Kamilius Hausser "Kamil"

1914-2012 Kamilius "Kamil" Hausser passed away on August 21, 2012 at the age of 98.

Since February, 2010 he resided near his son (Alex) at the Spring Hills assisted living facility in Somerset, N.J. There he enjoyed the various activities and the excellent menu in the restaurant. "If there was something going on, he was there", was a frequent comment made by many Spring Hills residents.

Kamilius is survived by his two daughters Ludmilla Fox and Mary-Ann Emery, his son Alex, nine grand children and nine great-grandchildren.

On January 25, 1914, Kamilius was born to Marianna and Ludwig Hausser in Odessa, Ukraine, as the youngest of 11 children. Because of their wealth, before the Russian revolution, his family was in a Russian Gulag from where he escaped, was recaptured, and sent to Siberia for three years. In 1944 he again escaped the Gulag with his family, landing in East Germany after a long trek through Hungary and Poland. His ultimate dream was to immigrate to the United States. This dream came true in June of 1951 when he and his family arrived in the US, to the sight of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. For 16 years he worked on the Hibbard farm in Hadley, Mass., until he went to work at the Northampton VA Hospital. He retired in 1982, spending his time at the homes of his children and numerous hobbies and other pursuits.

He was a man of great inner strength, a warm heart and the best Father we (his children) could have had.

FUNERAL NOTICE: The funeral will be from Pease and Gay Funeral Home, Tuesday at 9 a.m. with a liturgy of Christian burial at Blessed Sacrament Church, Elm Street, Northampton. Kamilius will be laid to rest beside his loving wife, Katarina Hausser at St Mary's Cemetery in Northampton, MA. Calling hours will be at the Pease & Gay Funeral Home on Monday, August 27, 2012 from 6 to 8 p.m.
