Melvin Michael “Mike” Hauser, 34, of Fruitland, died Sept. 1, 2004.

Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 4, at Riverside Cemetery in Payette, Idaho. Pastor Dick Wilson will officiate.

Visitations will be until 7 o’clock tonight at Shaffer-Jensen Memory Chapel in Payette. Services and arrangements are under the direction of Shaffer-Jensen Memory Chapel.

Mike was born to Marietta and Melvin Hauser on Feb. 1, 1970, at La Grande. He attended Brooklyn Elementary School and Baker High School at Baker City.

He earned an associate’s degree at Treasure Valley Community College in law enforcement and was employed at the Snake River Correctional Facility for six years and the New Plymouth Police Department for two years.

During college, and several years after graduating, he was employed at the Gulf Pacific Cattle Company. In his younger years, he spent his summers working on his grandfather’s ranch at Joseph.

Words that come to mind as we think fondly of Mike include adorable son and brother, loving father, true friend, personality plus sense of humor, sensitive, lover of nature, avid hunter, fisherman and boater. The ultimate enjoyment for Mike was spending time with his 3-year-old son, Trevor.

He is survived by his wife, Layna; his son, Trevor; his parents, Melvin and Marietta Hauser; brother, Kelly; sister, Michele; niece, Kyrie and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Merle Alford of Joseph and Richard and Mary McLaughlin of Payette.

Mike will be deeply missed by all who knew him and they will cherish the many memories they have of him.
Memorials may be made to the Trevor Hauser Educational Fund or to the charity of one’s choice in care of Shaffer-Jensen Memory Chapel, P.O. Box 730, Payette, ID 83661.
