Takaza J. Wolf Dan R. Hauschild(1/1/1976-3/26/2017), was a furry fan native of Northeastern Illinois, USA. He lived with husband, Duncan da Husky, in Volo, Illinois.
Takaza first found the furry fandom in 1995 through his interest in The Lion King. He joined TLKMUCK and FDCMuck soon after, and subsequently FurryMUCK and Furtoonia. On Furtoonia, he learned of ChiFur, a mailing list for furs in his area, and became active with the Chicago-area furry group which is known today as the Lake Area Furry Friends. This led to his working with Robert King at Duckon 7 and 8 (1998-1999). He was one of the creators of BaltoMUCK, playing Balto, a wizard there, and was part owner of foxfur.com where it was hosted. Takaza was a member of both the Board of Directors and staff of Midwest FurFest since its inception, serving as Hotel Liaison (2000, 2006 - 2009), Publications Director (2000 - 2003, 2006 - 2007), and Convention Chairman (2004 - 2005, 2010 - 2011). He also served as Newsletter Editor for Anthrocon (2003 - 2005), and managed the Anthrocon Cash Office from 2002 - 2010. Additionally, he was Dealers Room Director at Mephit Furmeet in 2001 and was part of Operations staff at Further Confusion in 2014.
