Kenneth J. Haase

09/03/1950 - 03/19/2020

Kenneth J. Haase, age 69, of Larsen, passed away Thursday, March 19, 2020, at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton. He was born September 3, 1950, in Neenah to the late Roy Sr. and Mary (Vosburg) Haase. Ken was a 1968 graduate of Winneconne High School. After graduation Ken served in the U.S. Army, and while in the service he began dating Debby Hansen, and on July 17, 1976, they were married at Grace Lutheran Church in Winchester. For many years he was employed by Winnebago County until his retirement in 2017. In retirement, Ken enjoyed spending time with family whether on the water fishing or in the woods hunting and his greatest joy was spending time with his grandsons.

Ken is survived by his wife of 43 years, Debby Haase; two sons, Russ (Sarah) Haase; Ryan (Letty) Haase, two grandsons, Easton and Maddux Haase (Ryan and Letty); two brothers and a sister, Roy Haase Jr., Carol Mantuefel, Cal (Julie) Haase; as well as many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

Along with his parents, Ken was also preceded in death by his father-in-law and mother-in-law, George and Lillian Hansen.

A private family service will be held, and a Celebration of Life will be held at a date to be announced later.

The family wishes to thank the staff of the Ascension Clinic-Neenah, especially Kari Bouras, and the doctors, nurses, and staff of St. Elizabeth Hospital for all of the care and compassion shown to Ken and them.

Debby, so sorry for your loss! Judy loved you both so much and enjoyed all the time we had together. I had been a volunteer at St. E's for 15 months until they suspended our services last week. I was there every Wed on the 2nd floor. I go and see Judy a couple times a week, she will be devestated. I will let her know today. Loved to make Ken laugh. Loved your dogs too. Tom

So sorry to hear of Kens passing. We graduated with him in 1968. We didn’t get to see him often but Ken and Debbie made most of the class reunions. Ken had such a nice smile and he was so soft spoken. That’s how we will remember him

My most heartfelt condolences to your family. As a classmate and growing up in Winchester I was with Ken for all of my elementary through high school years. What a great guy and I have so meany memories I shared with Ken. we played football and baseball at Winneconne together. Never forget Ken's mammoth home run in the last inning in our victory over Menasha when we were seniors. I hope you guys still have that ball because we recovered it and gave it to Ken. He lives still in my heart and I am sure in the hearts of all who knew him. God bless you in this time of sorrow. LTC (R) Tom Christianson
