Our father, Hollis Haws, passed away quietly surrounded by family on Tuesday, 14 December, 2021. Hollis was born on July 5, 1935 to Owen Alonzo Haws and Eva Viola Manwaring Haws. He was the youngest of four children, and grew up on the family homestead in Naples Utah. Following graduation from Uintah High School in May 1954, he enlisted in the United States Air Force. Hollis' military assignments included bases in Texas, Wyoming, France, Utah, Turkey, Colorado, Texas, Japan, New Mexico and Arizona.

Hollis retired to Vernal, Utah in 1974 following a long and honorable career. Hollis spent his post Air Force years working at Five Star Auto Supply, City Body Shop as well as Basin Auto Supply where he developed life-long friends. A marriage to LaRae Parker produced a son, Michael, who sadly passed away in January 2015. Hollis married Rosemary Ariel Shores on December 23, 1962. They were married over 58 years. Hollis and Rosemary had two children, Terry and Reba, who were born In Japan.

In his free time, Hollis enjoyed gardening and spending time with his grandkids as well as participating in events with the members of his American Legion Post.

Hollis leaves behind son Terry (Sandy) Haws of Moses Lake WA, daughter Reba Haws of Vernal UT, daughter-in-law Shelly Parker of Ogden UT, and a brother Irvin of Vernal UT. He also leaves behind 9 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Marvin, his sister Vena, his son Michael, and his wife Rosemary.
