Obituary for Bernard John "Hap" Udelhoven

Bernard John "Hap" Udelhoven, 89, formerly of Dickeyville, Wisconsin, died Saturday, January 5, 2019, at Four Winds Manor in Verona, Wisconsin. Services will be 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 8, 2019, at Holy Ghost Church in Dickeyville, Wisconsin with Rev. Bernard Rott officiating. Burial will be in the Holy Ghost Cemetery. Friends may call from 4-5:45 p.m. Tuesday at the church before the service. Casey Funeral Home & Cremation Services of Cuba City is handling arrangements.

Hap was born on March 5, 1929, in Platteville, Wisconsin, the son of Bernard J. and Nellie (Risic) Udelhoven, Sr. He married his late sweetheart Florida "Fritz" Ginter on September 1, 1951, and together raised four children.

His nickname "Happy" fit him well. Hap lived a long, rewarding life that touched many people. From his early life as a two-time Golden Gloves boxer to his time spent as a cook in the National Guard and lineman for Interstate Power, his career path and life’s passion was finally set in 1956 when he and fellow Pack worker, George Banworth, pooled their resources to start Banworth and Udelhoven Furniture in Platteville, WI. The business eventually expanded to five stores across three states. Hap sold his interest in B&U in 1982 but remained active in the furniture industry well into retirement.

Hap and Fritz enjoyed a long and loving marriage of 62 years. Together they traveled the world, were actively involved as devout Catholics in their local churches, and were devoted to spending time with their children and grandchildren. Hap also loved golf, fishing, and hunting.

He is survived by two sons: Michael (Dana) Udelhoven of Batavia, IL and Mark (Terri) Udelhoven of Vandalia, MO, two daughters: Cheryl Pieper (Chuck Boyer) of Verona, WI, and Lori Scharf of Oshkosh, WI; six grandchildren: Eric (Mary) Udelhoven & Lauren Udelhoven (Doug Cefala), Sara & Casey Pieper, Todd Udelhoven, and Maggie Scharf; one great-grandchild, Collin Udelhoven; and a sister, Mary (Udelhoven) Hoff.
Hap was preceded in death by his wife, Fritz; his brother, Leonard and sister, Helen; and son-in-law Curt Pieper.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Mark Liaboe for years of care in Dubuque, IA, and also the staff at the Cove at Four Winds Manor and Agrace Hospice.

Shortly before he passed, one of Hap's last utterances was "Gotta get to gettin'." Heaven will have its hands full.
