Karl L. vonHahmann, age 56, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 following a four-year courageous battle with Multiple Myeloma.
Karl was born on April 24, 1964 in Cobleskill, NY, the eldest son of Milton and Louise vonHahmann. After graduation from Romulus Central School, he earned his Associates Degree in agricultural engineering from SUNY Morrisville and then joined the family business at Finger Lakes Tractor/Empire Tractor in Waterloo, where he worked for over 30 years. He was most recently employed in sales as a territory manager for Land Pride, based out of Salina, KS.
Karl is survived by his wife of 31 years, Tammy; his daughters, Cortney (Reik Laubenstein) of Berlin, Germany, who are expecting his first granddaughter later this winter, and Danielle (Kyle Christie) of Farmington; his parents, Milton and Louise vonHahmann of Ovid; brothers, Bryan (Sherri) vonHahmann of Medford, NJ and Kraig (Jill) vonHahmann of Ovid; his in-laws, Jesse (Laura) Jolly of Geneva; a brother-in-law, Jeff (Yvonne) Jolly of Geneva; his paternal aunts, Hazel and Gail vonHahmann; nieces and nephews, Adam, Jake, Leah, Tori, Taylor (Sam Rollo) and Paige; and his loyal German Shephard Diesel.
Besides being the best Papa Bear there was, he loved rooting for the NASCAR driver Chase Elliott, hanging out and tinkering in his barn, and camping with his family.
