Hass, Frank Peter, 44 went to be with the lord on Friday, May 4th, 2012 at Dr. P. Phillips Hospital in Orlando, Florida, after a valiant battle with cancer. Frank proudly served in the United States Marine Corps after graduating from Dixie Hollins High School.  After his service in the military, Frank went on to receive his Electrical Engineering B.S. degree from Milwaukee School of Engineering and later his Masters from University of South Florida.  While his career took him many places, his final employment was with Oceaneering Entertainment Systems in Orlando, Florida.  It was there that Frank obtained his “dream job”, being afforded the opportunity to design and work on theme park attractions all across the world.  Frank is survived by his wife of 16 years, Tamara; his children, Olivia, Sophia, and Frank II. He was a loving son to Francis Hass of St. Petersburg, Florida and Geraldine Wimmers of Orlando, Florida, as well as proud brother to Janet and Laura both of Clearwater, Florida.  Frank also leaves behind six nieces and nephews that he cherished, and an enormous amount of friends and family that loved and respected him.  This world certainly lost a remarkable man and many will mourn his loss. A memorial service will be held for Frank on Saturday, May 19th, 2012 at Holy Family Catholic Church in Orlando, Florida.  In lieu of flowers, a fund has been established for the Hass Family children.   In lieu of flowers, a fund has been established for the Hass Family children A memorial service will be held for Frank at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 19th, 2012 at Holy Family Catholic Church in Orlando, Florida.

    Hi Frank,
    I just wanted to say I hope you are truly happy looking down on all of us and what a wonderful friend, brother & father you are. I also wanted to let you know what a great job your wife is doing in continuing to raise your wonderful family. Tammy has faced many new challenges and barriers and each time has come through in flying colors (God bless her). Even with all the new obstacles and life tests, she continues to make loving her family and making them feel special number one. She could use a little encouragement every now and then so feel free to give her a sign and let her know you are still watching over her and the family. Each one of your children is so very special in their own right and would make you proud with their hard work and accomplishments, they all remind me of you. Your sister has had to face new challenges as a single mom and has done well but also could use a little brotherly sign to let her know you are watching over her and her family too! I miss you my friend and wait for that day in the future when we get to catch up again.
    Take care,

    I would like to give my sincere condolence s to the family and friends of Mr. Hass. Although I did not know him personally, I am sure that he was loved and will be missed dearly. Please know that God has promised that soon, no one will have to go through the emotional turmoil of losing a loved one in death. No one will ever again be sick, be in pain, or die (Revelation 21:4). We will also be able to see our loved ones who have died again (Acts 24:15). I hope that this provides something comforting to reflect on in this very difficult time.

    Frank, you will be and already are... greatly missed. I am proud to have had the privilege of knowing and working with you. I am not sure I have ever met someone who had as much passion for both work and family and knew how to balance between the two. I learned a lot from you in the time we knew each other. I know you wanted to see this project to the end…. and you will. We had fun at the charity classics and in Hollywood. It was funny to learn that you were such a star gazer.

    To Tamara, Olivia, Sophia, Frankie and Frank's family my sincerest condolences for your loss. Although this was a very long journey for Frank, it still felt like it came on suddenly. This is attributed to the way Frank chose to manage the situation. I do not believe I ever heard him complain once.

    This should be an inspiration to us all.

    Frank was a true friend for our family. I have the best memories and experiences with him, Tamara and the kids. When Frank and John got together was always trouble from burning entertaiment center in a bonfire to just have a great time together. My first camping trip was with the Hass Family and because they went i got motivated of going. Tamara was pregnant with Frankie in that time. We had the best time with four years together in Plainfield, Illinois. From getting together for dinner at the pizza place, mexican restaurant, July the 4th, birthdays, all the celebrations together. I remember when Frankie was born and we were at the hospital, his face was glowing when he had Frankie. He was a great dad with his kids and he was a great husband. When he mentioned about the job in Orlando, Florida. It sounded so amazing and finally, he was going back to Florida with a great opportunity. He had it all!!! He was a very lucky guy and he is now the guardian angel for his amazing wife and beautiful kids. WE ARE GOING TO MISS YOU FRANK. TAMARA, OLIVIA, SOPHIA and FRANKIE our hearts will always be with you.

    Frank, I'm going to miss your energetic and positive outlook. Your emails always started out with what I believe was the truth "I hope you are having a great day." We had some great times golfing together at the Universal Charity Classics...and while I know I was an easy target for my lack of golf skills, you did actually try to give me some pointers (to no avail...haha). You were always respectful, funny, full of life. I really am going to miss you around the office and I wish we would have done more outside of work.

