C.J. "Chuck" Haviland 1927 - 2008 MANCHESTER C.J. "Chuck" Haviland died Thursday Nov. 6. He was born Aug. 15, 1927, son of Clarence E. and Lily Dobson Haviland. Chuck joined the Navy after Pearl Harbor and served on a destroyer that was converted to a mine sweeper, the U.S.S. Knight. We heard many harrowing tales of exploding mines and Halsey's typhoon. He was a member of the V.F.W. Harned Fowler Post 6471. His niece Kathy Wickert recently took him to see the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. He was so happy to be able to see all the memorials. Chuck was self-employed as an electrician and many other ventures. Previous to that he worked for E.J. Markey Electric as well as owning and operating Haviland House, an Inn, with his family. Chuck loved to golf, take day trips and had a lot of laughs over the years with Roman the dog, a Rat Terrier who ran circles around him.

Last, but not least, his "other" family Dick and Kay Schlieder and family. Chuck played golf with Dick as well as many games of ping-pong and was "Uncle Chuck" to the family. Doug and Nancy Wood of Danby, with whom he played golf and took day trips; his long time helper Marlene Holcomb, who aided Chuck more times than we can remember and was a cheerful, loyal friend right to the last.
