Stanley Leroy Haag, a longtime resident of Washougal, WA, died peacefully in his home on Jan. 23, 2023. He was 80 years old. Stan was born in Kadoka, SD, to Howard and Evelyn (McMahon) Haag, and was blessed with eight siblings who were his friends all through life.
Stan’s family moved to Clark County from South Dakota in the 50’s. After serving his country in the Navy, he returned to Washougal where he raised his three daughters and created a legacy for his children and grandchildren. He was a strong presence in the lives of his family, setting an example of hard work, compassion, and having fun.
Stan enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, golfing, and vacations with his brothers and sisters to Mazatlán and Hood Canal. He was an active person who liked to be busy, and even in retirement he worked tirelessly around his yard. Stan was a kind man who was liked by all who knew him, and he had a huge heart. He was blessed with a large extended family and lots of love, but first and foremost, his children and grandchildren were his greatest treasure and he loved them beyond measure. His grandkids have lots of wonderful memories of playing at papa’s house, golf cart rides, and eating his homemade French fries.
Stan was preceded in death by his parents; and his brothers, LuVerne and Danny Haag; sister-in-law, Bettie Haag; and brother-in-law, Gary Horton.
He is survived by siblings, Fritz (Judy) Haag, Ray Haag, Judy (Barry) Smith, Suzanne (Ric) Watts, LaVonne Horton, and Jim (Jill) Haag.
