William Hauptman Obituary

On Wednesday, May 10, 2023, William F. Hauptman, died at the Kline House in Frederick not far from his home with his loved ones with him.

He was born at Old Sibley Hospital in Washington, DC on January 8, 1927 to Gerhardt and Elizabeth Hauptman.

He is predeceased by his loving wife of 47 years, Dorothy V. (Lamson). He is survived by five children Cynthia, Christine, Victor (Margaret), Bill (Trudy) and Jacqueline (Russ). He has six wonderful grandchildren John (Haley), Matthew, Kyle (Kaitlyn), Rachel (Ryan), Leanne (Evan), and Robert (Mary).

He has three incredible great grandchildren Hayden, Jordan, Reece and another little one on the way. He also leaves behind many loved extended family and friends. He was a World War II Navy Veteran who received his father's permission to join when he was 17 years of age. He served in the South Pacific receiving the Pacific Theater Ribbon, the American Theater Ribbon and the Victory Medal. Upon his return he completed his education and went on to graduate with his Masters from George Washington University. He was a teacher, supervisor and administrator for the Montgomery County Public Schools and also taught and coached at Montgomery College.

He was a lifetime member of the American Legion Post 171 and the VFW Post 1007 and a member of the MCPS Retired Teachers Association. He was a sports enthusiast - playing them all his life and then enjoying being an avid fan in his later years. He traveled the world and country. He had lifelong friends and made new friends always. His family will miss him dearly. He was our compass in life and will continue to be. He was a man of deep faith, integrity, charity and strength.
