Daniel "Dan" Hass,

By Schinderle Funeral Home

Daniel "Dan" Hass, 68, a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel, of Algoma, Wisconsin, died on August 27, 2018, following a boating accident in Alaska.

Dan was born on February 2, 1950, and grew up in Ellison Bay, Wisconsin. He later moved with his family to Neenah where he graduated from high school in 1968. Dan graduated from Michigan State University in 1972 and was then commissioned into the U.S. Air Force as an Accounting and Finance Officer. He obtained a law degree from Drake University in 1980 and became a Staff Judge Advocate for the Air Force. Dan led a distinguished 26-year career as an Air Force officer, serving tours throughout the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East. He was awarded the Legion of Merit, Meritorious Service Medal with 4 oak leaf clusters, Air Force Commendation Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal. Upon retirement from active duty in 1998, Dan continued his career as a civilian attorney with the Air Force for 12 years and NATO in Luxembourg for 2 years. Dan had numerous accomplishments which included opening the Air Force legal office at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, and securing the multibillion-dollar C-17 NATO contract for the Air Base near Budapest, Hungary.

Dan was a down-to-earth guy with a great sense of humor. He loved bird hunting with Gus, fishing anytime anywhere, deer hunting, Chuck's smoked fish, Jim Beam, freshly baked cookies with a glass of milk, and hanging out Sunday mornings at the gun club... not necessarily in that order. Most of all, he loved his wife and two daughters.

Dan is greatly missed by his wife of 46 years, Sue (Hathaway) Hass, their two daughters, Gretchen and Katie Hass, and his four-legged son, Gus, who is waiting patiently for Dan to come home and take him bird hunting. Dan is also survived by his sister Nancy (Denny) Hendrickson, brother Bob (Ginny) Hass, sister Jane (Bill) Wagner, sister-in-law Suzi Hass, five cousins, and several nieces and nephews. Dan was predeceased by his parents, Herman and Irene (Frea) Hass and brother Greg Hass.

A memorial service with military honors will be held on November 10th at 1:00 pm at SCHINDERLE FUNERAL HOME, 1600 Schinderle Lane, Algoma. Immediately following, all are invited to a celebration of Dan's life at the Black Ash Gun Club, E5108 W Wilson Rd, Algoma. Some of Dan's family members and friends have died of cancer and it would be Dan's wish that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Cancer Research Institute, 29 Broadway, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10006-3111 or www.cancerresearch.org.

George G. Pinney

By Terry Kovarik              

George G. Pinney, 94, of Urbana, IL, passed away in his sleep at home on Sunday, September 2, 2018.

George was born September 9, 1923 in Hiawatha, KS, the son of George and Janet (Daniels) Pinney. During his teen years, his family moved to Sturgeon Bay, WI, where he graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School. It was also there that George met his future wife, Helen Charney, at Leathem Smith Shipbuilding where they were both employed during World War II. They were married on June 30, 1944 at the Sister Bay Moravian Church and lived in Madison WI, Marinette WI, and Chicago, IL before establishing their home in Park Ridge, IL where they raised their children. George earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and spent the majority of his professional life as a chemical engineer for National Cylinder Gas, Chemetron, and Liquid Air, retiring in 1994. He was a faithful member of First United Methodist Church of Park Ridge for many years and enjoyed volunteering with the Boy Scouts. After Helen's death in 2011, George decided to move to Clark Lindsey Village in Urbana in 2013. He relished the many new friendships which he found both there and at First United Methodist Church of Champaign.

George was known for his friendliness, his sense of humor, and his pragmatic can-do attitude. A lifelong voracious reader, he was a storehouse of information on a wide range of subjects and would often recite a verse, both serious and silly, from memory.

George is survived by his son and daughter, Kevin G. (Tracy) Pinney of Woodway, TX and Karen (Peter) Mortensen of Urbana, IL; four grandchildren, Abigail Mary-Helen Pinney and Sarah, Ellen, and Andrew Mortensen.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife; and four siblings, Mary, James, Janet and Ruth.

A memorial service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 8, 2018, at First United Methodist Church in Champaign, IL. Visitation was held at the church from 1:00 p.m. until the time of service. Renner-Wikoff Chapel & Crematory in Urbana, IL assisted with Illinois service arrangements. Condolences may be offered at www.renner-wikoffchapel.com.

Visitation for family and friends will be held at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay on Saturday, November 3, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the procession to Bayside Cemetery at 11:30 a.m. Pastor Tim Malek will officiate the graveside committal service.

Memorial donations in honor of George may be made to any public library.
