November 25, 2014Aunt Ute, Arnavaz, Hansi and Corrine and family. Uncle Johnny was an inspiration to me. Though his military service kept him distant while I was growing up, whenever I was with him he was an example to me of what a good husband and strong father should be, someone to look up to, which I makes it that much more painful that gone from us now, that he was such a good man. I will carry his memory in my heart forever and follow his example the best I can. I was always proud of him. I love you all and wish you peace.~William Hauschild, Jr., McHenry, IL

November 22, 2014No words can effectively summarize what my Dad meant to me or define the man he was. He would help anyone. He treated every with respect. He wouldn’t label someone without knowing them. He surpassed goodness and only wanted the same in return. I’m going to miss him more than I can say. I wish I could have been stronger for him, I wish I could have carried him through the roughest of waters just to get him to the shore of bliss that he so deserved. I love him, I’m thankful for him.~John Charles Hauschild Jr., Waupun, WI
