So sorry to read of Hap's passing. I actually tonight thought I would see if he may still live on Cape and unfortunately found his obituary. He had a full life. My dad "Doc " Vincent Malewicz passed away June 11,2015. Enjoyed the pics shared and noted the old Cottage St. homestead and Hap and dad in graduation robes. May he RIP and let the years of memories fill your hearts with comfort. God Bless Jan Malewicz Cook East Wareham MA

My sincere sympathies to the entire family. Hap was great counselor and a genuine human being.
It was an honor to have known him as a colleague and to have known all of you.

My sympathy to the Mazukina Family. I first met Hap over 30 years ago, when I became a track & field official. I quickly found him to be a true gentleman. I will always have fond memories of my conversations with him. Dealing with him was a true pleasure. He will be greatly missed.

My sympathies to the family on your loss. Hap was instrumental in giving me my start in high school football officiating . As I continued in the avocation, he was always one to offer sound advice to me as a college official. Hap was a gentleman and a gentle man. He leaves the art of football officiating and the game better because of his involvement.

I was very sad to read the passing of Hap! I have enjoyed so many conversations with him every spring and fall to take care of his irrigation. While I have never personally met him I feel like I've known him for many moons! We here at Mid-Cape Irrigation are sending all our love & prayers to his family! You will be greatly missed Hap! Love, Carolyn, Jimmie & Herbie

Sending you all love. I have such a vivid memory of "Hap", goes back to 7th-8th grade at Central School in Mansfield. He was so young and handsome - I even wanted to fix him up with my sister! Alas, she instead, married Bob Tighe - another one of my teachers. It was with such great pleasure that a few years ago, 9 of us "girls" from that time, met up with him on the Cape - still looking handsome - and he remembered so many of us. A wonderful man.
