Michael A. `Mike` Haller , Age 86


May 20, 1933 --November 21, 2019

 

Michael A. “Mike” Haller, age 86, of Baraboo, passed away on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at St. Clare Hospital in Baraboo while on hospice care, surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with cancer. Michael, son of Joseph and Agnes (Beer) Haller was born May 20, 1933 in Plain. He enlisted in the US Army on June 9, 1953 and proudly served in the 82nd Airborne Division until his honorable discharge on May 2, 1955. On July 23, 1955 he was united in marriage to Angeline “Angie” Reuter at St. Norbert’s Catholic Church in Roxbury.

 

Michael served as a mailman in Baraboo from 1960 until his retirement in 1988.   His true passion, however, was his business, Haller Antenna Service, that he and Angie ran for over 40 years in the Baraboo area.   He was self-taught in antenna and satellite installation and will be remembered as the local expert in television reception.

 

Michael dedicated much of his adult life to the various charities of the St. Vincent de Paul Association. He also served as President of the 82nd Airborne Division Association during his retired years and enjoyed many years as a member of the Optimist Club and the American Legion. He was an avid jigsaw puzzler and a fan of all Wisconsin sports teams with a special penchant for the Milwaukee Brewers.

 

He is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 64 years, Angie; children Kathleen (Ralph), Kenneth (Jan), Lisa (fiance David), Lori and Mark (Jody); grandchildren, Sarah (Ben), Joe, Brittany (fiance Adam), Anna, Nathanial, Forrest, Daria, August, Levi, and Silas; and sister Marie.

 

He was preceded in death by his parents; siblings Bill, Elsie, and Millie; and granddaughter Rachel.

 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2019 at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church with Father Jay Poster officiating. Visitation will be held on Monday, Dec. 2, 2019 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at Redlin Funeral Home as well as from 10 a.m. until the time of service at the church on Tuesday. Burial will follow at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery where military rites will be conducted. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the family.

 

The family would like to thank Dr Krszjzaniek, SSM St. Clare Meadows Rehabilitation Center and Hospice staff.
