Frank J. Haubner

November 13, 1939 ~ March 16, 2014

You Fought Alone

We suffered together

We all have lost

You were so strong

You were so strong and

Unbelievably courageous!”


Frank J. Haubner, 84, a resident of Leavenworth, WA, died Sunday, March 16, 2014, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, WA, after an extended illness. He was born on November 13, 1929, to Frank J. Haubner Sr. and Julia (Jansky) Haubner at Milwaukee, WI, where he was raised and educated. After graduating from Messmer Catholic High School, he joined the U.S. Army. Frank served in Germany, where he met and, on October 18, 1952, married his wife, Marianne. He also served in Korea and two tours in Vietnam. Due to Frank’s language skills, he was selected to teach logistics to the newly created German Army. While serving, Frank was awarded the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star and numerous other achievement awards. After 25 years of honorable service in the Army, he retired and he and Marianne made their home in Spokane, WA. They moved to Leavenworth 21 years later, where they have lived the last 22 years. Frank was an active member of Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus, MOAA, the VFW, the DAV, the American Legion, Paralyzed Veterans, Habitat For Humanity and Trout Unlimited.

He is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Marianne, of the family home; one brother, Jim (Angelita) Haubner of Highland, CA; and 11 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his infant son, Frank Jr.; his parents; brother, Bobby; and sister, Rosemarie.

Recitation of the Holy Rosary will be held on Friday, March 21, 2014, at 6:00 p.m. at Ward’s Funeral Chapel, Leavenworth, with Visitation starting at 2:00 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014, at 10:30 a.m. at Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church in Leavenworth, with Interment at Mt.
