Douglas Robert Hahn, 68, of White, Georgia, formerly of Dysart, Iowa, died February 20, 2017 in Georgia from respiratory complications.
Doug was born in Waterloo, Iowa on August 13, 1948, the son of Robert Hahn and Betty Leo Hahn. He was raised on a farm west of Dysart, Iowa and graduated from Dysart High School in 1966. Doug received a BS degree from Wartburg College and a Masters/PhD from the University of North Dakota in wildlife biology.
Doug was a well-respected environmental biologist during his career, living in many southern states. He was a lifelong avid hunter, first with guns on the family farm, and later as an accomplished bow and arrow big game hunter. He proudly displayed more than 200 animals in his home, many of which were record trophies from around the world.
Doug married Joyce Goosen on June 12, 1969; they later divorced. Together they had one daughter, Tamara Jo Hahn.
Doug is survived by his mother, Betty Hahn, and his sister, Mary Rix, both in Oregon, his brother, Bill Hahn in California, and his two grand daughters, Alexa and Jenna Brockel in Kansas. He was preceded in death by his father, Robert and by his daughter, Tamara.
To respect Doug's wishes, there will be no memorial service. A private interment will take place at a later date in the cemetery in Dysart, Iowa. Memorials may be given to the charity of the donor's choice.
