Obituary of Roger Frank Hauser

June 3, 1955 – August 29, 2021

With sadness the family of Roger Hauser announces his passing on August 29, 2021, at the age of 66.

Growing up Roger had fond memories of riding their Shetland pony with his sister Bev.  He & his cousin Jack would swim in Grandma Punk’s dug out.  He would say, “the doggie paddle saved me there, as I almost drowned!” he loved sharing these memories with us all. We loved hearing them told.

Dad loved sports, and as a kid he played baseball. His teams were Calgary Flames & Saskatchewan Rough Riders. Roger enjoyed fishing near Middle Lake and took my brother Keith to a few other favorite spots around Humboldt. He was quite a gypsy as he grew up, as he loved to travel around to different places.  From cross the border to the States hitch hiking, and all the way over to Labrador the “East Coast of Canada”.  He would be heard saying, “Great Country up there and great people.”

Roger enjoyed running his own businesses from DJ, Carpet Cleaning, selling water filtration systems, Ice cream kiosk at a Farmer’s Market, buying and selling vehicles, carpentry jobs, owning the Burr Bar with his best friend Dave (A Bucket list item).  Dad always said, “I don’t like working for the man.”

He played slo-mo hockey with his buddies in Humboldt and would love to make his own skating rink for my brother Keith and his friends or who ever wanted to join, including himself. Dad was a big kid himself.

When Roger was in Calgary, one of his other bucket list items was to be an extra in a movie. He ended up getting picked because he was smoking a cigarette without the filter. He loved that he had the chance to chat with Anne Hatheway on their breaks shooting rodeo scenes for Broke Back Mountain.

Dad loved telling jokes & watching funny shows. One of his favorites was Corner Gas & got to see where it was filmed in Saskatchewan!

Dad…Your jokes, your stories, your love for art & music will live on in all of us…..you will be here in spirit always…we love you!
