Edmund George Hausch was born on September 19, 1939 in Rock Island, a son of Ambrose and Helen Irene (Swanson) Hausch. He was among the last graduating class of St. Ambrose Academy and began work at John Deere shortly after. Ed proudly served our country in the Army during the Vietnam War as a Medic. As part of the 48th Medical Battalion, 2nd Armored Division, Ed was the lone survivor of his unit as he was so close to discharge that he stayed stateside as his unit was shipped to Vietnam.
Ed was united in marriage to Nancy A. Staats on September 9, 1961 at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. They have shared over 58 years of marriage and memories.
Following his discharge, Ed went back to work at John Deere until his retirement in 1991 after 41 years of service. Ed's discipline and tremendous work ethic served him well in his career and served as an example to his co-workers and family.
Ed had a passion for the outdoors. He enjoyed riding horses, pheasant and deer hunting, fishing, and meticulously keeping his garden and yard plentiful and perfect. Ed was fiercely loyal to his family; they were the center of his earthly existence and would do anything in his power to aid them in their adventures. He was also deeply devoted to his Catholic faith.
Ed is survived by his wife, Nancy; his daughters, Amy (Doug) Sheeder, all of Blue Grass; and Ann (Chris) Stein, Davenport; his grandchildren: Ethan and Zachary Hausch, Paige, Drew (Alexa) & Morgan Sheeder, Ashley (Caleb Wessel) & Max Stein, a great-granddaughter, Landri; brother, John (Diane) Hausch, Wheatland, Iowa, sister, Mary Ann (Wayne) Arp, Donahue, sister-in-law, Betty McCaw, Aledo, brother-in-law, Jerry Staats, Davenport, and many loving nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his son, Christopher on October 30, 2019, his parents, and a brother-in-law, Larry Staats. May they rest in peace.
