Harlin "Babe" Czeschin

Harlin "Babe" Czeschin, age 74 of Bland, passed away suddenly on Sunday, November 15, 2015, at Phelps County Regional Center in Rolla.

Babe was born May 28, 1941, in Bland, a son to the late Louis C. and Albertina (Danuser) Czeschin.

He was a lifelong resident of the area, a 1959 graduate of Linn High School and a member of A New Beginnings Church in Belle where he was baptized on January 17, 2013

On August 26, 1972, he was united in marriage to Brenda Nipper at the courthouse in Linn. Brenda survives of their home in Bland.

Babe was employed at General Motors in Wentzville for 31 years before retiring on March 1, 1990. After retirement, he worked as a guide at the Oakcreek Ranch in Bland for 10 years.

Babe was a hunter and a lover of the outdoors. He liked to hunt deer and especially squirrels. He was a lifetime member of the N.R.A. Babe could play any sport and was good at all of them. He enjoyed watching college football and was a St. Louis Cardinal fan. Other hobbies included fishing, gardening, doing word puzzle and word search books, and playing Mahjong in his computer. His greatest joy, however, was being a grandpa and a great-grandpa. He will be missed by those who knew and loved him.
