ORRVILLE — Delmar Dean Haun died Sunday, August 20, on the sixth anniversary of his wife’s death.  His caretaker and daughter, Debbie, and two of his granddaughters were at his side.  He was just shy of 96 years old and lived in Orrville.
Delmar was born October 5, 1927 to Walter and Elizabeth (Uhl) Haun.  He graduated from Killbuck High School.  After high school, he joined the Army-Air Corp where he enjoyed being stationed in Alaska.  He helped build the ALCAN highway in Big Delta. After leaving the Army, he worked at Briar Hill Stone.
He met his future wife, Edna, as she was waitressing in Millersburg and fell in love with her.  They married on December 25, 1951.  They moved to Orrville and he started at Westinghouse as a welder.  He retired from there after 36 years.  They had three children: Ricky Lee, Debra Lyn, and James Lowell.
Together they enjoyed traveling, especially to Siesta Key, Florida.  He loved walking the beach.  He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing and being in the woods.  One of his favorite things was being a grandpa and he loved spending time with his grandchildren, telling them jokes and funny stories.  He enjoyed many outings to the Killbuck VFW.
