June 17, 1937 – March 7, 2017
Clinton Havran, of Sealy, Texas, went to be with his Lord and Savior on March 7, 2017, while on vacation in Biloxi, MS. He was 79 years old.
Clint was born in Columbus, Texas, on June 17, 1937, to Anton and Annie Kaderka Havran. Clint attended Sealy schools and after graduating from Sealy High School in 1958, he enlisted in the United States Army in November 1958 and proudly served his country receiving an honorable discharge in April 1963. Shortly thereafter, Clint began a long career as a professional truck driver with Central Freight Lines and worked there until his retirement in 2000. After a short stint in retirement, Clint realized his life of impeccable service in the delivery business must continue so he began his second career with Steinhauser’s delivering feed full-time for many years. He continued working there part-time until his unexpected death. He mastered his profession by displaying excellent customer service skills, on time delivery and most importantly being a safe, courteous and professional driver. It is worth noting, that after over 50 years of driving a commercial motor vehicle, he was never involved in an accident.
Clint married Annie Mae Kasper on June 28, 1975, and together they enjoyed nearly 42 years of marriage.
Together, they understood the importance of serving the Lord, the values of hard work and raising a family. Even though they both continued to work at the time of his death, they found time for family, spending time with friends, eating out every Friday night and taking vacations to various parts of the country. Clint was especially loved and appreciated by his grandchildren; Dalton and Mikayla Kasper and his “adopted” grandchild “Bella Anderson”, their next door neighbors’ special needs daughter, who he had formed a special bond with. Clint was frequently seen picking up his grandchildren from school in Bellville, taking the group to Tony’s Restaurant in Sealy and taking them to various extracurricular activities they were involved in. Clint was always there for someone’s needs and enjoyed making a difference in their lives; he was a servant leader.
Clint is survived by his loving wife of nearly 42 years, Annie Mae Havran, daughter Sheila and husband Neal Hieber and son Adam Hieber of Houston, Texas, daughter Lori and husband Coy McCollum and son Cory McCollum of Boerne, Texas, stepson Dwayne and wife Melissa Kasper and their children, son Dalton and daughter Mikayla Kasper, all of Bellville, Texas, stepdaughter Sheryl Kasper of Dallas, Texas. He is also survived by his siblings; brothers George of Houston, Texas, and Albert of Sealy, Texas, and one sister, Mildred Durbin of Houston, Texas, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Clint is preceded in death by brothers Laddie, Charles, Robert and Jerry.
