He was born February 5, 1942 in Gillett, WI to Arthur and Elsa (Eggebrecht) Krause. He was a graduate of Gillett High School, Class of 1960. Following graduation he honorably served his nation in the US Navy.

For the majority of his career Hans was employed at Eck Industries in Manitowoc as a tool and die maker.
Hans was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, and gardening. He also was a great supporter of the NRA and .50 Caliber Association and enjoyed gun-smithing. He especially enjoyed spending time with his family.
