Former Rep. David Hausam Dies


Former Arkansas Rep. David Hausam, a Bentonville Republican, died Saturday at his home, Doug Thompson of the Morning News of Northwest Arkansas reports. State Sen. Larry Teague offers a remembrance at his blog.

UPDATE: Also check these testimonies in this nice memorial piece from reporter Gary Lookado in Hausam’s hometown paper, the Benton County Daily Record.

Plus, a fine post-funeral reflection from Thompson:

Hausam laughed more than any state lawmaker I ever knew. Very few members of the legislature worked harder than he did. None enjoyed it more.

    David was our friend and coworker. He had a truly wonderful sense of humor and a great outlook on life. He was a pioneer in the areas of recyle sustainability in the Northwest Arkansas area, and was closley tied with many City governments working towards improving recycling within our local communities. He will be greatly missed by his many, many friends.

    Dave was a pillar in the area. In the 90s he was instrumental in pushing the City of Bentonville forward with now what we see today. His support of the regional airport, of solid waste issues, and later his service in the state house are only but a few of his accomplishments and his impact on us all in the area. I am proud to call Dave my friend and I will miss him very much.

  • David was a friend, and an inspiration. He will be missed deeply and often.

    What a great man. My thoughts go out to his family.

    David’s family has lost a loved one, Northwest Arkansas has lost a professional, a multitude of people have lost a friend and Jesus has gained someone to make him laugh. As a co-worker he was a rock. His word was his bond. If he told you a rooster dipped snuff, you could look under his wing and find a little round box. He will be sorely missed and fondly remembered.
