Nanticoke

Terrence E. Havens, 65, of First Street, Honey Pot, Nanticoke, died May 24, 2020 at John Heinz Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine, Wilkes Barre.

He was born July 6, 1954 in Nanticoke and was the son of the late Chester Byron and Kathryn Foltz Havens.

Terry was employed as a Water Treatment Plant Operator "A", for PA American Water Company at the Crystal Lake Water Treatment Plant and was a member of Utility Workers of America AFL-CIO Local #537.

He was a graduate of J.S. Fine High School, Class of 1972. During his lifetime, Terry was a 3rd degree member of the Knights of Columbus Nanticoke Council #913, a Republican committeeman, Judge of Elections in the 1st Ward, Nanticoke City Republican Chairman, a Notary Public, and was affiliated with the Nanticoke Little league for 32 years, serving as an umpire, coach, and league officer. He was a member of the former St. Francis of Assisi Church, Nanticoke, where he was a holy name member, lector, CCD teacher, and coach of the parish basketball team.

Terry was beloved by his brothers, sisters, in-laws, numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews. To all his nieces and nephews he was much more than an Uncle. He strived to be more to many within his community. His message should be carried on, "Go out and do good in the world, and help other people". All who knew Terry found him to be generous, caring, and selfless. He will be greatly missed.
