Terrytown/Simmesport

Larry Anthony Hauck, a cherished member of the Terrytown Louisiana community, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 31, 2024 in Simmesport, Louisiana. He was born and raised in the vibrant city of New Orleans, Louisiana on April 30, 1933. 

Larry was preceded in death by his wife, Audree Quintana-Hauck, and his second wife, Arlene White-Hauck; parents, Edward Hauck Sr. & Elvin M. Caruso-Hauck; and his stepparents, August J. Caruso & Anne M. (Laborde) Hauck. Larry joins his siblings: Audrey M. Hauck-Barrios, Elvin “Pat” Hauck-Ohler, Edward Hauck Jr., Deolores Hauck, Stanley J. “Sam” Hauck, Sylvia Hauck, and Frederick C. “Fred” Hauck; and in-laws, Robert Ohler, Tony Barrios, and Joan Hauck in eternal rest.

Larry is survived by his beloved son, Kevin and his wife, LouAnna; stepdaughter, Lucinda Venezia; his grandchildren, Michael, Joseph, and Celeste; sisters-in-law, Catherine Hauck (Warren) and Gloria Hauck; and numerous special loving nieces and nephews. He was also blessed with a close friend, Dennis Bernard, who was like a son to him. Larry and Dennis shared a special bond forged through their years, working together at Western Electric.

Growing up in the 1940s, amidst three brothers and two sisters Larry found his rhythm early on playing drums alongside his father in their family band and later in his brother’s band. At an early age, Larry discovered his love for boxing and boxed for the New Orleans Athletic Club. His dedication to the sport only grew stronger as he embarked on a new journey by joining the United States Marine Corp at the age of 17. He was stationed at Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California, where he met his wife Audree Quintana from New Mexico. During his time in the U.S. Marines, Larry continued to showcase his tenacity and skills in the boxing ring, earning the nickname “Kid Hauck.” His passion for boxing led him to compete in the Golden Gloves, leaving a mark as a leader in and out of the ring. 

After his military service, Larry and Audree moved back to his beloved New Orleans where they raised their son Kevin. Larry’s professional path led him to Western Electric as a warehouse supervisor where he dedicated himself until his retirement. Even in retirement, Larry’s spirit of adventure persisted as he worked as a hotshot, traveling the country to deliver much needed supplies. In 1975, he met his second wife and married Arleen White in Terrytown, Louisiana and embraced Arleen‘s five year old daughter, Lucinda, with open arms, instantly becoming a loving father figure. He and Arlene spent retirement golfing and traveling. Music was Larry’s constant companion throughout his life, a dedicated karaoke enthusiast, he often shared the stage with his younger brother, Fred, entertaining at family gatherings.

In addition to his professional pursuits, Larry was deeply committed to giving back to his community through volunteer work with organizations, such as the Lions Club and American Legion. An avid fan of the New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers, Larry held season tickets to Saints games and cherished the moments spent cheering on his favorite team with his son by his side.

Larry’s kindness, sense of humor and his enduring love and positive attitude will live on in his family and all who loved him. We love you Dad!

Interment services will be held at the National Cemetery in Santa Fe, New Mexico at a later date.
