It is with great sadness that the family of Alfred Raymond Hauck announces his passing on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at the age of 92.
Al was born on January 1, 1931 to German immigrants from Odessa, Russia, Christ Hauck Sr. and Elizabeth Mitzel Hauck in Herreid, South Dakota. He loved growing up at the farm north of McLaughlin, South Dakota. Although the work was tough, it made him strong and with a tremendous work ethic, which he instilled in his children. Not only to work hard, but to save for the future. Many conversations would begin asking about work and how the children were doing. He loved his kids.
He moved off the farm and worked different jobs in construction and eventually worked for Equitable Life Insurance for over 40 years. He had four children (Debra, Becky, Douglas and Cindy) with his first wife, Lorraine Hauck Trim. They moved to Aberdeen, South Dakota in 1960. Al knew the value of keeping his young family busy and having fun together. They spent most weekends at different lakes boating, water skiing and camping.
In July 1970, the family moved to Denver, Colorado for better opportunities. They discovered a fabulous summer vacation destination for water skiing and camping at Lake Powell. In the winter, Al and the family learned how to snow ski, solidifying their place as an outdoor Colorado family.
Eventually, Al got remarried to Elizabeth Hartman in March 1981 and added 3 siblings to the family (Edward, Cynthia and Caroline). Al and Liz lived in Sedalia for most of their nearly 42 years together. He enjoyed working outside on their five-acre property, dancing at the German Kickers Club, traveling to different countries, camping trips with their motor home and visiting their family and friends. Their home was the perfect place to have family holidays and get togethers.
Later they moved to Castle Pines to be nearer to the children and not have the outside chores.
Al went into a memory care facility in February 2022 for dementia. He made it through COVID and Influenza breakouts there, but his health then showed a drastic decline. He still remembered his wife and children until nearly the end.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers (Christ Jr., Theodore and Edward) and his sisters (Esther Joachim, Lillian Walker and Irene Ulmer), his granddaughter Aubrey Tomlinson and grandson Bradford Zambo. He is survived by his children, his 14 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.
