Allan Edward Hasenjager, 89, of the Town of Sevastopol, was called Home to be with the Lord, Wednesday morning, May 15, 2019 at Anna’s Healthcare CBRF in Sturgeon Bay with family at his side.
He was born June 4, 1929 in the Town of Jacksonport, the son of Orville Carl Hasenjager and Amanda Florence (Bley) Hasenjager. Allan attended Sunny Point School in the Town of Egg Harbor for eight years. He then began a period in his life that had a large influence as he worked for Bertschinger Lumber and Feed Mill in Egg Harbor for several years. On February 26, 1949, Allan married Audrey Ann Peterson at St. John Ev. Lutheran Church in Valmy where he remained a lifelong member. They recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. Together, Allan and Audrey owned dairy farms in Egg Harbor and in the Town of Sevastopol. In the mid-1960s, he became a sales representative for the Clay Equipment Corporation and later adding MFS Grain Systems, Jamesway Barn Equipment, and Rochester Silos.
“He had very few interests other than work, making money, being productive. He viewed any other activities as waste. There was no one who had a stronger work ethic than him. He could motivate those of us around him to accomplish things we did not think were possible.”
