At the young age of 17 he was accepted to the University of Notre Dame but chose to serve his country and enlisted in the United States Navy, where he soon met the one and only love of his life, Maria Sanchez Perez. They were married December 8, 1960. Gene proudly served his country for 20 years in the U.S. Navy; first stationed at the U.S. Naval Station, Rota, Spain, serving on the Aircraft Carrier USS America as a Flight Engineer. He was later stationed at Patuxent River, MD, then Norfolk, VA and lastly retired as Chief Petty Officer in Lakehurst, NJ in 1976. Dad always said it was his dream job.

Gene loved his life, he loved the Navy, and he loved his country. But mostly, Dad loved our mom and all his family both here in the U. S. and over in Spain. So, to Dad, from his six children; Eugene R. Hauber, Maria Maschefzky, Frances Barton, Irene Maag, Jimmy Hauber and Andrew Hauber and to grandpa, from all his grandchildren; Stephen Maschefzky, and Molly Maschefzky, Christopher Hauber, Ryan Keyes, Gary Barton, and Andrew Barton, Matthew Hauber, and Jonathan Hauber and to Great P’Pa from Kirra and Alina Maschefzky, we will always love you, miss you and we thank you for being in our lives.
Gene will always be remembered for his loving heart, kind soul, generosity to others, his honest opinions, passion for politics, sound advice and his bigger than life personality. He was an intellectual thinker and an eloquent writer, and a big teddy bear with a gruff side. All in all, he was a true good guy. Gene will truly be missed and always loved. He is now at peace.... But still At Delta.
