Mr. Havener and his wife had been winter visitors to Casa Grande for 15 years prior to moving to town in 2005. He was born on Dec. 4, 1927, to Hubert and Esther Havener in Bussey, Iowa. He grew up on his parents’ farms in the Bussey and Harvey, Iowa, area. He graduated from Knoxville High School in 1945 and began college at Iowa State University. He finished at Colorado A&M (now Colorado State University), where he met his wife, Patricia Cheney. They were married on March 29, 1950. He taught high school for two years in Iliff, Colo., and then served two years in the Korean War. They resided in the Vail Valley in Colorado from 1954 to 2005.
