Ervin Henry Hamann,
March 12, 1927 — April 4, 2017
Ervin Henry Hamann was called to his eternal rest on April 4, 2017, at the age of 90. He was born in Thiensville on March 12, 1927, and entered the loving arms of his Savior at the Hospice facility in St. Augustine, Fla.
Ervin was the only son of Ervin Henry Hamann Sr. and Alma (Musbach) Hamann. Both parents preceded him in death.
He is survived by his children, Dale Hamann and wife Peggy of Cedarburg; Maureen (Dolly) Coppola and her husband Fred of Boynton Beach, Fla.; and Daniel Hamann of Gainesville, Fla. Ervin is also survived by two grandchildren, Heather and Ryan; two great-grandchildren, Amber and Izabella; and his former wife, Marion (Wilde) Hamann.
Ervin was a graduate of Cedarburg High School in 1944. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the Army and spent one tour of duty in the European theater of operation, finishing his deployment near Frankfurt, Germany.
Upon returning home, he began to work for a general contractor in the Cedarburg/Grafton area. Shortly afterwards, he formed his own home building company and built over 750 houses in Ozaukee County and areas beyond. In 1970, Ervin closed down the building operations and moved to Lake Worth, Fla. In Lake Worth, he purchased a tavern called the Mambo Bar which was very successful until he sold the business in 1984.
From that point on, Ervin split time between Florida and Wisconsin keeping busy with various building projects until 2008, when he ultimately settled in Gainesville, Fla.
There will be a memorial celebration at the last home he built in Gainesville, Fla., on July 8, 2017. As a military veteran, he will be interned at the VA cemetery in St. Augustine, Fla.
