On December 18th, 2022, at the age of 76, Paul Robert Haase passed away surrounded by family in Tucson, AZ. The son of John and Helen (Butler) Haase, he was born November 26th, 1946, in Rochelle, IL. He is preceded in death by his parents John and Helen. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Betty Haase (Sickinger), two children Jill Clark (Ryan), John Haase (Jennifer), and his four grandchildren Brandon, Erin, Mason, and Connor. He is also survived by his brother Neil.\n\n\n\nWhile attending Oregon High School he fell in love with Betty and they married a couple of years after graduating, on June 21st, 1969. Paul proudly served his country in the United States Army and after his service he began his career in the printing industry in Illinois. After the birth of their first child, Jill, Paul and Betty moved to Tempe, AZ for Paul to pursue what ended up being a lifetime career with American Color. He and his family moved from Tempe to San Diego, CA, where their son John was born, then to Tucson, AZ. He had many accomplishments and held various leadership positions during his career with American Color, traveling the country to client sites as needed. He then started his second, and arguably favorite, career as a computer tech at Catalina Foothills High School in Tucson where going to work put a smile on his face every day.\n\n\n\nThroughout his life he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, fixing and restoring cars, attending drag races and car shows, and refurbishing laptops. He also enjoyed the camaraderie of a group of like-minded fans of beef, The Burger Boys, and celebrated their 10-year anniversary with them the day before his passing. He was most proud of the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren and cherished the time he was able to spend with them. Paul was a friend to all. He was hard-working, honest, and willing to help anyone who needed a hand at any time. He made those around him feel special with his inside jokes or by showing his appreciation for something that made them unique. He will be missed dearly, and his memories will live on in the minds, hearts, and conversations of all who knew him.\n\n\n\nIn lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Autism Society of Southern Arizona.
