Obituary of Orville Hauck

Orville Dale Hauck was born June 15th, 1942 to Alvin and Lea (Winckler) Hauck.  He was baptized July 26, 1942 and confirmed at the Ebenezer Reformed Church in Menno, SD.  He attended Handel Country School and graduated from Menno High School in 1960.

After serving in the Air National Guard for a brief period, Orville returned home and married Josephine Misar on February 27, 1967 at Salem Reformed Church in Menno, SD.  Orville and Jo took over the family farm southeast of Menno and raised chickens, hogs, cattle, corn and soybeans until Orville’s retirement earlier this year. To this union Jo and Orville were blessed with 4 sons: Brian, Alan, Gary and John. 

Orville served on the Menno Rural Fire Department, Molan Township, and several local cooperative boards for many years. Orville, being a lifelong member of the Peace Christian Reformed Church of Menno, SD where he enjoyed singing in the choir, attending bible studies, served as deacon, elder, and other offices of the church.

Orville and Jo enjoyed collecting and showing Oliver tractors over the years. They were active members of the Tri-state Old Iron Tractor Club, Great Plains Oliver Club, and the Menno Pioneer Power Show. They enjoyed attending club activities and went on as many tractor rides as time allowed.

Orville’s pride and joy were his family.  He enjoyed the times everyone could be together as a family, working on the farm.  He will be remembered for his talent of meeting people at auctions, social gatherings, a store, then years later being able to renew acquaintances.

Orville is survived by his four sons and their families: Brian (Gina, Shailyn Bench, Shamae Bench and Joshua) Hauck of Volin, SD, Alan (Deb & Kate) Hauck of Viborg, SD, Gary (Ashley, Aiden and McKenzie Harvey) Hauck of Fulshear, TX, and John (Jen, Ethan and Addysen) Hauck of Beresford, SD. He also leaves behind a sister, Darlene Tiesen of Sioux Falls, SD; sister-in-law, Evelyn Misar of Sioux City, IA; 2-brothers-in-law, Elmer Misar of Yankton, SD and Melvin (Mary) Misar of Tyndall, and several nieces and nephews.

Orville was preceded in death by his wife, Josephine; his parents, Alvin and Lea Hauck, and brother-in-law, Bert Tiesen.
