He received his early education in both McIntosh and Fosston schools. In 1944, at the height of WWII he enlisted in the US Navy. Upon his discharge, he enrolled in and graduated from Dunwoody Institute, Minneapolis, MN. In 1952, he married the love of his life, his dear bride, Marian (Colsen) Haugen. They resided in and around Fosston, MN for their entire marriage of over 61 years. After a period of time working as an auto mechanic he began a thirty year career as the manager of Schraeders Auto Parts Store in Fosston. Upon retiring from that position, he and Marian continued their business of Haugen Refinishing and Crafts. This endeavor allowed them to spend time together and was a creative outlet for both of their artistic personalities. Norval loved working with wood, especially oak. Norval and Marian were delighted to welcome five children to their young family. In 1953, Susan was born quickly followed by Bruce (1954), Daniel (1958), Amy (1960), and last, but not least, Brian (1963). Norval enjoyed fishing, golfing, auction sales, Twins baseball, watching birds, and listening to both country and gospel music, and he loved keeping and maintaining a beautiful yard. He was a faithful member of Calvary Free Lutheran Church in Fosston where he served as a trustee and in various other capacities. Norval and Marian continued to be blessed as the years went by. They were given the wonderful opportunity of enjoying eight grandchildren and later on, twelve great grandchildren. After a brave fight against Parkinson's Disease, he entered First Care Essentia Health Living Center in Fosston in May, 2012. He passed away there on Sunday, June 22, 2014 at the age of 88 years. Norval is survived by his wife, Marian of Fosston; his five children, Susan (John) Berg of New York Mills, MN, Bruce Haugen of Fosston, Dan Haugen of Renton, WA, Amy (Alan) Kachel and Brian (Karen) Haugen of Elk River, MN; eight grandchildren, Sarah (Tim) Jahnke, Carl (Laura Mapp) Berg, Erik Berg, Rachel (Chris) Fencl, Jason (Jen) Haugen, Chrissy Munter, Kayla Kachel and Mariah Kachel; 12 great grandchildren, Gabriel, Selma, Caleb and Seth Jahnke, Madison, Christian and Chloe Haugen, Wyatt, Axel, Owen and Carly Munter, and Natalie Scheuermann; his sister, Gladys (Harold) Vig of Fosston; and numerous nieces and nephews whom he dearly loved.
