Obituary For Harold Lloyd Havens
Harold Lloyd Havens, born on July 19, 1937 to Burton and Jacoba (Vanden Burg) Havens in Carson, North Dakota. He attended a country one-room schoolhouse through the eighth grade and graduated from Flasher High School. While in high school, Harold was active in football and basketball. When he was 16 years old, he made his first big purchase – a custom-made saddle paid for with his earnings from breaking wild horses and trapping mink, muskrat, and beaver on the farm creek. He married his high school sweetheart, Luanne Cowan, on July 22, 1955. Harold worked as a ranch hand in Valentine, Nebraska before attending telegraph school in Salt Lake City, Utah. He became a telegraph operator in Selah, Ellensburg, Easton and then Lester, Washington and retired as a dispatcher for the Burlington Northern Railroad. Harold loved to hunt, fish and camp with his horses and mules. He was a master at fixing things and loved his animals. Harold enjoyed attending events for his children and grandchildren. In his later years, he loved spending time at the cabin he built in Idaho. Harold is preceded in death by his wife, Luanne, and his two sons, Jeff and Scott. He is survived by sisters, Clendora and Marilyn, his brother Alvin, his sons Tim (Janine), Butch (Jaime), daughters Sheryl, Debbie, his grandchildren, Garrett, Troy (Ashley), Stanley, Kyle, Kinsey, Luke (Julia), Aanya, Savannah and Kael, and great granddaughters, Elouise and Maren.
