GUILDERLAND – William P. “Willie” Hauser, 37, of Guilderland died suddenly on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at his residence. Born in Albany on September 19, 1981, Willie was the son of Barbara Hauser of Johnstown, and William Delligan of Delanson.
Willie was a graduate of Guilderland Central High School, where he played both offensive and defensive line for the Flying Dutchmen. He was a security guard for many years prior to establishing Capitol Region Carpet Cleaning. He enjoyed working out at the gym, cooking, yard work, hiking, golfing, and shooting pool. Willie loved animals, playing basketball, and his guitars. His favorite guitarist was Kurt Hammond, however, he enjoyed playing “Tears in Heaven.” He loved the New York Knicks, and the New England Patriots.
Willie was a man of few words, however, the love for his sisters and their children was evident. “In my eyes he was my protector.” “He was always there for me when I needed him.” “My brother was a kind hearted man, unlike any other.”
He is survived by Rhoads, his beloved Bearded Dragon; his parents Barbara Hauser and William Delligan (Stacy); his sisters Jessica Hauser of Middleburgh, Jacqueline Rothaupt and Angela Webster both of Amsterdam, and Alisha Delligan of Delanson; his brothers Steven and Kevin Delligan; his three nieces Keirsten, Addyson, and McKenna; six nephews Warren, James, J.J., Julius, Dominic, and Elius; and life long cousins and best friends Rob, Scott, and John. He was a beloved member of our family and will always be missed, but never forgotten.
