The sudden and unexpected, but peaceful death of Douglas David Haussecker 70 years, of Watson occurred at his residence on Saturday, December 1, 2018. Doug was born in Quill Lake, Saskatchewan on September 26, 1948 to Wilhelm and Lina (nee Wiess) Haussecker. He obtained his education in Watson. At a very young age Doug would spend time with his father at the meat shop and learned the skill of meat cutting and how to run a business. On October 11, 1969 Doug married Carole Franko in Watson. They began their life together in Watson and were blessed with two children Jim and Lana. Doug continued to own and operate the Watson Meat Processors shop along with family members until August 2016 when they closed. Doug was a very successful business man and spent many hours at his shop, and after 50 years decided to retire. He also made time for golfing, a sport he thoroughly enjoyed and did regularly with his family and friends. Many family fishing and camping trips were held annually around the province. As a family they drove to California to experience Disney Land, where many laughs and memories were made. Later Doug and Carole travelled to many destinations through work and pleasure. For many years they did an annual run to Deadwood, SD with friends. Doug was very active in his children’s activities and nothing made him happier then when the grandchildren started to arrive. He loved spending time with them and teaching them card games. In the past couple years after retiring Doug was a regular on coffee row and playing a good competitive game of cards with his friends. He did have one more love and that was the Saskatchewan Roughriders, a true fan, they rarely missed a game. Summer was his favourite season because he could be golfing and spending time at the lake. Doug will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 49 years Carole Haussecker of Watson and two children and five grandchildren: Jim (Jodi) Haussecker and family Dylan and Connor of Watson and Lana (Derek) Woulfe and family Hunter, Jaden and Trey of Marean Lake; sisters and brothers: Betty Moskaluke of Watson, Roy Haussecker of Calgary, Ed Haussecker of Saskatoon, Kurt (Ken) Haussecker of Bridgetown N.S. and Deb (Paul) Stanton of Pakenham, ON; brothers and sisters-in-law: Chris Haussecker, Iris (Gordon) Dempster , Dan Franko and Howard (Jan) Franko . Doug was predeceased by his parents Wilhelm and Lina Haussecker; two brothers: Bill Haussecker and Eric (Lee) Haussecker; brothers and sisters-in-law: Bill Moskaluke, Karen Haussecker, Linda Haussecker and Wendy Haussecker. A Funeral Service was held on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. from Watson Civic Center officiated by Rev. Brenda Curtis. Interment will follow at a later date.
