May 5, 2021 - January 28, 2022
Augustine “Auggie” Fredrick Hachten was born on May 5, 2021 to Ben and Riley Hachten in Louisville, Kentucky. He was baptized into the Roman Catholic faith on June 6, 2021 by Fr. John Paul Kern, O.P., at St. Louis Bertrand Church. On January 28, 2022, the feast day of St. Thomas Aquinas, Auggie entered eternal life, where he will gaze forever upon the King of Kings in glory and intercede for us living. Auggie is survived by his parents, Ben and Riley, whose love for him remains unceasing, two sets of loving grandparents (Mike and Stacy Gavin and Dale Hachten and Beth Boehm), several aunts (Clare Hachten, Jane Gavin, and Amanda Gavin) and two uncles (Michael Gavin and Blair Gavin), five cousins (Reese, William, Rowan, Declan, and Mason), and other extended family, loved ones, and friends. Although Auggie’s time on earth was far too short, his life will echo in eternity. He was one of the happiest babies in the world. He had the deepest belly laugh, which could be provoked in an instant by the smallest of events like the family dog licking his bare feet. He was unquestionably the extension of the love shared between his mother and father. Like his father, he loved to talk, watch college football, and be at Mass (or at least he rarely complained). Like his mother, he loved praying the rosary (he preferred to chew on his) and making people feel loved and at home in his presence. He had the world’s cutest smile and the cutest pouty face, often displaying them both within seconds of one another. He loved dinner time with mom and bath time with dad, and mom and dad loved every moment of it too. There were so many things he loved, but most of all, he loved people and loved to bring light wherever he went. Auggie brought indescribable joy first to his parents and then to everyone else who was fortunate enough to behold him, even for just a little while. He will live on in the hearts and minds of those who loved him. Although a small baby, he lived a big life – with joy, openness, curiosity, presence, and total abandonment to Divine Providence. He didn’t waste a moment. He was the epitome of what it means to be childlike, and it is fitting that he will enter the Kingdom that way. By his life, Auggie taught us how to live. “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” Auggie, you get to rest in the Lord now. Augustine Fredrick Hachten, requiescat in pace. Pray for us. Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him. 1 John 4: 7-9. The visitation will be on Tuesday, February 1, from 4-7 pm at Pearson Funeral Home, 149 Breckenridge Lane, Louisville, KY, 40207. A funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday, February 2 at 9:30 a.m. at St. Louis Bertrand Church, 1104 S. 6th St., Louisville, KY 40203. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Little Way Pregnancy Resource Center, Franciscan Kitchen, or Lifehouse Maternity Home.
