Kenneth Edward Haase, age 65 of Erie, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, January 10, 2024 at his home. 

Born August 17, 1958 in Trenton, MI. He was one of three children of the late Kenneth and Jane (Deneau) Haase. Ken attended Trenton High School and later received his GED. 

After school, Ken worked for his father in the family business called Haase Heating and Cooling. The company was originally started by his grandfather. The name later changed to Ken Haase Heating and Cooling. He did this his whole life until he retired in 2016. 

In his free time, you could find Ken in his “office” which was the garage he took over. He loved to be in there all day listening to country or rock music while tinkering. He was Mr. Fix it and was very handy. He also liked to fish, tent camp wherever he could, and build car models. Ken was also an animal lover and previously had ferrets, cats, and dogs. 

Beloved father of Kenneth Milton II and Ashley Marie Worthington. Loving grandfather or also affectionately called “Old Fart” of Fayth, Keith, and Seth. Dearest brother of Gayle (Jan) Haase, Becky (Jamie) Hines, and Shane (Ginnie) Haase. Dear uncle of Janessa, Alicia, Jordan, Devon, and Shane Jr.  Stepbrother of Frank (Erin), Susan, Mark (Cheryl), Billy (Lisa), and Teddy (Claire). Also survived by significant other for the past 20 years: Mary Mattice. 

In addition to his parents, Ken was preceded in death by grandson: Isaiah; brother: George & Jackie Haase; stepfather: Richard Hines; stepmother: Margaret “Peggy” Lawrence Haase; and stepsister: Mary Hobbs. 

In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place with no services at his time. The family plans a memorial service at a later date. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Rupp Funeral Home.
