Donald Hahn

August 30, 1930 — October 16, 2020

Wausau

Donald David Hahn, 90, of Wausau, found peace in our Savior’s arms on Friday, October 16, 2020 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

Don was born in the Wausau on August 30, 1930 to the late Albert and Helen (Janke) Hahn. He attended Trinity Lutheran School and graduated from Wausau High School in 1948. He earned a business degree before joining the United States Marine Corp on February 15, 1951. He served his country honorably in Korea earning the Good Conduct Medal, Korean Service Medal with 3 stars, United Nations Service Medal, Letter of Appreciation, and the National Defense Medal, before his honorable discharge on February 14, 1954. On October 27, 1951, he married Hazel Lemon in Tomah, Wisconsin. Together they raised three daughters, Sandra, Susan, and Julie. Hazel was called home at an early age of 55 on September 1, 1986.

Don worked as an accountant for over 45 years. When he wasn’t busy at work, he enjoyed sports of all kinds; curling, bowling, cross-country skiing, biking, and fishing and hunting at the family cottage up north. On his 50th birthday, he even biked the 70 miles to the family cottage. He loved and played tennis, teaching his daughters and later assisting at Wausau West while his grandchildren were on the teams. He also umpired Little League and kept score at Sunny Vale Softball Complex. The Packers and Brewers were also favorites of his to watch. He was a man of great faith and a life-long member of Trinity Lutheran Church. He was a dedicated father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He will live in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

Don is survived by his children, Sandra (Wayne) Flanagan, Wausau, Susan (Kendell) Kubasch, Minnesota, and Julie (Mark) Linde, Minnesota; his 6 grandchildren, BreAnne (Jeff) Wais, Kyle (Allison) Flanagan, Lindsey (Robert) Rickard, Daniel (Megan) Kubasch, and Nicole and Alexa Dohmeier: and his 9 great-grandchildren, Micah and Eli Wais, Owen and Ainsley Flanagan, Linnea, Lorraine, and Robert Rickard, and Milo and Arlo Kubasch, his sister-in-law, Lois Hahn, and many nieces and nephews from Wisconsin to Hawaii.

In addition to his wife and parents, Don was preceded in death by his sister Dorothy (Lloyd) Goetz, as well as his brothers Alfred (Elsie) Hahn, Elroy (Marion) Hahn, and Edward (Laraine) Hahn.

Don’s family would like to thank all the diligent staff at Copperleaf Assisted Living in Schofield and at the Aspirus Wausau Hospital Covid Unit for their presence and how well they cared for our dad.
