February 19, 1935 – September 2, 2020
Laverne Hauer of Lacombe, passed away at the Continuing Care Centre on September 2, 2020 at the age of 85 years.
Laverne grew up on a farm near Consort and throughout his life maintained his love of farming. His other lifelong passion was flying and he flew many planes all through his career as a pilot.
He was very proud of his achievements as a pilot and the diversity of the planes he had experience with. Some of his career highlights were flying an A-26 Invader Waterbomber, formation flying with the B-26 and C-310, Twin Cessna 310, Cessna 207 and Lockheed Lodestar.
He was also an accomplished Flight Instructor, teaching for many years and many students. Laverne spent many years as a member of the Lacombe Flying Club and looked forward to the Fly In Breakfast every year. When not piloting for work, he also enjoyed travelling and would take trips with his wife to Las Vegas, Bahamas and Mallorca, Spain.
He was predeceased by his wife of 45 years, Donna Jean Hauer in 2018. A private ceremony will be held in the spring with burial to follow.
If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Lacombe Flying Club, 3910 63 Avenue, Lacombe, Alberta, T4L 0E5.
