Please pass my deepest condolences to the Hill Family. Murl was a sweet person. Dad and Johnnie were more than neighbors. This brings back wonderful memories of how things used to be.

Hello Gary and Dunseith Alumni Friends,
Larry D. Haugen passed away at his home yesterday in Bottineau. Sympathy to Mary and her entire Haugen family on their loss.
Larry’s first year as a 6th grade teacher was at Dunseith Public Elementary.
While in Dunseith, he was also HS basketball coach.
Larry and Mary Haugen lived across the street from Dunseith High School
My brother, while in grade 6 at Dunseith School was fortunate to have ‘Mr. Haugen’ as 6th grade homeroom teacher.
Larry Haugen fondly remembered many former students.
Mr. Haugen also taught my brother’s children, several of my nieces and nephews here in Bottineau.
Larry Haugen had a great relationship with parents and past students.
I was fortunate to work in the same building with Mr. Haugen, for several years before he retired from Bottineau Public School.
As a 6th grade teacher, he carried an innumerable amount of patience.
A humble man who gave RESPECT, in turn he received RESPECT,
Larry was held with high esteem and regard by all who came in contact with him.
Mr. Haugen Professional Educator, was also well known as a Professional Painter.
POSTING FROM THE PAST

Glad to hear he had such a good time. Thank you for sharing, I had heard good things from a few others as well, so that is great.
As I write this, he is in surgery. Since he had his last defibrillator (his third), the site of the incision never healed properly. That was one of the reasons for the nursing home, his dressings needed to be changed twice daily. It hasn’t healed.
Last weekend, Dad and I were at the Hawk Museum Farm Show near Wolford, and he had a great time there too. That place is very important to Dad, he was on the board of directors for many years, and brought Dunseith kids out there on 8th grade field trips for many years, the first time about 50 years ago.
Anyway, his incision had opened up, so the nurse told me she could see metal from either his pacemaker or defibrillator. That’s not good, and so they are going in to remove one or both, and replace one or both, I guess we won’t know until he gets a look under the hood so to speak. This is becoming quite routine for Dad on one level, in that this is the seventh time they have opened him up to install, reinstall, replace batteries, and I’m assuming, change the filter.
He was in great spirits on the way in, and this point we assume the procedure is routine. However, at age 87, I don’t know many things that are routine in the same way they used to be.
Thanks again for your concern.
Peace and Power,
Thanks for checking out Art Rude Productions,

Beautiful fun-loving couple. This picture was taken the last night of our visit at the Pizza Inn. Gary
Gary and Friends,
This same story was told to me by my dad, but not in the detail that Larry brought out. He also mentioned who it was but I am not sure anymore who he said. He was really laughing when he told me how the thing went down—it was funny! Good one, Larry! Dad also told about a guy, back in the late ’40s, who was driving an old single axle gravel truck and was really a wild man on wheels. He came tearing back into the old east gravel pit and slid the empty truck sideways and caught a ridge and tipped the truck on its side. As the workers were running toward the overturned truck, the guy threw out the grease gun and climbed out and said, “Looks like a hell of a good time to give it a grease job!” The boss grabbed the grease gun from him and said, “It probably is, but you won’t be greasing it—your fired!” I DO know who that was, but better leave it alone! Thanks Gary!

Sounds like you had a good time being back in the states for a while.
I saw this story in the Devils Lake Journal about Gary Fulsebakke and since he grew up in the Dunseith area, I thought your readers would like to see it.
Larry, Thank you so much for sharing.
Gary Fulsebakke, Congratulations. You have come a long way and have done very well from your childhood days being raised on your family farm adjacent to the Peace Garden. Gary
These are several newspaper articles and John Tangen’s picture that were among the pictures we recently found in my Grandmother, Julia Stokes’, suit case.
My Grandmother, like most of the Ackworth community, was Methodist. I remember well, in my really younger days, the Methodist church services that were held in the Ackworth school. Do any of you remember Rev. Samuelson?
Esther Thompson Tangen’s mother was a

Esther passed away several years ago.

John Tangen, Son of Esther and Edmar. John lives in either Oregon or California. John, I’m sorry I forgot which. I don’t have your address. Please let us know.
John attended school and graduated from Bottineau. He is a first cousin to the Eldon/Ella Pladson children. John is also on our distribution.
John, this is a beautiful picture. I remember you being so faithful to your mother when she was in Good Sam. Your mother was such a kind hearted sweet lady. She had a sharp mind remembering our family history well. I picked her brain shortly before she passed on about some family stuff of which she remembered well. Gary
Gary and Friends,
Great response on the folks in the pictures! Picture #12 — Harvey and Eileen Sebelius, Marcie (Mrs. Henry) Hackman, Marion (Mrs. Larry) Hackman, Larry Hackman, and in front Armella and Lawrence Hetle. I didn’t know the Hackman boys married sisters until the reunion. They are Schneider’s from south of Rugby, Larry told me. I think he wanted to keep the German genetics going. Right Larry? Thanks Gary!
Thank you, Dick, this almost wraps up the identification of this batch. We still need to ID the gal on the right in Picture #14. I have a few more pictures that I will be posting in days to come. I will repost Myra Henning Halvorson’s pictures too, that I posted from ND with no identifications. Folks, again please send pictures. Gary
