Carl Haab Jr., 95, Nashville

Carl A. Haab Jr., 95, Nashville, passed away at 5:43 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013, at Our Hospice Inpatient Facility.

Carl was born June 3, 1918, in Bremen to Carl A. and Blanch Snobarger Haab.

He graduated from Bremen High School and worked in the family grain elevator business until his enlistment in the Army Air Corps during World War II. Carl served as a technical sergeant with the 1596th AAF Base Unit and he was honorably discharged Dec. 17, 1945. He married Joan Terwilliger Aug. 19, 1951, in Goshen.

His family was the most important thing in his life and provided a large family farm where all the children resided. He loved living in Brown County among the trees and hills he enjoyed so much, and raised horses for many years. He took pride in maintaining his property and was mowing his own lawn up to shortly before his passing.

He was an avid Colts and IU fan. He will be sadly missed by his family who will always be reminded of his character, strong work ethic and positive outlook on life.

A gathering of family and friends will be conducted from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26 at Barkes, Weaver & Glick Funeral Home on Jonathan Moore Pike in Columbus. In keeping with Carl's wishes cremation is planned. A private family memorial service will be conducted at a later date.

Memorial contributions can be made to Our Hospice of South Central Indiana.

Online condolences can be made to the Haab family at www.barkesweaverglick.com.

Carl is survived by his wife, Joan Haab; children, Kathleen McGow, Carol (Kent) Johnson and Kristina (Don) Taylor, all of Nashville; sister, Mary Belle Henry; grandchildren, Jeremy Black, Corey (Kerri) Sullivan, Molly McGow, Jeffrey (Melissa) Johnson, Matthew (Aimee) Johnson and Melissa Scott; and great-grandchildren, Madelyn and Ethan Johnson, Grayson and Clara Sullivan and Katelyn Johnson.

Carl was preceded in death by his parents.
