Larry’s Story

The Irish say: 

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Larry William Haws

Long-time resident of St. Cloud, Larry Haws, died in his home on March 27, 2012, surrounded by his loving family.  Larry is survived by his wife, Faith, and their four children (Kelly, Shannon, Colleen and Ryan).  He loved the St. Cloud community and dared to "dream the impossible dream"  -- to imagine life as it should be and not as it was.  He modeled a life of service to others, and taught his children and eight grandchildren the power of "pride, prayer and perspiration" through his coaching and teaching.

The Haws family would like to thank the St. Cloud Hospital Home Healthcare/Hospice program whose professionalism sustained us these last fifteen months, and for the community's many kindnesses shown as you walked with us, never left our side, and held us tightly in prayer during this difficult journey.

Memorials are preferred to the Central Minnesota Community Foundation for the Larry Haws Family Fund that is being established in Larry's name:


101 South - 7th Avenue

St. Cloud, MN  56301

Two years ago. . . .

Thank you for remembering the two-year anniversary of Larry's death.  The Haws Family appreciates your prayers, sentiments and the visit from the Cathedral High School Girls Cross Country Team  who  honored us with a blooming plant.  One of my students offered a poem which he remembered from his grandfather's death:

"Those we love don't go away;
They walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near." 

The rememberance willow tree on the courthouse lawn is loaded with catkins--we hope that you'll stop and take a look at its promise of spring.
