In Memory

Mr. 'Dolph Haug

 

 

 

It is with great sadness that I share with you the passing of my beloved husband of 57 years on February 16, 2020.  He loved teaching, coaching, and mentoring the students of Paramus for 35 years and it was our joy to reside in Paramus for 52 years.  

Below is the story of a man who gave his all to help every student be successful.


 

Adolph ('Dolph) Henry Haug of Pompton Plains, New Jersey formerly of Paramus, New Jersey passed away on Sunday, February 16, 2020, just one week shy of his 94th birthday.  He graduated from Public School Number One and Memorial High School in West New York, NJ. 

After graduation, he was drafted into the Navy and served his country proudly during World War II.  He later graduated from Seton Hall University with a Bachelor of Science from the School of Business in Business Administration/Management.  He also earned a Master of Arts degree in Personnel and Guidance from Montclair State University (formerly Montclair State College).  He enjoyed a successful career as a Business Education Teacher in the Paramus School System for 35 years. 

Throughout his life, ‘Dolph was an active member of the church.  He served as an Elder and in many other capacities at Trinity Presbyterian Church, formerly located in Paramus and before that at Christ Reformed Church in Union City.  He was a member of NEA, NJEA, NJREA, BCEA, BCREA, and EAP.  In his free time, ‘Dolph enjoyed Seton Hall sports, The Yankees, Little League baseball, golf, reading, and traveling.  As a young adult, he coached Little League baseball in West New York and later coached JV and Varsity Bowling at Paramus High School for most of his career.

Beloved husband of Patricia (nee: McGlone) for 57 years, devoted father of Diane E. Moore and her husband LTC Douglas W. Moore of Burke, VA and Glenn M. Haug and his wife Dr. Pamela Burke-Haug of Fair Lawn, NJ.  He was also the proud grandfather of Eliana E. Moore, Isabella S. Moore, Madison Haug, and Matthew J. Haug and dear brother-in-law of Janet M. Edwards.

Mr. Haug was my math teacher in 1962.  I was in his class with many of the hooligans from the class of '64.  We were not the best of students, acting up as kids often do, and and that's putting it mildly.  If you were in that class with me, you know what I mean.  It's one of those things in life I wish I had done differently. 

After high school Mr. Haug and my father Pops became good friends.  He would visit with my father often, and I got to know him as a person.  He was invited to and attended all of my father's birthday parties.  Without exception, for 50+ years I apologized to him every time I saw him for making his job more difficult than need be.  He would always say, "You really weren't so bad Kenny."  He asked me to call him 'Dolph, but that was never going to happen.  He was, and always will be Mr. Haug, as all of my teachers are Mr. or Mrs. out of respect.

He was always a very nice, soft spoken man with infinite patience.  Never once did he raise his voice.  He really wanted us to learn.  By the end of that semester, we all learned to admire and respect him for who he was and the personal interest he took in us.

Mr. Haug was my Bowling coach '86 - '90.  Not sure I had ever picked up a bowling ball before joining the team.  Made the team; I remember him saying at one point 'you can't yet bowl a 100 average'- at the time, I thought it was so high; in retrospect, it was such a low bar.   Thanks for taking the time to coach us, and sharing your encouragement.

Thank you Mr Haug for teaching me about credit, debit, balance sheets and other business math that stuck with me my whole life. I'm glad we got to chat at my 50th reunion. Always a Spartan......H
