey main building with 31 rooms and several outbuildings on a 23 acre piece of land at Bowness Park. It was known to treat between 200 and 400 patients per year. This Sanitarium offered nurses training in affiliation with one of the Seventh-day Adventist schools of nursing in the United States. It was likely here where Dorothy trained as a nurse; on her immigration form for entry into the USA in 1938, her occupations was listed as “trained nurse”. She became a naturalized US citizen in 1942. They had one known child; Dorothy Marie Frances Condon (1934-1969). Dorothy Condon married James Arthur HANES (1934-2004) circa 1955. Their sons; Patrick James; Kevin Duran Hanes (1957-1998). Kevin was the victim of a One-Punch Homicide on the 25th July 1998. ☺☺

    There is one error in this narrative.
    “Dorothy Condon married James Arthur HANES (1934-2004) circa 1955. They had one son; Kevin Duran Hanes (1957-1998). Kevin was the victim of a One-Punch Homicide on the 25th July 1998.”
    Dorothy and James had two sons, Patrick James Hanes and Kevin Duran Hanes.

    • Thank you Holly, I did not know that

        I have passed a link to this on to Patrick, who is interested in his family history. I’m his first cousin on his father’s side of the family, and the family genealogist. He’s very excited to be able to explore this additional information.

      • I look forward to following up on some of the Denham side of my family. My kids will be thrilled to finally have some information from my mothers side of the family.
