DAVID ALAN "CHIEF" HAUGEN ~ Class of 1988
August 1, 1969 - July 19, 2010
David, 40, of Richland went to be with the Lord on July 19th. He was born on August 1, 1969 and grew up camping, fishing, and Jeeping with his family. Later in life David fell in love with driving, from bicycles to cars... he always enjoyed being on the road.
David graduated from Richland High in 1988. He worked at Hanford as a D&D worker for over 16 years where he was embraced by amazing coworkers that he also called friends. In his spare time he enjoyed playing cards, video games, and watching movies, but most of all he enjoyed the company of his two dogs (Jade & Pepper).
David was preceded in death by his grandparents and biological father (David James).
David is survived by his Father and Mother (Brian and Jennifer Haugen), sisters (Crystal Haugen and Corinne Washburn), niece & nephew (Madysen and Mason Washburn), and brother-in-law (Jake Washburn).
Services to celebrate David's life were held on Friday, July 23, 2010. There was a public viewing prior to the service from 1-2 PM. In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations be made to the American Heart Association on David's behalf. Special thanks to all the extended family that spent time with David, especially Aunt Dee.
