Dr. Craig Alan Hasselschwert, DDS, 70, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, February 19, 2020.

Craig was born on March 29, 1949 to Bernard and Evelyn (Gitter) Hasselschwert in Defiance, Ohio. After graduating from Defiance High School in 1967, he went on to earn his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Toledo and later received his Doctor of Dental Surgery at The Ohio State University. On September 1st, 1972 he married the love of his life, Jane Curtzwiler. After dental school, Craig served as a dentist in the United States Navy stationed in Memphis, Tennessee. Upon completion of his military service, Craig and Jane returned to Defiance, where he opened his dental practice on North Clinton Street.

After retiring from dentistry in 2016, Craig enjoyed working on his golf game, traveling with Jane, and spending time with his family and friends on Lake George, Michigan and in Fort Myers, Florida. He was honest and hardworking and was a dedicated and loving husband, father, brother, grandpa and friend. Craig was a shining example of integrity and a true family man, and his calm demeanor, dry humor, and easy laugh will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Craig is survived by his children Curt Hasselschwert of Queens, New York and Megan (Jason) Daugherty of Kansas City, Missouri; his sister Karin (Kim) Weldy of Archbold, Ohio; his brother Gary (Patty) Hasselschwert of Boston, Massachusetts; his grandchildren Keller & Maren Daugherty of Kansas City; brother-in-law John (Beth) Curtzwiler of Defiance and several nieces & nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, Jane, and his parents.

A celebration of Craig and Jane’s lives will be held on May 2nd from 1-4 PM at Glendarin Golf Club in Angola, Indiana.

Curt and Megan, my wife, Cindy and I got to know your folks well in Florida. They both had that quiet and dry sense of humor that I really appreciated. I golfed with your dad many, many times and he was part of our "Just One More" club on Tuesday nights. Pizza, wings and beer. Always a great time with plenty of laughs. Your mom always had that smile that seemed like she had one more funny thing to say. We will truly miss them. God bless and may you find peace knowing they were such great people. Stan and Cindy Kasper.

I only worked with Dr. Hasselswart a year before he retired but he showed me honest hard work without any complaints. He was a pleasure to work under. He was loved by everybody. He will be greatly missed.
