Russell F. Hauver, 87, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 4, 2020 at the Life Care Center of Auburn. He was born in Clinton, a son of the late Merrill W. and Doris F. (Cleveland) Hauver.

He enjoyed listening to country music, gardening and tending to his flowers and plants. Russ would spend countless hours making sure everything was just perfect. He had a wonderful sense of humor, a quick wit and he enjoyed a sharing a good joke. A devoted family man, Russ truly enjoyed when he was surrounded by them.
