Heuer, Jans Joachim  
Hans Heuer, 90, died on April 2, 2015, following a short severe illness. He was born in Magdeburg, Germany, on June 17, 1924. His parents moved to Chicago when Hans was 2 years old. Hans joined the Army and served two years in Italy during World War II. However, he was never allowed on the front lines because of his German birth. Following World War II, Hans attended the University of Wyoming on the GI Bill, where he received a degree in mechanical engineering. He and his wife, Bernice Krahenbuhl, met at a climbing club in Chicago. The club made a lot of trips west to the Rocky Mountains to climb, and they both fell in love with Colorado. They were married March 20, 1954, and moved to Colorado in the early 1960s. Over the years, he designed and built their two homes in Hidden Valley. Hans worked for Martin Marietta and made several trips to Cape Canaveral in his blue MG roadster. He got caught in one of the reductions-in-force at Martin Marietta, when the space program had a down time. Hans then worked for Crystal Sugar Co., where he designed plants to process beet sugar. In retirement, he managed finances and upgrades for the Hidden Valley Mutual Water Co. Hans was very active at Evergreen Lutheran Church, where he and Bernie were members for more than 55 years. He organized the men's breakfast group after the retirement of Pastor Schutt. He was a member of a Christian outreach program sponsored by the church that provided building repairs to widows and widowers in the community who needed help. He also worked with the group in providing designs and assisting in minor remodeling of the old church building and church house. Hans was an avid baseball fan and for a long time had season tickets to the Colorado Rockies games. After his health began to fail, he followed them religiously on TV. In addition, he was a train buff and took the opportunity to ride every steam train he could find. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Bernice, and his sister, Lillian. Hans and Bernie were loving and caring parents to their two children and grandchildren, daughter Lisa Parker and grandchildren Katie and Keith, and son Kurt Heuer, wife Jean and grandchildren Leah, Karl and Ian. A memorial service to commemorate his life was held at Evergreen Lutheran Church on April 26, 2015. His ashes were inurned with those of Bernie in the Memorial Garden of Hope behind the church.
