Thomas D. Haase, 66, of Hicksville, Ohio passed away unexpectedly Saturday, June 12, 2021 while doing what he loved, working outside manicuring his lawn. Tom was born January 27, 1955, in Hicksville, Ohio, the son of the late Ted L. and Lorene E. (Rosebrock) Haase. He was a 1973 graduate of Hicksville High School. He went to work for the Parker Hannifin Company, retiring in 2015 after 42 years of service. Tom married Brenda S. Strock on August 23, 1975, in Hicksville, Ohio. After the marriage ended, he then married Donna L. Newman on September 12, 1998 in Hicksville, Ohio, and she preceded him in death on March 4, 2021. Tom proudly served the Village of Hicksville as a village councilman from 1981 to 2001. For a period of time, he served as Mayor. He was a member of St. John Lutheran Church, Hicksville; Hicksville Rotary Club; Hicksville Eagles Aerie 2556; Hicksville Jaycees; Hicksville Beautification Committee; and the National Mustang Club of America. In his free time, Tom enjoyed working outside in his lawn (and often his neighbors’ lawns), golfing, boating, going to car shows and visiting the beach. Of many things, Tom will be remembered for his orneriness, fantastic sense of humor, and his heart for others.
Surviving are his two children, Christopher (Allison) Haase of Garner, North Carolina, and Tiffany (Richard) Simpson of Waynesville, North Carolina; Donna’s daughter and son, Angie Mojica of Ney, Ohio and Matthew Chaffins of Toledo, Ohio; four grandchildren, Lauren, Madison, Tyler and Logan Haase; three step-grandchildren, Pyper, Oliver and Sawyer; two sisters, Linda (Ed) Foster and Shirley (Larry) Schooley, both of Hicksville, Ohio. He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Donna; grandson, Phenix Mojica; one sister, Janice Haase; and one niece, Tammy Foster.