    To Frank's family: My sincere condolences for your loss. I know it must be hard trying to understand why such a great man left this world too quickly. Know that he is an inspiration to many of those who had the pleasure to meet him and that he will be missed by many. God Bless

    Frank, was my nephew and he will be missed but never forgotten. My heart is heavy with thoughts about what his Mother (my sister) and his wife and children are going thru. He was a very strong person. Rest in Peace.

    Frank, I had a great time working with you to make the TDRV reality. I remember the good times we had sipping brews on the sunset strip after a long day, car-watching and celebrity spotting...Range Rovers really are like roaches out there. We saw Pauly Shore, talked to the guy who played Joe Jackson and saw Byron Allen holding court at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Not to mention the numerous people that looked like we should know who they are but couldn't quite put our finger on it.

    How many hours did we talk about batteries and chargers? Should have spent more time talking about Van Halen. Farewell my friend, it was a privilege to know you. I'm sorry you had to go. My deepest regards to the Hass family, may Frank's spirit always be with you.

    Frank was a very special person. I had the privilege of working with him the past four years. It was apparent to all that knew him that he loved life and his family very much. He was a very kind, considerate man. His positive attitude and inner strength were inspirational. He will be greatly missed and will always have a special place in my heart. Tamara, our thoughts and prayers are with you, the children and your family during this difficult time. May you find peace and comfort in the memories you cherish and in the love, care and concern of your family and friends who love you and share your loss.

    In 1996 I met a beautiful, bright, happy and very much in love young newlywed. She truly had the love of her life and in just a few years they brought their 1st daughter into the world and her career changed to full-time mom and they eventually added 2 more children. Tamara, you are a bright spot in the lives you touch. I think Frank's love for you made that glow even brighter and I know your love for him was his inspiration. You were a couple to be envied. Please accept Dale's and my deepest sympathy in your loss. Frank is gone from this life, but never forgotten.

    Frank was such an important part of our lives and we will miss him dearly. He was such a perfect nephew, husband, son, brother, and father plus I know he had many friends and co workers that I know will miss him. Frank is in heaven now and is no longer suffering with cancer. He will be looking down on his beloved wife and his sweet children ( all children should have a dad like him ) . We will remember Frank with such good memories and with loving thoughts. God Bless his family in this time of mooring.and help them get through the days ahead. We love you Frank and will see you again some day, so be watching for us.

    Picture it. Louie’s Ancient Chinese Tavern, Milwaukee, 1991.

    Girl meets Boy. Girl beats Boy at darts. (Or, Boy lets Girl beat him at darts because he REALLY likes her; it depends on who is telling the story.) Girl and Boy say good night without exchanging last names or phone numbers. Girl drags darts partner to MSOE library to pore through yearbooks – for hours – looking for Boy. (Girl is smitten.) Boy is flattered. Boy asks girl to Halloween party (their first date)…

    And the next thing you know, they are happily married with three beautiful children!

    I wish with all my heart that I could have written the latest chapter of their love story differently, but it will never really end. Hasses stick together, and Frank will be watching over his family from above.

    Frank and Tamara started out as my neighbor, but soon became "family". Frank was like a son to me and I will miss him terribly. He was an amazing man who fought the battle to the end with dignity and a strong faith in God. My heart aches for his loss but also for Tamara, Olivia, Sophia and Frankie who have to go on without him. I know the wonderful memories you have of Frank will help you though this difficult time. God Bless you and I love you. "Grandma Next Door".

    My family and I had the pleasure and good fortune to meet Frank, Tamara, and their wonderful family when they moved to Plainfield, Il. We shared a lot of laughs, hopes, dreams, and beers with them. We have prayed for Frank, Tamara, Olivia, Sophia, and Frankie endlessly. We are so sorry that Frank's journey has come to an end. However, we know that Frank will forever remain in all those hearts that he has touched along the way. We will continue to pray for you Tamara, as well as the kids. We hope that you will feel comforted in knowing that your "lobster" is in Heaven with God now, and will be forever smiling down on you and the kids. We love you!

    My family has lost a vital member, my Big Brother. He was an amazing son, brother, uncle, father and husband. He taught us all so much in the final years of his life. He will always be the closest thing to superman to me. Never miss an "opportunity" to hug the ones you love. I love you Frank!
