HARRIS

Charles Nelson Harris

Charles Nelson Harris died at his Davis home on Memorial Day, May 28, 2001. Born to Donald Frederick Harris and Mary Lauretta Walker in Berkeley on June 1, 1914, he was 86.

He had five older siblings, Cecil Harris Coyle, Donald Edward Harris, Mary Lauretta Harris, Brady Newman and John Frederick Harris, who preceded him into death. He also has a younger sister, Annabelle Harris Palmer of Fillmore.

Having many animals around the house turned into a lifetime love of his. He always remembered fondly his collie, Rex, who was the first dog of his own, and his sheltie, Sherry.

The family fell on hard times in the late 1920s and the three youngest children were moved to the Masonic Home in Covina. He attended Covina Union High School and at the age of 18, joined the Marine Corps. He completed four years of service, which was followed by four years in the reserve, where he became a rifle marksman.

While serving in the reserves, he worked in a variety of jobs, including selling perfume for the Owl Drugs Store in Oakland. During this time, his younger sister introduced him to Sylvia Jean Sale, known as Jean to those close to her. They courted and were married on June 18, 1939. With the assistance of his brother-in-law, Daniel Coyle, he became employed at the California Corrugated Pipe Company in Berkeley.

After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, he re-enlisted in the marines and was assigned stateside training troops for battle. By 1944, he was sent into the Pacific Theater, participating in the initial landing on Guam on July 21, 1944, and on to Iwo Jima on Feb. 24, 1945, where he suffered serious injuries to his right arm. He was awarded the Purple Heart Medal, the Good Conduct Medal, certificates of satisfactory service, honorable service button and an honorable discharge button. Upon his discharge on Dec. 27, 1946, he was made a sergeant.

He returned to work in the pipe company, which by this time was known as Armco. With the help of the VA bill, the couple purchased a house on Richmond Street in El Cerrito. He and his wife had a son, Edward Charles on Jan. 9, 1954, and a daughter, Sandra Jean, on Jan. 18, 1960. In 1956, his company moved his family to Davis, where they purchased their second home on 12th Street. He retired from Armco in 1977 after working for the company for 35 years. He and his wife joined the Lazy Loafers RV Club and traveled monthly to a variety of locations around California.

He spent his vacation time hunting, fishing, camping and instilling in his children and grandchildren a love for the outdoors. After retirement he took up golfing and for many years he was seen on 12th Street mowing lawns to pay for his new hobby.

Tragedy touched his life in 1979 when his only son, Ed, died in a motorcycle accident just outside of Sacramento. Part of the healing process for him came one year later in the form of a trip to Mount St. Helens in May 1980. He traveled with his longtime 12th Street neighbor, Frank Bauman. They returned to Davis just days before the mountain erupted.

He was a member of the Athens-Silveyville (Davis) Masonic Lodge No. 201, the Davis Veterans of Foreign Wars chapter and the Davis Senior Center.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Jean on Feb. 19, 2001.

He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Sandra Jean Harris and Michael Patrick Horn; grandchildren, Michele Jo, Scott Charles, Shannon Jean and Marni Patricia Horn of Truckee; brothers-in-law and spouses, Harry and Lena Sale of Richmond; Edward and Virgina Sale of Rydal, Pa.; nieces, Judith Coyle Janes of Ventura; Cynthia Sale Bonds of Pinole; nephews, Jack Brady of San Jose and Stephen Harris of Santa Rosa. He is also survived by numerous cousins, great nieces and nephews and some "adopted" grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent, in his name, to The Masonic Home, 1650 East Old Badillo, Covina, CA 91724 or The Truckee Community Foundation, P.O. Box 366, Truckee, CA 96160.

As the building of schools in the area slowed down in the mid-'70s, he went to work for Davis Joint Unified School District as director of maintenance, grounds and transportation.

Upon his retirement in 1986, he moved to the Big Island of Hawaii and lived in his motor home while he fulfilled a lifelong dream of designing and building his own home in paradise. It was here that he lived until last July, when he returned to California due to health problems.

During his time in Davis, he served as both an elder and a deacon at Davis Community Church, where he was active in Mariner's Groups and helped lead youth groups. He was also active in Lions Club, Paws and Taws Square Dancing Club and the Deep See'rs SCUBA Dive Club.

He participated in Scouting and 4-H groups with his children. Some of his happy memories included kite-flying, camping, fishing, sailing, backpacking, water skiing and cross-country skiing with his family and friends.

After moving to Hawaii, he was a member of the Ocean View Community Church. He traveled to foreign places such as Japan, Russia, China, Hong Kong and Norway, and usually took in a Lion's Club Convention while he was there. He also traveled with the American Red Cross to help out with disaster relief. During his time in Hawaii, he spent many happy hours playing pool and other games with his friends at the senior center there.

He will be missed by his survivors, including his wife, Virginia "Ginger" of Ocean View; son, James of Davis and his wife Virginia; daughter, Marti Fredericks and her husband Craig of Stockton; daughter, Mary Kay Pray and her husband Billy of Alturas; stepson, Bruce Wilson of Chicago; stepdaughter, Marta Sykes and her husband Ned of Sacramento; and grandchildren, Mark Adkins of San Lorenzo, Stephanie Harris of Santa Barbara, Michael Harris of Chico, Courtney Miller and Jodie Fredericks of Stockton, and Jason and Sheila Pray of Alturas.

He is further survived by many nieces and nephews, and many friends.

