Obituary for George Edward Hauss

It is with deep sadness we share word of the passing of George Edward Hauss on December 19, 2020 after a full and productive life.
Upon graduation from Ahrens Trade School, George joined the U.S. Army. After leaving the Army he began his engineering career with Logan Company in Louisville, KY in the drafting department. George spent 25 years with Logan Company. In 1972 he took a leadership role with United Handling Systems, (a Litton Industries company) in Hebron, KY, moving the family to Florence. He retired in 1992 as President of the Material Handling Division of Litton Industrial Automation.
George filled his retirement years with travel, family, and continuous and multiple household projects. He was known for his problem-solving skills, his ability to fix just about anything, and his enjoyment of life, particularly his Manhattan at the end of the day. He never met a stranger, remaining curious about new people, their life, and how their businesses operated all through his life. With his sharp mind and keen intellect, George was interested in the latest technologies. His family is forever grateful that his prolific use of his iPad allowed them to stay in touch during his extended hospital stay as he daily FaceTimed family members.
George is preceded in death by his beloved Marcella, his wife of 64 plus years and his younger sister, Sandy Griffin. He is survived by his 2 bothers Don (Joy) and Alan (Bev), his four children, Ronn (Deborah), Sharon Binford (T.J.), Mark (Terry) and Lorie Williams (Randy). He will be fondly remembered and much missed by his 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
In keeping with current health directives, Funeral Services will be private for family members only, with a Celebration of Life planned for July 2021. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be sent to Kosair Charities, 929 Eastern Parkway, Louisville, KY 40217. Stith Funeral Home, Florence, is assisting the family. Online condolences may be left for the family at
