Michael Gene Haas was born on August 14, 1955 in Canby, Minnesota. He was the son of Carl and Jeannette (Larson) Haas. He was baptized and was confirmed at First Lutheran Church in Marshall, Minnesota. He grew up in Marshall and graduated from Marshall High School class of 1974.

As a young man, Mike lived in the Twin Cities and worked many odd jobs. He also was employed at a veterinary clinic in Hampton, MN where he resided for 20 years. Mike moved back to Marshall 13 years ago, and met his Life Partner, Shari Citterman.

Mike had many enjoyments in his life. He loved to listen to and dance to music, especially Country, Rock & Roll and Elvis. Mike was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved to call his siblings and share his great gift of storytelling. He had a great love for his birds, his favorite being his Green-headed Amazon Parrot named “Goobie”. Mike enjoyed playing drums, watching Vikings and spending time with his family and girlfriend. He will be dearly missed.
