In Loving Memory
To send flowers in memory of Carl Richard Hahn, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Carl Richard Hahn was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on October 12, 1926 to Charles and Grace Hahn. In 1944, Carl enlisted in the United States Army and was deployed to the Philippines where he met and fell in love with Josefa Del Rosario. Carl and Josefa were married on June 22, 1946 and settled in Manila.
In 1950, Carl and his family moved to Milwaukee Wisconsin for better job opportunities. Carl worked multiple jobs, including for the Coca Cola Company, for AC Spark Plug, and also operated his own television-repair business. In 1962, Carl moved the family to Phoenix and was employed at Goodyear Aerospace (Loral) for almost 30 years.
After retiring at age 62 in 1989, Carl and Josefa moved to El Cajon, CA in 1990. They loved traveling the world, golfing, attending the theater, and taking trips to Las Vegas. But, most of all they loved spending time with their family and close friends.
Carl loved God, his family and friends. He loved telling jokes to make people laugh to lighten up their daily lives. During his life, he made many life-long friends because of his belief in fairness, discipline and willingness to share his knowledge. Carl found strength and purpose in his devotion to his wife of 72 years and the loving support of their 5 children, 8 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. On May 9, 2019, Carl Richard Hahn passed away suddenly of natural causes at the age of 92. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.
Surviving family include his wife, Josefa Hahn, brother Erwin Hahn of Sun City, AZ, daughters Francine Hahn Haight of Laguna Niguel, CA and Jennifer Hahn (James) of Sunnyvale, CA, sons Richard Hahn of Phoenix, AZ, Edward Hahn (Linda) of Orange, CA and Robert Hahn (Penny) of Phoenix, AZ. Preceding Carl in death were his parents and his grandson Ryan Haight.
The family wishes to thank you most sincerely for your expressions of kindness and sympathy. God Bless You!
