Leo Henry Havner passed away in his home on December 24. He was born on May 3, 1940 in Mentone, Alabama. Havner moved to California and he held various jobs in the agricultural field. The family eventually moved to Pepper Street in Farmersville where they settled into a home and had the Kyle family as next-door neighbors. This is where he met the love of his life Loretta. They were married on August 15, 1960 and shared 60 years together. Havner was active in the city of Farmersville. He coached a women’s slow pitch softball team several years. He was also a Little League coach for many years and coached a lot of the City’s youth. Havner also served on the city council and was the mayor of Farmersville from 1973-1974. In 1980 Havner moved to Exeter and started a successful construction business with his brother Clifford Havner. He worked at Havner Brothers Construction until he retired. He was a Los Angeles Dodgers and Rams fan. He was also an avid fisherman with many of his great catches mounted and placed on the walls of his home to awe guests. Havner was preceded in death by his wife Loretta who passed away 3 months prior. He was lost without her and many feel he could not bear the thought of a Christmas without her. He was also preceded in death by his parents John and Cora Mae and his brothers Wayne and Marshal.
