Daniel "Dan" Ray Haugen

Daniel Ray Haugen was born on July 19, 1957, in Watertown, SD, to Gerald and Joan (Flanagan) Haugen. The family lived in Mitchell, SD, until moving to Marshall in 1967. Dan graduated from Marshall High School in 1975. He obtained his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Minnesota and later his Law Degree from the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD. Dan practiced law in the Twin Cities. He later went to work doing underwriting for the Bank of America. After that office closed, he worked for Superior Exteriors Property Management in St. Paul.

I am so sorry to hear of Dan's passing. I never met him; only shared information on Ancestry as we share a family connection a few generations back from Cohoes, NY. He had not posted in a while so I looked him up only to find this notice. He seemed to be a lovely man. My condolences to the family.

I am sorry for your loss. Condolences to you and your family. I look forward to the time when "death is swallowed up forever." (1 Corinthians 15:54) When one of my family members passed away, I looked to my family for comfort, but most importantly, I received comfort from God's Word the Bible. Jesus likened death to sleeping. This is encouraging because people can be awakened from sleep. The Bible gives us hope of a resurrection In Revelation 21:4, God promises, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I look forward to that time and it helps me get by. I hope it is encouraging to you too.

Joan and family, hugs and prayers to each of you. I remember your family well as I only lived 3 doors down from you. Your boys Kevin and Tom used to stay with my children when we needed a sitter. Di Lalim (Jensen)
