The Cal Poly Pomona community will celebrate the life of William “Bill” Hauser, a former mechanical engineering professor who had a passion for working with students.
An event honoring his memory is scheduled Saturday, Dec. 2 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kellogg West Conference Center & Hotel.
Hauser died at home on Oct. 17, six days after turning 88. He served as a mechanical engineering professor from 2002 to 2016.
He was a man of many passions, which including building and flying airplanes, fishing, biking, math and engineering. The Korean War veteran also was an avid skier into his early 80s.
“He worked at several aerospace companies, but no job ever gave him the joy and fulfillment of being a professor at Cal Poly Pomona,” said his wife, Doris Hauser.
Hauser is survived by his wife of 66 years, Doris; four daughters, 12 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
The family asks that no flowers be sent.
Doris Hauser has established the Bill Hauser Memorial Scholarship fund at the Regional Occupational Program Bridge Foundation and is accepting donations at the celebration event.
The celebration includes a luncheon with limited seating. To RSVP for the luncheon or for more information about how to donate to the scholarship fund, contact Lita Patel at email@example.com or 909-869-2575.
