Brother Quinten



It is with heavy hearts that we inform our Teamsters Local 638 members that Recording Secretary and North Dakota Business Agent Quinten Hausauer died on Thursday April 17, 2014. In the past 8 months he has been in a difficult battle enduring neck and back surgery followed by an episode with an extremely aggressive form of cancer that resulted in his unexpected death.


Please keep his wife Annette and family in your thoughts and prayers. If you would like to send them a message you can do so on his Tribute Wall at the funeral home website
