My dad’s life can be recounted in his many achievements…his years as head counselor at Father Flanagan's Boys’ Home, the company he entrepreneured, the ministries for which he volunteered at our church, the family he raised. However, he was so much more than the summation of his achievements. He walked this earth, and he touched the souls of others. This is the measure of a life. I remember going to daily mass early in the mornings during the summer with my dad. I would go because it usually meant he would take me out to breakfast somewhere. Sitting there drinking coffee he would strike up a conversation with the waiter or waitress and it would become clear he had been here before, that he already knew them. It also became clear, that these were people who were hurting. My dad sought them out, talked with them, gave them money if needed. But it was much more than that...what he gave them was far more valuable - he gave them hope. This he did without thought of recognition or reward...seeking only to touch their broken souls. A lifetime of kindness, of charity, of humility that takes flight in the hearts of others, this is the measure of a man… this is the measure of Charles Joseph Hauber, born August 8, 1934, traveled Home February 15, 2014.

He was greeted in Heaven by his mother Angela Hauber, his father Carl Hauber, and his son Gregory Hauber. He will be missed by his wife of almost 52 years Saren Hauber of Denison, Texas, his sons Michael Hauber and his wife Lucinda of Sherman, Texas, and Daniel Hauber of Southmayd, Texas, his daughter Renee Burroughs and her husband Micky of Denison, Texas, his grandchildren Tiana Hauber, Ciara Hauber, Daria Hauber, Saxon Richardson, Aubrey Hauber, Kenzie Williams, Gregory Hauber, Cody Burroughs, Kyrsten Burroughs, and Quentin Burroughs, his great grandchildren Zachary Richardson and Ethan Richardson, his brothers Harry Hauber and his wife Dee of Spirit Lake, Iowa and Richard Hauber and his wife Barbara of Cleves, Ohio, his sisters Carol Ann Hauber of Niles, Illinois, Shirley Scholl and her husband Lou of Lockhart, Texas, and Donna Neudeck and her husband Denny of Omaha, Nebraska.
