Steven Carl HUSEMANN Obituary

News Death Notice

HUSEMANN, Steven Carl age 63, passed away June 24, 2014, at his home in Mooresville, NC. Steve was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on November 15, 1950, the son of Charles and Ruth Husemann. His parents and one sister, Jean Husemann Scheiderer, preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife, Diana (Ankrim) Husemann. They were married on June 8, 1974. In addition to Diana, he is survived by son Lt Col. Matthew Husemann, USAF, and wife, Sarah of Dover, DE; daughter Emily Husemann Spring and husband, Lloyd of Dublin, OH; brother Dick Husemann and wife, Brenda of Wilmington, NC; sister-in-law Susan (Ankrim) Dockery and husband, Ray of Rock Hill, SC; and brothers-in-law, Edwin Scheiderer of Dublin, OH and Mike Ankrim of Chesapeake, OH. Steve is also survived by his loving nieces and nephews: Charles Husemann, Margaret (Husemann) Traywick, Chris and Andy Ankrim, Kerri (Ankrim) Flanagan, and Michael and Joshua Dockery. Steve, known to them as "Pops", will be particularly missed by his grandchildren Claire and Audrey Husemann, and Ava Beth and Quinten Spring. Steve graduated with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Business Administration from The Ohio State University in 1972. He earned a Master's of Arts in Public Administration and in City and Regional Planning from The Ohio State University in 1974. Upon graduation, Steve started his career in public service as a Transportation Planner for Macon-Bibb County, GA (1974-1975), but returned home to Ohio in 1975 to live and serve in many wonderful communities. He served as the Assistant City Manager of Oxford, OH (1975-1979) and City Manager of Tipp City, OH (1979-1984), Sydney, OH (1984-1990), and Kettering, OH (1990-2006), where he retired in 2006. Following retirement, Steve continued his public service as Executive Director of the Miami Valley Communications Council (2006-2008), Interim City Manager of Middletown, OH (2007), Town Manager of Mooresville, NC (2008-2011), and Interim Manager of Silverton, OH (2011). Steve also served as an Adjunct Professor of Public Budgeting at Wright State University and as an Instructor of General Management Theory and Ethics for the Certified Public Manager Program. He was an active member and former-President of the Ohio City-County Management Association and Dayton Area Manager's Association as well a valued leader of various Rotary Clubs, the Air Force Academy Parent's club, and Boy Scout organizations. All those who knew Steve will remember him for his living faith in God, his unwavering loyalty to his family and friends, his unquenchable passion for public service, and his abiding if fatalistic love for The Ohio State Buckeyes. Steve served as an elder and taught various Bible classes in most of the places he and Diana lived. He cherished spending time with his family and had a true appreciation for the outdoors, claiming accurately that he could identify any tree in southwest Ohio. Steve was a fine athlete (but not nearly as good a basketball player as he thought he was.) "Pops" was always willing to build a sand castle, read a book, or play games with his grandchildren. His kind heart, unfailingly positive attitude, infectious smile, and mischievous sense of humor (with a penchant for terrible puns) left an indelible mark on everyone around him. Steve will be genuinely missed! A memorial service will be held at 2 PM, on Sunday, June 29, at Bethany Church of Christ, 2755 Stroop Rd, Kettering, Ohio. In lieu of flowers, Steve requested that donations be made to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation or the Kettering Foundation. Cavin-Cook Funeral Home, Mooresville, is serving the Husemann family. Condolences may be made to the family at
