David Joseph Haas

February 17, 1955 ‒ January 23, 2020

Delaware, Ohio

David Joseph Haas, 64, of Delaware, Ohio passed away at his home on January, 23, 2020.

He was born on February 17, 1955 to Frank Haas and Della Cawley in Delaware, Ohio, whom he joins in heaven. Dave grew up on the east side of Delaware where he later also raised his own children.

Dave is survived by his sisters, Kathy Christian and Becky Stromer. He was a loving son, brother, father, grandpa, great grandpa, nephew and friend to everyone.

Dave was so proud of his family and enjoyed spending time with his children, Matthew Haas, Adam Haas, Scott Lusher, Melissa Haas, and Crystal Shock and kids. Most of all he loved his many grand kids, Hannah, Cory, Wyatt, Adelia, Aubrey, Colton, Jaxton, Spencer, Harli, Brittany, Dylan and Dustin, along with his great grandchildren, Lilly, Aunah, Destiny, and Chase.

Dave was also wonderful uncle to Hailey, Corbin and Tiffany. In addition to being the loving, caring man he was, he shared a deep once in a lifetime love with Debra Landacre. It was a love that included Harley Davidsons and adventures together with their friends and family.

Dave was an employee of Sunray and retired from the City of Delaware. Dave was a lifetime member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles. He served as a trustee at the Eagles #376 for six years. He was loved by his fellow members as he participated in programs that gave back to the community. He continuously thought of ways he could help others. In that process, he touched many people’s lives.

Dave will always be remembered for his giving heart, love for his family, friends and life. Most of all, he will be remembered for his hilarity. There was never a dull moment when Dave was around. He was always making jokes and teasing the people he cared about. Dave had a rare sense of humor that will truly be missed.

Gather with the family on Friday, January 31, 2020 from 3 – 5 pm at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive (formerly 1510 W. William Street), Delaware, where services celebrating Dave’s life will follow at 5:00 pm. Immediately after, there will be a gathering with food at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles.

The Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center of Delaware is honored to serve the Haas family.

  • Dear Kathy and Family,
    I am SO shocked and stunned. I am sorry for your tremendous loss. Your brother will be missed by so many. Hugs and prayers to all who will miss him….

  • Dave was a good guy who left us way to soon. We will always remember him for his great personality and good sport when he was ribbed about something, but he always managed to have a come back.

    His was one of the best trustees that Delaware Eagles ever had, and he will be missed by many.

    Our prayers go out to his family and especially to Debbie. The two of them made a great couple.

    Go rest high on that mountain, son your work on earth is done.

  • This song. Says it all. Go rest.
    Your work is done. You did so much.
    Loved so much. Your children are awesome adults and I witnessed daily your love for them.
    Your love also for grandchildren and your friends. I was truly blessed to share the last part of your life. Our morning chats with coffee will be treasured. Your caring way sometimes met with your ornery soul and wow we all can say you enjoyed messing with us hard. But you showed us you loved us all and your smile warmed our hearts. You tried to be fair , honest and a protective friend to anyone who sat down with a concern or need. You sought out places who we as Eagle members could assist and make a difference. Encouraging young starting our participation with the fair buying champions ,donating to help Stockhands Horses for Healing. Calling members to check on them. Taking the Grandma of our Eagles on a Poker Run. With help saving the Eagles from burning to the ground…I could go on and on.
    I am proud of the heart God gave you. I pray others step up and take over and are guided by your passion to do more.
    I take the love you have shown us all and embrace it. I am blessed you chose me to walk with, ride with and will do my best to make you proud. I will always love you. ❤️ Thank you.
