Karl B. Hauck

December 7, 1934 — April 6, 2022

HAUCK, Karl B., aged 87 of Cincinnati, passed away peacefully on Wednesday April 6, 2022.  Karl was a 1952 Graduate of Roger Bacon High School, after which he served honorably in the U.S. Navy aboard the U.S.S. Stoddard In the Korean War.  Upon returning to Cincinnati, Karl earned the first of multiple degrees from Xavier University and embarked upon his lifelong devotion of educating young minds, first at his Alma Mater, and then for the next 38 years as a mainstay with the Social Studies department at St. Xavier High School.  The streets of Cincinnati and multiple other locations are filled with men whose minds were molded by Karl’s gifts.  Karl lived life to its fullest, dabbling with fervor at painting, carpentry, wine-making (all with minimal success) but also with his true passions: WWII history, travel, and his family.  He took special pride in his 18 grandchildren and traveled far and wide to attend their games, performances and academic endeavors.  Karl’s second ‘career’ was centered around volunteerism, both as the founding Archivist at St X, as well as a 20 year volunteer at Matthew 25 Ministries, packing boxes and dispensing advice to the younger generation.  Karl was preceded in death by his parents Bernard Hauck and Florence (Bothe) Hauck, his brothers Roger and Dick, and the love of his life and soulmate, his wife of 50 years, Patricia (Williams).  He is survived by his children: Andrew (Stephanie Trautman), Barbara (Tom Riddle), Amy (Pam Roehling), Emily (David Yungblut) and Alex (Katie Crowley), as well as his grandchildren: Nick (Paula), Patrick, Sam, Isabel (John Berdux), Cooper (Autumn), Jack, Annie (Jake Spurgeon), Claire, Alex, Sophie, Charlotte, Lucy, Pete, Jack, Will, Henry, Caroline and Emma.  Karl will be remembered fondly by his friends, his St X family, his Matthew 25 family, and the scores of former students his life positively influenced.  Special thanks to the staff at the Lodge Rehab Center for providing him comfort in his final days. Visitation will be held on Saturday, April 16th from 9:00 AM until service at 10:00 AM, with reception immediately following, all at The Chapel of the Holy Companions, St. Xavier High school, 600 W North Bend Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45224. In lieu of flowers, Karl asked that remembrances be made to either The Karl and Trish Hauck Endowment Fund, c/o St Xavier High School, or Matthew 25 Ministries. Condolences at hodappfuneralhome.com