HARVEY

Gwen Clair Jacobsen Harvey

Gwen Clair Jacobsen Harvey, a co-founder and director of the Davis Parent Nursery School, died peacefully in the company of family on June 18, 2003. She was 87.

Born in Rickets, Iowa, on Aug. 7, 1915, she was the oldest of Arthur and Martha Jacobsen's seven children. She attended the University of Nebraska for three years before becoming a medical technician.

She met her husband, William Alfred Harvey, in 1937. They married two years later and moved to Washington, where Harvey worked as a nurse's aide during World War II.

The couple moved to Davis in 1945, and their daughter Martha was born the following year.

In 1950, Harvey was among the parents who started the Parent Nursery School at its original site in the Boy Scout cabin on First Street in Davis. She served as assistant director, then director until 1962, her family said, tirelessly working with parents to fund and plan construction of the first Parent Nursery School building at the West Eighth Street site.

A dedicated flower and vegetable gardener, she won many prizes -- especially for her roses -- at the Dixon May Fair, Yolo County Fair and State Fair.

Harvey was also one of the initial supporters of the Davis Art Center. A talented craftswoman, she created batiks, pottery and mosaics, but had a special interest in weaving and spinning. She was a member of the Woodland Weavers and the Sacramento Weavers, as well as president of the Yolo Weavers Guild. She was one of the first Davis residents to raise silkworms and produce her own silk, her family said.

Widowed in 1989, Harvey became an enthusiastic and extensive traveler, visiting every continent. For her 80th birthday she toured China and Mongolia; two years later, she traveled to Iguazu Falls in Argentina.

She spent the eve of the millennium in Devon, England, with her daughter, English son-in-law Ian Griffiths and her grandchildren Jackson and Laura. They survive her, as do her sisters Adeline Wright and Polly Brazier and her brother Jim Jacobsen.

A celebration of Harvey's life will be from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, 2003, at 14 Parkside Drive in Davis.

HAUSSLER

Robert Reed Haussler, Sr.

Robert Reed Haussler Sr. died peacefully July 14, 2004, at his home in Davis. He was 89 years old, and had lived in Yolo County nearly his entire life.

Born Jan. 28, 1915, in Davis to Gustav and Gladys Haussler, he was a member of a pioneer Davis family. He attended elementary and high school in Davis, graduating in 1934. He later attended UC Berkeley until World War II.

He entered the U.S. Army in 1943 and was sent to Rutgers University by the Army to finish his engineering degree. After graduating in 1944, he was sent to France and Germany to build bridges. In 1945, he returned to the United States and worked for PG&E in the construction of heavy-duty power lines to Bakersfield.

HAWKES

Glenn Rogers Hawkes

Glenn Rogers Hawkes, a longtime administrator at UC Davis and an early developer of Project Head Start, died of natural causes on March 9, 2004, at the University Retirement Community in Davis. He was 84.

Born April 29, 1919, in Preston, Idaho, Hawkes was the sixth of 11 children born to William and Rebecca Hawkes of Preston.

Hawkes provided leadership for applied social sciences at UCD for more than two decades and then, after retirement in 1989, devoted the next several years to nurturing an international exchange between foreign professionals and students and UCD.

Reared in rural Idaho on a homestead farm, Hawkes remembered his family raising dry-farmed wheat, corn and livestock. After being drafted in 1941, Hawkes served as a counselor in the U.S. Army during World War II. He returned to college after his military service to complete undergraduate work in psychology at Utah State University. He went on to complete a doctorate in educational psychology from Cornell University in New York in 1950.

Hawkes then taught about child socialization, disadvantaged families and adult development at Iowa State University for 16 years, serving as head of the child development department for much of that time. While in Iowa, he received a faculty citation for distinguished service and outstanding teaching.

He was also involved in the creation of Project Head Start, a major program in President Johnson's War on Poverty in the mid-1960s. Hawkes traveled to remote communities to help organize the program that was devoted to giving young children a better start in school. Besides setting up programs to help poor children learn to read and write, Hawkes remembered teaching their parents to ask questions and work with local physicians to get help.

Hawkes joined UCD's College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences in 1966 as an associate dean, representing the social sciences and humanities within the college.

His arrival coincided with a growing appreciation among both scholars and the public that agriculture impacted the community, said Charles Hess, who was dean of the college for much of Hawkes' tenure as an administrator.

"Glenn Hawkes was a champion for the faculty that dealt with social aspects and impacts of agriculture upon people and their communities," Hess said. "He was always reminding us that we needed to pay more attention to our ability to apply social theories to improving the lives of people."

Professor Hawkes also was legendary for his rapport with students as well as his warmth and collegiality with staff and faculty.

"He had a very warm heart and students would seek him out," Hess said. "When students came to the dean's office, they knew to ask for him because Glenn was so receptive and understanding."

Hawkes later left the dean's office to go into full-time teaching and research in the department of applied behavioral sciences and chaired that department in the mid-1980s through a difficult transition. The department eventually was renamed the department of human and community development in 1992.

One of his colleagues, Professor Emerita Emmy Werner, remembers that Hawkes was great adviser to students who chose to focus on gerontology in the department's newly minted human development doctoral program.

After he retired in 1989, Hawkes became the campus administrator of the Hubert Humphrey Fellowship Program, sponsored by the U.S. Information Agency. Mid-career professionals from throughout the world came to UCD where Hawkes served as the campus' chief ambassador and host.
