Hans was the beloved husband of Maria Waidelich and loving father of Irmgard Burkel, Lori (Dr. Richard Bernstein DDS) Waidelich, and Timothy Waidelich. He was the proud grandfather of Matthew (Casey) Burkel, Steven (Annie) Burkel, Henry Waidelich, and Amelia Waidelich; dear great-grandfather of Ellie and Zoey; and brother of the late Freda. Our deepest sympathy to his loving family and special condolences to our dear members Maria and Tim.
