Carl W. Hausheer

After graduating from Xavier High School and attending General Motors Institute, Carl served in the US Army in Korea. Upon returning home, he married his lovely bride of 62 years, Margie Hausheer and was the loving father of their four children, Carl, Doranne, Anne Marie and Ruth and his eleven grandchildren. He is known and beloved by his many nieces and nephews for his quick smile, laughing eyes and wearing the most colorful socks to the party.
Since 1965, he served faithfully as a lector at Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish and then at Our Lady Help of Christians. He was honored for his volunteer efforts to beautify High Rock Park in creating and tending a garden for all to enjoy, for assisting the Greenbelt Conservancy's Halloween Walk, for his many service hours delivering meals for Meals on Wheels, for helping the Boys Scouts build a lodge at Pouch Camp, and for serving on the Board of Directors of the Visiting Nurse Association of Staten Island. He later volunteered for Staten Island University Hospital in the rehabilitation department.
The family requests, that, in lieu of flowers, charitable donations be offered to American Diabetes association, http://www.diabetes.org/ or other benevolent causes.

I remember years ago walking on the treadmill in our clubhouse gym next to Carl. Unknowingly, I dropped something from my fannypack while moving at a fast pace. This wonderful gentleman, probably 25 years my senior, stopped his machine, bent all the way over and down, to retrieve the forgotten object! I never forgot this act of chivalry and courtesy, especially in light of a potentially hazardous situation. After that, and as I grew to know Carl, I experienced a great fondness and warmth for this kind, likeable man. What a blessing his life must have been to so many people. Surely, he left his mark on this world.

Carl was a fine gentleman with whom we had the honor of being friends. He always had a friendly smile and offered a helping hand. He will be sorely missed not only by his family and friends but by our entire community.

I am so sad to hear of the loss of Carl Hausheer. He was a dear friend to Parents and he always greeted me with a warm smile. I always enjoyed his humor and will always remember him as a snappy dresser and a lover of travel and adventures! My heart goes out to Margie and his children. He will be deeply missed. I know he is out there watching over us all and continuing to travel in our hearts and our memories! Godspeed and Bon Voyage Carl enjoy cruising with the angels and send my love to my parents who I am sure were there to greet you. HUGS! Georgine

Iíve had the pleasure of calling Carl friend since moving to the Tides about 7 years ago. In fact he was the first person to greet Ann and I when we attended the first social event. What a great guy and true gentleman .
Heíll be terribly missed in our community. He was loved by all.
