Hans was a self-employed Real Estate Appraiser and MAI (Member of the Appraisal Institute). He often referred to himself as a "humble sole proprietor." Gifted with a unique sense of humor, he founded the "Apostles of the Red Socks Club" for "fun-loving persons who were not afraid to be a little different." Hans, and his mother and father, are all entombed wearing their red socks. Hans was a proud member of the 1952 graduating class of Marquette University High School.
Due to Covid concerns, private services for the family were held. Han's favorite charities included the Knights of Columbus Missions, Pro-Life Across America billboards and EWTN TV. These, or a donation to a charity of your choosing would be greatly appreciated. Ein Prosit, Ein Prosit, Der Gemutlichkeit!
