William Donald Hasewinkle

Beloved husband and father, William Donald Hasewinkle, passed away on December 29, 2020 at the age of 89 from complications due to COVID-19. Though his family misses him dearly, they find comfort in knowing he is with Jesus now, where he can join his treasured wife and the family members who have already passed.

Bill (as his family and friends knew him) was born in Indianapolis, Indiana to his now-deceased parents, Roy Hasewinkle and Virginia Stroh Hasewinkle on April 3, 1931. After graduating from Arsenal Technical High School, he joined the Army where he worked as a radiology tech in San Antonio.

His entrepreneurial spirit took him around the world and soon made his residence in Ecuador with his family. Later he moved to the US, where he co-owned a bank equipment and exporting company with his beautiful wife, Otilia. He and Otilia retired and moved to Fairhope, AL near his brother Bob. Bill also spent some happy years in Scottsboro, AL, where he and Otilia made more friends. A few years later, they moved to The Woodlands, TX to be near his two oldest daughters, Virginia and Marina, and then moved to the Austin, TX area to be near his daughter, Susan.

Bill is preceded in death by his wife Otilia Pereira Hasewinkle. He is survived by his children Susan Lee, Virginia Hasewinkle- Niño and husband Rene (deceased), William C. Hasewinkle and wife Laura, Marina Valenzuela and husband Pete. He also leaves behind his grandchildren Rebeca Sodaro and husband Jason (and great grandson Wyatt), Nicolas Valenzuela, Christopher Hasewinkle, James Hasewinkle, Adam Hasewinkle and William Hasewinkle. Along with his nephew Alvaro Pereira, who they raised as his own.

He also leaves behind his beloved brother Bob Hasewinkle and wife Jeanne, and many dear nieces and nephews.

In addition to his family members, his loss will be felt by countless friends & business associates from all over the world, but especially friends in Ecuador, Colombia, Florida, Alabama and Texas.

Because they do not want to put anyone at risk due to the current pandemic, the family will be having an online memorial service for Bill and Otilia, tentatively scheduled for March 6, 2021. Details will soon follow.

Sorry to hear that Bill has passed. He and I spent time at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas in the early 1950’s while we were in the army as instructors at a school for X-ray technicians. I remember that Bill also had a part time job in a San Antonio hospital as a radio graphic technician at the same time.
I remember traveling with Bill many times to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico in Bill’s car.
Bill was quite a guy and will be missed.
