It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Chris Habers at the age of 87 years. Chris was a longtime resident of Lumby. He was born in Appledorn, Holland and moved to California with his family in 1956, then on to Seattle in 1966.

In 1968 he made his final move to Lumby where he made a home for his family. Chris is survived by his loving family; sons, Willy (Joannie) of Lumby and Leo (Janene) of Denver, Colorado; two grandchildren, Ann of Modesto, California and Mark (Misty) of Denver, Colorado; and 1 great grandchild, Margo of Denver, Colorado. Chris was predeceased by his loving wife Mary in October 1990. The family would like to thank Dr. Bhat and the Nursing Staff in the Emergency Ward, and a very special thank you to Dr. John Wheeldon, Dr. Schuch and Dr. Naude and to all the loving and caring nurses on the third floor, east wing for the very special care for our father Chris. A Committal Service will be held at Pleasant Valley Cemetery on Friday, April 13th, at 2:00 p.m.
