ASHBURN, Va. — Michael Philip Hahn, 63, of Ashburn, passed away on Monday, April 8, 2013, at his home following a year-long battle with brain cancer.

He was born and raised in Lancaster, Pa., a son of Helen A. Hahn and the late William C. Hahn.

Michael graduated from Lancaster Catholic High School in 1967 and received a bachelor of science degree in education from Duquesne University in 1971. In 1976, he was awarded a master’s degree in business administration from the College of William and Mary. He was a veteran of the Army, where he served as a captain in the Military Police Corps from 1971 to 1978.

Michael retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a supervisory special agent in June 2001 after 23 years of service. During his career with the bureau, he served in the Cincinnati, New York and Philadelphia divisions and retired from FBI headquarters.
