Keith Haas


Keith Haas passed away Au­gust 3, 2016, in his home in Marysville, Wash. He was 80.

Keith was born in At­wood, Col­orado on De­cem­ber 26, 1935 - the last of four boys born to his mother, Fran­cis and his fa­ther, Ge­orge. Af­ter grad­u­a­tion from high school in Couer d’Alene, Idaho, he served in the Army in Ger­many in the 50’s, worked in the Kel­logg, Idaho Mines with his broth­ers, and de­cided to bet­ter his life by at­tend­ing col­lege to be­come an elec­tri­cian. Af­ter his mar­riage, to Con­nie Good­man­son, he moved to Sitka, Alaska and worked at Alaska Lum­ber and Pulp. He loved the out­doors whether it was com­mer­cial fish­ing, hunt­ing, or work­ing in his yard.

Af­ter the clo­sure of ALP in Sitka, Keith took a job in Everett, Wash­ing­ton at Scott Pa­per and then Kim­berly Clark. It was in Marysville, where Keith and Con­nie set­tled for their golden years es­tab­lish­ing great friend­ships with neigh­bors, co-work­ers, and Alaska friends.

Keith loved his fam­ily. He was deeply sor­rowed when his beloved wife left this world in 2009.

He is sur­vived by his daugh­ter, Brenda (Richard) Calkins, grand­daugh­ters, Bryanne (Alex Knocke) and Brit­ley Calkins, and great­grand­daugh­ter, Christlyn Knocke and many cousins.

A cel­e­bra­tion of his life will be held in his yard on Septem­ber 10, 2016, at noon with a potluck to fol­low. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact his daugh­ter at brenda.calkins.2010@gmail. com.
