William F. Hausman of Hampstead passed away peacefully Thursday, October 13, 2016 at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice in Wilmington. Bill was born on January 4, 1926 in Allentown PA, son of the late William and Ruth Hausman. He graduated from Muhlenberg College in Allentown in 1950 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Science. Bill is a veteran of World War II, having served in the US Navy from 1943 to 1947, his tours having included duty aboard the USS William P Biddle and USS Macon, along with time spent in the South Pacific.
After serving in the Navy, Bill worked for Reynolds Aluminum, taught science at Edgar Fahs Smith High School in York PA, and then finally retired after working 20 years as the Head of Quality Control for the El-Ge Potato Chip Company of York PA. He retired in 1993 to Hampstead to do what he loved the most, play lots of golf, go fishing and eat plenty of crabs.
Bill is survived by his two sons, Philip Hausman of York PA and Eric Hausman of Cape Canaveral FL and grandson Brett Hausman of Cape Canaveral FL, and his longtime companion Betty Driscoll of Hampstead.
Bill has requested that his ashes be sprinkled over Lake Teedyuskung, located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylavania. This lake was a special place for him growing up, where he spent his summers with best friends. Truly a place of peace and beauty.
