Age 58, on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, of Castle Shannon, originally the North Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
Henry Anthony Mauser passed away peacefully in his home the first week of March.
Henry was born on March 17, 1964, in the North Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh. He was the third, and youngest child of the late Henry and Martha Mauser, and late brothers, Eric and Michael Mauser.
Henry Mauser, who was better known as Hank (or BigHam), was a big, big man with an even bigger heart.
Hank was a hard-working, loving, and loyal father who enjoyed helping others and went above and beyond to be there for his family and friends. He used his creativity and skills to build houses and homemade furniture and was known for his work as a master carpenter, plumber, and HVAC. He was an accomplished business owner of H.A.Mauser Construction. In his free time, Hank loved building cat furniture, and in the future he imagined selling and re-inventing the cat tree industry with hand-crafted pieces. He enjoyed watching football and hockey and was a big Steeler/Penguins fan. He loved being with friends and family, going up to camp, and riding motorcycles and quads. He especially loved his Harley-Davidson.
The passing of his daughter, Joelle, left Henry with an awfully broken heart. Joelle was his first child and was the light of his life. Anyone close to Hank knew how much her death continued to impact his daily life. The verse Revelation 21:4 brings us hope that he is no longer in pain, “he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Hank left behind his son Brad, but in his passing has reunited with his late daughter Joelle, father, mother, and two brothers. He also leaves behind many dear friends and family, as well as his cat, Malcolm, and turtle, Timmy.
Hank was a gentle giant of a man with an enormous heart. He was selfless and would take the shirt off his back to help someone in need. He will be remembered for his megaphone cheers when the Pens scored a goal, cruising on his motorcycle, midnight phone calls and enjoying a sippy with his friends and family.
Friends received FRIDAY 6 - 8:30 pm at TIMOTHY K. SLATER Funeral Services, Inc. (412-381-3337) 425 Brownsville Road, Mt. Oliver, 15210, where a funeral service will be held at 8:30 pm.
