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

Three Years Ago Today. . . .

Three years ago today , the Cathedral High School Girls Cross Country team hung colorful streamers in the crabapple tree in our front yard as a show of support for their volunteer coach, Larry Haws. 

Larry died later that day, but the support from the Girls Country Team has continued with their remembrance on every anniversary. 

"We are thinking about you and Larry today and always.  We will never forget all the memories and lessons that Larry taught us.  We know he is with us always.  You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Have a blessed day!

Love from Cathedral Girls Cross Country "

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back..

Faye, It is hard to believe that Larry has been gone for 3 years! I still think of him often and miss my many mornings sharing coffee with him and sharing stories. I learned so much from Larry about politics, life, nature and just doing what is right no matter what others might think. He was a very courageous man and you two were such a great team. My thoughts and prayers are with you today as we all remember Larry, Steve
