Obituary……………Richard A. Hauff
A lover of country, church, and Carol, his wife of twenty years, Dick Hauff cherished all until his quiet death on December 9, 2019. Born November 18, 1940, and raised near Philadelphia, he graduated West Chester and Temple Universities, became a Navy Seal, and subsequently a pilot for Northwest Airlines. Retirement to Florida brought the chance for much fun and worldwide travel including visits to see Pop Pop's grandchildren in Hawaii.
Dick remained strong in his faith so it is most fitting that a memorial mass will be held in his honor on January 11, 2020, 12:30 PM, at Our Lady of Light Catholic Community Church in Estero, Florida.
