Posted in Preston Obituaries

Harvey R. Haugstad, 86, of rural Preston passed away at Chatfield Chosen Valley Care Center May 7, 2016 following five months of illness.

Born Harvey Reuben Haugstad on June 29, 1929 in Lanesboro, he was the youngest of eight children to John and Isabella (Nesja) Haugstad and a Lanesboro High School class graduate of 1947. He married Marian L. Christensen in Preston, on December 6, 1958 and lived the majority of his life in Rochester, where together they raised their family.

He worked for 30 years in road construction the majority as a construction superintendent with Leon Joyce Construction retiring in 1987 and devoted his next 20 years to farming near Preston. In his spare time, he enjoyed reading, and sharing his vast knowledge of family history. Throughout his life, Harvey shared stories of his father’s lineage having originated near Ringebu, Norway in the Gudbrandsdalen Valley and his mother’s family in Norway’s Valdres district.

In 1994, Harvey and Marian left Rochester and returned to Marian’s childhood home in rural Preston where they resided until his beloved wife’s death in 2010. He lived his remaining years independently at the family farm enjoying the peacefulness of country living and tirelessly worked to improve the family farm for future generations.

Harvey was a gentle man known for his many acts of kindness, spoke kindly of others, and always encouraged those he met to be “kind and gentle” for a more peaceful world. Through his positive ways, he left others feeling valued, appreciated and most importantly loved. He was a devoted and nurturing husband and father and was an illustrious role model to his three sons, grand and great-grandchildren whom he cherished. He gave hugs freely and self-proclaimed himself as “Fillmore County’s champion hugger” that without doubt he certainly was. He was a long-time and active member of the Preston United Methodist Church.

Harvey will be missed though always remembered for all he gave this world.

Harvey was preceded in death by his wife of 51 years Marian. Survivors include his son, Allan and wife Karen (Champlin, MN) and their children Mark (Amanda) Elk River, MN and Matthew (Valerie) Moorhead, MN; son, Brian and wife Marcia (Minneapolis) and their children Noah, Emma and Isabella; and son, Howard and wife Kimberly (Menomonee Falls, WI) and their children Benjamin and Jonathan.
