Vernon Hauck was born on Wednesday, October 18, 1939 to Emanuel and Esther (Michaelssohn) Hauck on the family farm northwest of Tyndall, South Dakota in Bon Homme County.  He was baptized in the Emanuel Reformed Church in rural Tripp and confirmed in the Friedens Reformed Church in Tripp.  He attended Hoff School in rural Tyndall through the 8th grade. On November 6, 1960, Vernon was united in marriage to Pauline M. Winckler at the First Congregational Church in Scotland and to this union 4 children were born.  Together they resided on a farm northwest of Tyndall where they farmed and raised their family. Vernon was a member of the Tyndall Presbyterian Church.
Throughout his life, Vernon enjoyed farming, tending his garden, and simply just being outdoors. Though Vernon was a dedicated farmer, he wasn’t all work and no play. He enjoyed frequenting local auctions, collecting toy tractors especially Farmalls, and was known to appreciate his fair share of ice cream.
Vernon died on Friday, December 5, 2014 at the Doherty Hospice House in Sioux Falls having attained the age of 75 years, 1 month, and 17 days.
Vernon's memory will be cherished by his wife of 54 years, Pauline Hauck of Tyndall; daughter Sandra (Kevin) Vanden Berge of Mitchell; sons Allen Hauck of Scotland,  Michael Hauck and special friend Kristi Burgi of Tyndall, and Darrin (Lisa) Hauck of Tyndall; grandchildren: Laura (Rick) Estrada of Mitchell, Tyler Vanden Berge of Mitchell, Amanda Hauck of Tyndall, and Bryce Hauck of Tyndall; great-grandchildren: Myles, Megyn, and Mykayla Estrada of Mitchell; and sister Ramona (Robert) Chambers of Tyndall.
Vernon was preceded in death by his parents.

My condolences to Pauline and her extended family. I have known Vernon since 1948 when I started first grade at Hoff School District. Our family farms were only 21/2 miles apart and we attended the same rural church. I will always remember Vernon as being a quiet, caring,and honest individual. God Bless.
