About H&H Optical & Hearing

Clark first started in the optical industry 1974 in Red Deer as an apprentice Optical Dispenser working for Karl Hauck at Hauck Opticians. Donna met Clark while she was attending Red Deer College. In 1975 they decided to get married and continued to live in Red Deer until the spring of 1976 when they moved to Stettler where Clark was promoted to manager of the Hauck Opticians located there.

That is where they started their family. Mr. and Mrs. Hauck started a new chain of optical stores in the early 1980’s called H&H Optical. The Drumheller location opened it’s doors in 1981 by Karl and Helga Hauck and four employees who were now their partners. Clark Layden, Dick Huebner. Dale Ward, and Tom Todd. After a series of managers, it was decided that Clark and Donna would move from Stettler to Drumheller, and Clark would take over the management of H&H Optical in October 1984.
