Glenn Gerald Haan, 82, of Weston, passed away in the comfort of his home and surrounded by loving family on Monday, July 26, 2021. He had been in the loving care of his daughter, Glenda Haan, since his three-year battle with Alzheimer’s Disease began. Glenn was born on his family farm in Emmons County, ND, on March 16, 1939, a son of the late Gerrit Haan and Ella Winterberg Haan. In addition to his parents, Glenn was preceded in death by one grandson, Kelly Diehl; and three siblings: Arnold Haan, Kenneth Haan, and Marlene VanBeek. On June 21, 1962, Glenn married his “next door childhood sweetheart”, Carol Nieuwsma and they shared just over 59 wonderful years of marriage together.

Glenn also served as a proud member of the Bakkar School Board in Hague, ND. He spent 27 years caring for the family farm in North Dakota before accepting a position in 1989 as manager of a Super 8 Motel in Weston, WV.
