Hass, Larry “Hassie” R. (1 JUN 1951 - 18 JUN 2013)

Larry “Hassie” R. Hass, 62, of Colby, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 18, 2013, at his mother’s home under the tender care of Ministry Home Care Hospice surrounded by his loving family holding his hand.

A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday June 22, 2013, at First United Church of Christ in Colby. Pastor Teri Hanson will officiate. Visitation will be held from 9:00 a.m. until the time of service Saturday at the church. There will also be a Celebration of Life Tribute on Friday, June 21 from 5 until ? at the Colby Post #2227 VFW Club. The Maurina-Schilling Funeral Home in Colby is serving the family.

Larry was born on June 1, 1951, in Marshfield, the son of Reuben and Winifred (Martens) Hass. He graduated from Colby High School in 1969, and attended North Central Technical College. Larry hauled milk for a year before buying a farm in the Town of Colby in 1972. Last year he celebrated 40 years of farming. Larry loved farming and his last wish of having his crops planted was granted.

He loved working the land, John Deere tractors, tractor pulls, playing cards with the boys, four-wheeling, hunting, June Dairy Breakfasts and could not wait for Packer football. Larry especially loved his family and friends.

He was united in marriage to Marilyn (Bartnik) Luepke in 1973 whom he later divorced and to Pam (Oldham) Hass whom he also divorced.

Larry is survived by his three children, Carrie (Ernie) Kibbel, Spencer, Kimberly Hass, Spencer and Nathan (Jody) Hass, Marshfield; eight grandchildren, Karly and Carson Kibbel, Zachary, Claire, Sarah and Jacob Hass, Kayla and Victoria Cram; and his mother, Winifred Herrmann, Abbotsford. He is further survived by his two sisters, Jane (David) Pescinski and Lois (Jeff) Fischer, both of Colby; aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his father, Reuben; step-father, Richard Herrmann; and a brother, Ronald.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to First United Church of Christ or Ministry Home Care Hospice.

“We will miss his laughter and humor” - Hassie’s parting words to all “Peace.”
