Norman H. Hausch, age 84 of Franklin Township, passed away Monday, January 28, 2013, at Robinson Memorial Hospital.
He was born December 4, 1928, in Ravenna, Ohio, a son of the late William and Edna (Hill) Hausch. Norm was a proud veteran of the US Army serving in the Korean War. He retired from the Kent State University Printing Department and later worked at ACME. Norm was a member of the Tallmadge United Methodist Church.
Norm was devoted to his family. He loved to dance with his wife, Margie. They were members of the Cuyahoga Valley Cloggers and 37 year members of the Western Whirlers Square Dance Club in Tallmadge. He also enjoyed camping, photography, and woodworking, pretty much anything that allowed him to work with his hands.

Norm was preceded in death by his beloved wife Margie Hausch on August 15, 2011. He was also preceded by his father William Hausch, mother Edna Ridenour, step-father Robert Ridenour, and brother-in-law Richard McMann.
