Marvin Donald Haug

October 30, 1927April 11, 2019

Raise a toast to one of the greatest men we have been blessed to have in our lives. Marvin was born October 30, 1927 in Papillion, NE to Carl and Helen (Paustian) Haug. He was the youngest of his siblings Alois, Bud, Norman and Helen. He was raised in the Papillion area, and when he was young, in Kimball County for a short while. Grandpa Haug was unable to handle the altitude out here and they moved back to the Papillion area, where he went through the 8th grade, and had to quit school to help out on the farm after his father’s death. Marvin always said that school was fine until “they started to add the alphabet, that was enough”. When he was old enough he would travel back to Kimball County with his brother, Bud, to help with the harvest Marvin married his soulmate, Marilyn Catherine Love, on July 19, 1951. To this union there were four daughters born, Joyce, Janice, Janeie and Julie. They moved back to Kimball County in 1953, where he farmed and he and his brother Bud owned and operated Haug Brothers water well drilling. In 1953 he and Marilyn bought the house in Bushnell where he resided until 2018 when, due to health issues he moved to Sidney Extended Care until his death. When the garage was built, Daddy had Julie put her handprint in the cement with a dime in it. We grew up thinking that little handprint grew money, as every time he walked by there he would put a dime in it. In 1967 Joyce came home and said “look who I found, can we keep her?” Daddy and Mom became guardians for Ethel Kilbern and we were so blessed with another sister. Marvin owned and operated Plains Pellet Co. from 1964 until 1975, when he returned to his passion, farming until he retired in 2005. Even in retirement he and Janeie were feeding lambs for Halligan’s sheep dairy in Bushnell. In 1987 he was awarded the “Aksarben Good Neighbor” award and in 1985 he and mom were Grand Marshalls for Bushnell Day. Daddy loved woodworking and was an accomplished carpenter. Several homes were remodeled or reshingled by him over the years. He even made some of the wooden street address signs in Bushnell. We were so blessed to have a daddy that could make or fix anything. When he was not working he enjoyed camping, fishing and hunting. However, of all his life accomplishments, he was most proud of his family. Preceded in death by his parents, four siblings, wife Marilyn, daughter Janice and grandson Elliott. At Marvin’s request he was cremated and there will be no service. Inurnment will be at a later date. Survived by daughters Joyce and Bob Vrbka, Janeie and Ricky Dickinson, Julie and Vince Gabel, Ethel and Louis German, 12 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. Sisters-in-law Florence Haug, Jean Anderson, Mary Rothermund, brother-in-law LeRoy Love and their families. He was “Daddy”, “Uncle Marvin” and “Grandpa” to many nieces
