Joseph Darrell Haws was born August 13, 1951 to Darrell R Haws and Clarice Mitchell Haws in Provo, Utah. Following his father’s tragic passing in 1969 Clarice married Eugene W Lloyd, affectionately known as Geno. Dad left behind his battle with cancer to be embraced in the arms of the Savior, surrounded by his family on June 12, 2021.
Joe married Kristine Hurst on November 10, 1976 and together raised 6 “Hawsome” children. He later married Catherine Goodrich on February 14, 2006. He openly welcomed stepson, Isaac Goodrich as well as our sister, Jordan Pruitt. In 2017 Joe was able to meet daughter, Michelle Huff, and more recently son, Phillip Stahle.
Dad was the “Joe” of all trades and had a firm work ethic. He had many talents and hobbies including carpentry and woodworking, jewelry making, hunting, baking, sewing blankets, vermicomposting for his indoor farming and collecting antiques. Joe is known for his gifting of $2 bills, chili, pies, juices, ghost pepper jelly, and growing hot peppers.
Joe was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He proudly worked in the Provo Tabernacle, now Provo City Center Temple and the St. George, UT Temple. He recently celebrated 16 years of sobriety and actively served as a missionary conducting the LDS Addiction Recovery Program.
Dad will be greatly missed by his children: Brenda (Lance) Atwood, Joe (Amy) Haws, Jill (Ryan) Watts, Diana (Riley) Bevell, Kelli Haws, Eric Haws, Michelle (Matt) Huff, Phil (Heather) Stahle, stepson Isaac Goodrich, our sister Jordan Pruitt, along with 28 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren with another on the way. His siblings: Susan Haws, Sylvia (Larry) Walters, Mitch (Lindy) Haws, Shirley Peterson, Tim (Lisa) Lloyd, Ron (Elvonna) Lloyd and our Grandpa Gene Lloyd.
Dad was welcomed home by his parents, Darrell and Clarice, brother Johnny Alonzo, Catherine, and grandparents, Joseph and Theora Haws & Gordon and Katie Mitchell, whom he adored.
