Gail Wilhelm Haut (1917-2007)
Gail W. Haut, MD, loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and dedicated physician passed away on Aug. 19, 2007, at age 90 in Bakersfield, Calif.
Gail was born on June 17, 1917, in Manhattan in New York City, NY as the only child of Gustav and Eva Haut. He grew up in Manhattan and the Bronx, attending Peter Stuyvesant High School where he became intrigued with the study of science, especially biology and chemistry.
Following his undergraduate work at Columbia University, Gail obtained his MD from the Long Island School of Medicine. In the midst of WWII Gail married Margaret Silbernagel on July 25, 1942, and was called to active military duty later that year.
During his tour of duty with the Army, Gail was sent to China where one of his assignments was to accompany an interpreter by horseback along the Indo-Chinese border to oversee the administration of vaccine to Chinese troops. During his service in the army, Gail rose from the rank of lieutenant to captain and ultimately to major. While he was in China, his first son, David, was born. After his return to the US in 1945, Gail lived in the New York-New Jersey area and trained to specialize in the field of radiology. His daughter, Virginia, was born during this time.
In 1952, Gail and Margaret moved to eastern Utah where he was the only radiologist in the area for 15 years. Eventually they would add three more children to the family while Gail worked at the regional hospital in Price, Utah. For a time, he served as chief of staff at the Price Hospital and is credited with leading that hospital to accreditation and the high standard of medical care that accompanied such certification.
Motivated to learn more in the field of radiology and nuclear medicine, Gail moved his family again in 1966, this time to Minnesota where he served on the faculty of the University of Minnesota's School of Medicine. In 1970, Gail moved his family one last time to Bakersfield where he worked at Mercy Hospital (Truxtun Avenue) as a radiologist for more than 20 years.
While living in Bakersfield, Gail was a founding member of the Kern County Right to Life Committee in 1970 and served on the board for several years. He also served on the board for the Kern County Sunday School Association for many years and was a member of both Laurelglen Bible Church and Kern City Community Church.
Gail is survived by his wife of 65 years, Margaret; his five children, son, David, Hawaii; daughter, Ginger ( Cal Evans) Rhode, Sandy, Utah; son, Andrew( Debbie)Haut, Bakersfield, Calif.; daughter, Debbie (Joe) Castaneda, Layton, Utah; son, John, Monrovia, Calif.; 11 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; eight nieces and nephews.
He will be remembered for his generous and ever-cheerful nature and an endless supply of jokes and puns. His children and grandchildren will remember him as a man who lived his faith.
