Brian Hahn Obituary, Death- Players in the sport of cornhole are a close-knit community who value friendship and sportsmanship, therefore the loss of a fellow player is felt deeply. “The Monarch,” Brian Hahn, was more than just a rival of cornhole players. Friends and family of Brian, who died in a car crash on Highway 105 South outside of Austin, remember him with deep sorrow. All who have ever thrown bags with Brian speak highly of the experience. His dominating court presence and contagious enthusiasm for the game earned him the moniker “The Monarch.”
Brian had a knack for turning up the pressure and making everyone laugh, whether the setting was a serious tournament or a casual game in the backyard. One of Brian’s cornhole buddies once said, “Every time we’re teammates, the 1st through 3rd place winners were the only ones who beat us; I’ll be your partner anytime I’m available.” These words speak to Brian’s fierce competitive nature as well as his unwavering dedication to his friends and community. There’s more to it than just tossing a few bags around when playing cornhole. Brian Hahn exemplified these traits to perfection. His passion for the game was clear in every delivery, but it was his positive manner and loyalty to the group that won over the fans and his peers.
As word of Brian’s departure spreads, sorrow is felt by all. The team will be short-handed in upcoming games and tournaments without him. Those who knew Brian off the court also have fascinating tales to tell. Since the accident that killed Brian, his cornhole relatives have been there for each other unconditionally. When a member of this tight-knit group experiences adversity, the others in the community come together to help. The abrupt loss of a loved one can serve as a sobering reminder of the fragility of life and the need to cherish every moment and relationship.
Because of what happened to Brian Hahn, the entire cornhole subculture has been shattered. With little coverage in the mainstream media, community members have resorted to one another to remember and mourn Brian. Don’t simply remember Brian as a skilled cornhole player; remember him for the joy and friendship he brought to the game. In the hereafter, I pray that Brian Hahn (The Monarch) wins his final cornhole match. Your unique throwing style will be sorely missed, but your teammates will always hold a special place in their hearts for you.
