Paul Hausmann

July 19, 2016


Paul Stephen Hausmann, age 54, died peacefully at the lake, one of his favorite places.

Paul was born on June 9, 1962, in Hillsboro to Clarice “Kelly” Hausmann; his father, Kenneth Hausmann, died shortly before Paul’s birth. Paul was raised by his mother and step-father, Ron Mehl, and attended school in Hillsboro through his graduation in 1980. He defied death in 1985 when he split a deer in half with a motorcycle, an event that he continued to acknowledge annually for the rest of his life. The most significant moment of his life came with the birth of his son, Matthew, on April 22, 1990.

He worked at various places around Hillsboro throughout his life, including Rick’s Grocery, Sorum Oil, Granny’s Bar, Cummings Ag Inc., CHS, and Sanford Medical Center, which was also where he was born – his frequent joke being that he “didn’t make it far in life.” His coworkers and customers will miss his warm smile, quick wit, and shenanigans.

Paul was a proud father and soon-to-be grandfather; he took great pride in sharing his favorite activities with Matthew, especially teaching him to shoot, and was excitedly anticipating the birth of his first grandchild. He enjoyed collecting and shooting guns, listening to Alice Cooper, watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and sitting by a bonfire full of Christmas lights whenever possible. He loved to see people react to his off-color humor.

He is survived by his son, Matthew (Jessica) Hausmann, Hillsboro; brother, Charles Hausmann, Hillsboro; nephew, Christopher (Sherie) Hausmann and his sons Dylan and Ryan, Virginia Beach, VA; nephew, Kewal (Richard McEntee) Hausmann, Austin, TX; niece, Clarice “Kelly” (Joel) Hausmann-Martinez and her son Cash, Linn, TX; godchildren Cassandra Doran, Jannika Drennan, and Andrew and Jonathon Weibye; and life-long friends/second family Mike & Jackie Munter and their daughters, Wahpeton. He was preceded in death by his father, mother, step-father, and various extended relatives.

Paul, you will be sorely missed by the community and all who knew you, but we will not mourn alone; there are uncountable memories of you that we will share together. Your presence cannot be replaced, and we appreciate all the time we had with you, however long or short. May you rest in peace.
