Obituary for Josef Haselmajer

Sugar Grove, Illinois | Age 87


Josef "Opa" Haselmajer, 87, of Sugar Grove, passed away peacefully Friday, December 15, 2017 at Seasons Hospice in Naperville surrounded by his loving family. Josef was born December 19, 1929 in Tevel, Hungary.
After coming over from Germany with his wife and son with only a suitcase and not knowing the language he fulfilled his dream to come to the U.S. to make a better life for his family. He was employed by All-Steel for 30 years before his retirement. He loved helping others especially family, friends, and neighbors which usually included the use of his many tools. He was always only a phone call away and was willing to offer a helping hand. He enjoyed and took pride being in his garage and loved working in the yard whether he was cutting the grass or shoveling snow. He would enjoy feeding and watching the birds come to his many birdhouses that he made with his most talented working hands. Most importantly he was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather who will be deeply and greatly missed.
Josef is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Katharina (Marter) Haselmajer; his daughter, Kristine Richmond; his son, Helmut (Linda) Haselmajer; his four grandchildren, Brittany (Nicholas) Lopez, Blythe Richmond, Bianca Richmond and Karl Haselmajer; his three great grandchildren, Landon Richmond, Greyson Lopez and Parker Lopez; and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Josef and Katharina (Fetzer) Haselmajer, his brother, Hans Haselmajer and his sister, Katharina Keller.
