From the 2006 Manning Quasqui history book
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.
