Darwin and Reva Haskins were married on May 1, 1960 in Irwin, Iowa. Manning has
been their home since that time. Darwin was born on May 2, 1932, in Scranton,
Iowa, to Lyle and Lillian (Ellsworth) Haskins. He is the oldest of nine children.
The family moved to the Gray, Iowa, area where he graduated in 1950. After
serving in the Navy for four years, he settled in Manning. He has worked for
Detlefsen Electric since 1964. Reva was born July 27, 1941, near Manilla, Iowa,
to Frank and Eva (Buthman) Birks. She has two brothers, Allen of Manilla and
Randy of Irwin, and a sister Peggy Ahrenholtz of Manilla. Reva graduated from
Manilla in 1959. She has been employed at the Manning Plaza for nearly twenty years.
The Haskins are the parents of three daughters: Karie,
Kris, and Kelly; all three children graduated from Manning High School and live
in the Manning area. Karie's family includes husband
Dixon Cole, his son Matt and wife Susannah and their triplets James, Madelynn
and Hannah and his daughter Andrea Troutner and
husband Jeff and daughter Grace. Kris' family includes husband Jim Waterbury
and their children Adam, Alisa, and Rhea. Kelly's family includes Chad Bald and
children Jessica Nissen and Tanner Bald.
Darwin had the good fortune of playing fast pitch softball for over forty
years. He has also been on the football chain gang for over forty years, having
the opportunity to work on it during his grandson Adam's high school years and
also working it for Manning's state championship game in 2002, Adam's senior year.
The entire family has enjoyed fishing trips to Minnesota and also enjoys bowling and golfing together.
